That said, as there is no electronic edition, I do now wish I had held out (even lobbied :) for such to make the work more easily accessed and searched as a real developer reference. However, per his recent Embarcadero web cast (available on Embarcadero's YouTube channel), the author has stated that no PDF, no Kindle, nor .mobi edition is/are planned -- very disappointing as I explain hereafter.
While likely not the author's deliberate intent if creating an instructional guide, the absence of such modern reading/reference conveniences (search, zoom, notate, page-mark, share/cite, etc) will seem quite alienating to the youthful developers this book needs to attract before we remaining Delphi developers contract Covid-19 ;-). Ironically, as the book proposes front-end Web development using Delphi (Object Pascal), without such modern documentation conventions in place, the soft-covered edition I just purchased has me now reminiscing of life not just before Covid-19, but before Google, before Yahoo!, before Mosaic, and even before the World Wide Web.
As I work through the book's printed material (while still hoping for an electronic edition to appear), I will update this review accordingly with more specifics on the book's contents (its 'fit' and 'function' so to speak, rather than just commenting on its utility -- or lack thereof -- in its presently paper-only 'form').
