Should be on your bookshelf,
Along with "Palm OS Programming: The Developers' Guide", this is a must have addition to your bookshelf if you wish to be proficient in devloping Palm applications. It is more up to date than the other book; but is complemtary to it. With the two books together, all aspects of Palm programming for the serious developer are handled. But beware, this is not a trivial beginners book.

Higher rated if better examples and Function reference
If you want to display a form how do you do it? The key is using api function calls. So where is the comprehensive list of api calls along with easy to understand examples? There is none. Not in this book. You have to think of what you want to do then brouse the index in the back and hope something jumps out. Then you have to go to the various parts of the book where the fuction call is indexed and determine what the call is doing by analysing the sample code. The whole process works but, whoa is it slow and exhausting.
