5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST book for starting IOS 5 development, January 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I can describe this book with a single word. Fantastic!

As some of the other reviewers mentioned, not having knowledge of Objective C can make following this book somewhat challenging. Not having any programming knowledge makes reading this book pointless. Having some knowledge of objective C is a must to fully reap the benefits of this book. As a background, my only programming knowledge before starting this upward (and somewhat steep) journey came from C which I learned over 10 years ago. I read two objective C primer books (and to save any beginners the trial and error of deciding, I would suggest Objective C programming: The big Nerds guide, followed by Programming in objective C 4th ed by Kochan). However reading the first one should be enough to get started with this fantastic book.

This book takes you up a steep hill using a "stairs" approach. Every step feels almost effortless as you move forward. The teaching style is very clear and does not assume prior knowledge of a subject, despite the fact that they explained that subject few chapters back. The exercises are very practical and they keep it simple and clear.

I highly recommend this book as a foundation laying book for beginning app development.

P.S. I purchased the Kindle edition of this book.
