This review is from: Beginning iOS 5 Development: Exploring the iOS SDK (Kindle Edition)
I found this book an excellent and informative read. The author(s) style is very engaging and friendly.
It manages three key achievements that are rare in books:
(1) it assumes the reader knows *something*, so doesn't waste pages explaining things that anyone interested could find on google in 10 seconds.
(2) introduces material in manageable incremental steps. Almost all other books I've seen in this area tend to start dumb and after 30 pages skyrocket into the unknown, leaving me to watch the trail and wonder where it's all going.
(3) Avoids trying to go too deep into some bizarre specific point for "those interested", since all that can achieve for beginners is confusion. In other words, it's written for whom it says : beginners.
Well done to the writers. Thoroughly recommended. So much so, I will be looking into other books from these authors.
