'I urge you to read this book especially if you're concerned with user manuals. If all books were presented with such clarity, much time and effort would be saved.' Computer Bulletin
'I wish this book had been around when I was learning Pascal.' Personal Computer World
'Very few books have made learning a computer language as easy as this one has, and it can be recommended to all.' ST World Magazine
' … this is a book that's a joy to recommend to anyone wishing to start writing Pascal programs.' Personal Computer Weekly
'Don't buy a book on Pascal until you've looked at this illuminating and illuminated manuscript.' Personal Computing with the Amstrad
This book is an introduction to programming in Pascal. It starts with the fundamental concept of a stored program and works through to the manipulation of records in dynamic storage. The style of presentation is pictorial. This book may be used as a self-contained reference manual for Pascal to BS 6192 and ISO 7185.

One of the nice things is that it just covers the language, not whatever IDE you are using (for the RPi I use Lazarus).
I believe this book is out of print now but it is well worth finding a copy. If you program in "C" it is also worth searching out his companion book "Illustrating C" . Though somewhat elderly now it uses the same style.
The author chooses to present his books in a handwritten style. The means the book looks like someone scribbled notes into an exercise book and jotted some illustrations around the text. Although unusual I think this style works.
If I had to recommend any book on Pascal this would be the one.
Would be useful for someone who needed a crash course in Pascal for a Delphi project maybe. Although wouldn't cover the OO extensions.
