The complete book is being put on-line (without images). The two reasons we are doing this is to allow programmers to search the text and to promote Paradox. We strongly believe this will not decrease sales. There is something nice about flipping through a real book. Besides, a book is easier than the Internet to take to the park.

"Your book(s) is (are) *awesome*, and I would have altogether given up on Paradox long ago, had I not had them!"


"Excellent book. I have been developing in Pascal for 10 years, Access for 4 years. I wish they had a book like this. As for Paradox, without this book, I would be lost in the woods......without a paddle."

-R. Holdridge


"I already create Oracle applications in my work and got Paradox 9 on my home computer. I'm glad to see you use some of the same terms in reference to Paradox (such as using the term "trigger" in relation to an event). This helps me relate the two development systems. Having been a trainer of computer applications, I really like your presentation style. It is easy to follow and quite informative. Thanks for a good book."

"The value of both Paradox and your Book is beyond doubt and hesitation, not to be assessed in monetary value. Both are jewels!"
