The book is pretty much the shipped docs, with a more professional layout,
but based on the docs of an earlier (0.99.14 IIRC) FPC version. It only
documents the language and the core units.
I got a copy when it was released, and I found myself using it from time to
time as a language and runtime library reference. It is simply faster in
usage than using the online docs. If you really spend a lot of time using
FPC, it can be a time saver, even if it doesn't go further than the ordinary
