I don't know who needs to hear this, but there are lots of modern, up to date books published about Delphi and Pascal with more being written all the time.

I have a bit of a preoccupation with new Delphi programming books and have blogged about them a bunch of times. The keen-eyed among you will notice that this is not a Delphi book, but you might recognise the author's name, Slobodan Dmitrović, from the Delphi community.

I know it's sometimes popular to reflexively say that Delphi's help sucks. And it's not like Borland and Embarcadero haven't given us some cause, but the documentation really has gotten much better over the years. Of course, there are still issues; New features that aren't well documented (placeholder pages), help topics that are automatically migrated to a new version, but links aren't updated or are broken, etc.
If you've noticed a mistake or have a pet peeve with the help and you're so inclined, there's something you can do about it.
