I suspect that this book was originally called "Delphi Database Development" and was upgraded by adding the word "/Kylix" to the front cover. That appears to be virtually the only reference I can find to Kylix in the book. I appreciate that Delphi 6 and Kylix are supposed to be cross platform, but quite a few of Eric's examples are Windows specific referring to registry settings and dlls with no information on what is different in Kylix. That said, the explanations of how all the components connect are clearly laid out and fairly easy to follow. If you are a Delphi programmer you'll find it useful. If you're into Kylix you'll find it useful, but frustrating in places.
