    One thought on “Cocoa and Objective-C: Up and Running: Foundations of Mac, iPhone, and iPad Programming”

    1. Unfortunately, this was too much of a beginner's book for me to get much out of it. The parts I cared about it glossed over and the parts I didn't need, the author spent lots of time on. Too much "here's what to do" and too little, "here's why to do it."

    2. Brief overview of Cocoa and Obj C. Doesn't go very in depth and doesn't explain the Obj. C concepts very well. No real exercises to do. Was disappointing. Big Nerd Ranch's book is much better.
