Best book for tipical programmer
Maybe Cantu's books are not the top level in technical details but they are the easier to read and understand.
There are no easy tricks to inflate page number here.
The examples are often useful but in the book you can find only code that matter, while in the companion cd you can find not only all the code but also the binaries.
All the chapters are in topic and there are no help duplicates (if you know what I mean).
There is a good coverage of Linux stuff like Xwindow, Qt primitives, RPC and an example about commanding Kde with Xml.
Databases are covered pretty well, expecially Interbase, and so the other "Delphi" parts.
In my opinion the only real lack is a chapter about MySql usage.
