Excellent introduction to Objective-C,
This review is from: Programming in Objective-C (Developer's Library) (Paperback)Having recently decided to learn how to develop apps for the iPhone, I purchased this book as a guide and future reference to the Objective-C language, the underlying language for creating iPhone apps.
Stephen Kochan has a unique way of explaining the language that people who have never programmed before should be able to pick up this book and develop a good grasp of it. Unlike languages like C (a procedural) language which Objective-C is built on, Objective-C is an object oriented language, something that can be hard to get your head around.
Right from the start of the book in Chapter 3, Stephen gives you an introduction to Classes, Objects and Methods - the basics behind object oriented programming. The way he explains the concept of OOP to mere mortals without being condescending is very well done, and was able to make things clearer to me.
Although I am currently working on Chapter 6 of 21 of the 3rd edition, with the way the book is written so far, I believe I will have no trouble understanding the rest of the book - even the harder chapters.

just wanted to mention that c is also object oriented in a way. procedural by nature but you can use objects in it , objective c deals more with classes, pointers, ivars, methods, setters & getters functions and so forth which can get confusing.
