Programming in Objective-C (Developer's Library)
Programming in Objective-C (Developer's Library)
by Stephen G. Kochan
Edition: Paperback
Price: £33.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice book to start learning Objective-C, 7 Oct. 2011
This book is well-written and helps you understanding the peculiarities of objective-c (messages, protocols, categories etc), but it does not explain deeply each topic.. I gave it 4 stars since it is useful to understand what you can do with Objective-C, but if you want to understand each topic very well you must read the book and in parallel read the documentation on Apple developers' site. So, it is not for experienced Objective-C users, but for someone like me, that has programming experience in other languages and want to start coding in Objective-C.

4.0 out of 5 stars A pleasure to read, a cookbook-like approach, 7 Oct. 2011
Starting from the appearance, its very good-looking, with its full-color images and code snippets.. Colored code snippets make it easier to read and understand the examples. It is not a cookbook, but its approach is similar to a cookbook, since it explains small topics, presenting a problem or an objective and then explaining how to solve it. It has a particular approach to each problem, which may seem a little bit redundant at the beginning: it first tells what you are going to do and presents a full-code solution to the problem, then it explains how the code shown works rewriting piece by piece the whole code.. it wastes a far amount of pages doing that, but I think it is a good approach. I'm only at the beginning of the book, maybe in the future I will update this review with further considerations.
