Delphi literature choices are very limited these days (blame Borland not Embarcadero). As a rapid-development tool for the Windows platform, Delphi has many advantages if you can look beyond its verbose syntax compared to the C family of curly brace languages. This book is still very relevant and will certainly get you started without any pain. It does not cover the newer cross-paltform Firemonkey framework (which although very promising is not ready for prime-time yet), and its database topics are dated but still very useful taken together with Embarcadero's online documentation wiki. VCL is well covered along and there are some important Windows specific topics that are covered well. If you are looking to start in Delphi or reconnect as a former Turbo Pascal user, this is the only book that I found to recommend. Marco Cantu has published many books on Delphi, but his style tends to get you bogged down in convoluted details that can muddy the waters for perhaps even experienced programmers new to Delphi. Ivan Hladni's Inside Delphi 2006 is an easy ready with far more immediate practical applications.
