I think it should be okay to start directly with Lazarus. Lazarus IDE
makes project management much easier and has some fantastic editor

I don't know about books, but any Delphi book should do. Free Pascal
and Lazarus is very close to Delphi.
Also to a few Google searches on the topic. Again, whatever you find
for Delphi should apply directly or at least very close to Lazarus.
If you get stuck, you can always post your questions here or in the
Lazarus mailing list.
