I had a good understanding of Objective-C but haven't used it for a while and thought this book would be useful to jog my memory which it did; as well as this it also gave me a number of new useful tips!

There are plenty ios cookbooks and they're all on par, bu this book approaches ios an OS X stuff equally almost and does give some clarity to some things often missed elsewhere.
You won't learn Objective-C from scratch with this book, but it will definitely bring you a deeper understanding of the language. It's also a great desktop reference book for some of the darker corners of the Objective-C language -- stuff like array filtering, file operations, threading, core data, etc.
On the negative side, I'd like to see more on certain topics (exceptions, macros, ARC), but mostly I wished there was more about the Objective-C runtime and all of the cool stuff it can do. Still, I give it 4 stars.
