 Please, suggest a good book!

--
Hi everybody,

Can anyone recommend me a good book to help me develop a small database on
Paradox 4.5 for Windows. I don't have much time to read, so something
direct to the point and with examples would be good.

I am volunteering on a community center which recently opened a food bank. They
want a  database for the customers, with reports, statistics, etc.

Thanks in advance,

 Salvador

I have six (6) books on Paradox for Windows.  I use v5 and v7.  I own
three books which are worth a damn, the best being _Programming Paradox
for Windows_ by Jensen and Anderson, 3rd edition, published by Sybex.  
Unfortunately it does require more reading than I would like.  

In terms of having good examples the best book I have is _Paradox for
Windows Power Programming_ published by Que.  This book has good
examples and is excellent in terms of minimizing excess verbage.  

Both of these books claim to be advanced - neither is.  I come to
Paradox by way of C++ programming where there are some excellent,
_advanced_ books.  Can anyone reccomend one?

I just picked up _Programming Paradox for Windows_ by Jensen and Anderson,
3rd edition. It's for Paradox 5. Will it be useful in v7? I'll be
developing under Win95/NT. The only books I could find were for v5. BTW,
what happened to v6?

Version 6 is now Version 7 for Windows 3.1.  Since they are
functionally *identical* programs (the main difference only being the
platforms they run on) Borland didn't want to hurt sales of the new
16-bit Paradox by making people think it wasn't as powerful as the 32
bit version.
