August 2012 Developer's Poll

Unfortunately, there are not too many C++Builder books in existence (though, there are several on Delphi). I don't even recall the most recent C++Builder book.

I own at least three C++Builder books, the latest one (BCB6 Dev. Guide) from 2002.

Thanks in advance for your votes.

I agree on the number of books for C++ Builder.
I believe that I own all books published about C++ Builder starting from HOWTO (first book I buy), all of the unleashed series and finally both of dev guide.

Maybe it is time for another book.

Yes, all my books are for BCB6 and older. Most of the info is still relevant, as far as I can tell. I would love have something that tells me about the new features and advancements in the newer versions besides just a press release. It took me some time and effort to track down info on Unicode, for example, and most of that was in Delphi.

Glancing at the bookshelf I immediately see seven third-party books in addition to the Borland manuals. The earliest CPB book is Charlie Calvert's 'Unleashed' for version 3. I also have a couple of Delphi books although I don't have a current copy of Delphi.

The most referenced of them all, by far, are 'C++ Builder How To' and (surprisingly ?) Tom Swan's 'Foundations of Delphi' which I bought before CPB had been born and is still useful in certain basic areas.
