A book of recipes in a nutshell!,
This review is from: Xcode 4 Cookbook (Paperback)
Iv had a quick glance through this book and it is pretty much as it says on the tin - it teaches you how to implement specific recipes and gives you a tutorial on each so you get to grips with it. It also gives an explanation on "how it works" just to help with your understanding.
I would say its not ideal for complete beginners and more suited for people who have got a reasonable grip with Xcode and are ready to take it to the next stage beyond the basic level where they are beginning to feel more confident and familiar with the programme.
There is a lot to this book and I would be lying if I said iv been through it all (its over 400pages) but you know your getting a reasonable amount of information with this for the price. It will take you a while to get through each recipe so its not going to be something your done and dusted with early.
I am not really aware of any other recipe books like this so if you want to get to better grips with more of the functionality of xcode I would check this book out. Ensure you are use to xcode a little first however and are committed to trying these recipes out as they will take a fair bit of time to implement I imagine.
Overall - does what it says on the tin!
