Unstructured introduction to iPhone development, 18 Oct. 2012
I was recommended this book by a work colleague but I have been very disappointed with it. I started reading it for a first time but the topics were introduced in such a chaotic order that I went away and read a pure Objective-C manual first. When I came back a second time to work through it I was equally disappointed and would have been totally lost had I not read the Objective-C book first. The intensions of the authors are valid - to make the book interesting and fun, but where it falls down is that they don't introduce the topics and concepts in a logical order. I was also using the 2nd Edition which was published in June 2011 and it's already quite out of date. Avoid this book would be my advice and look for a more traditional manual that has been published at least from 2012 onwards.
