Bottom line: if you're new to iOS development and need to come up to speed quickly on the frameworks and what they can do for you, this is a good investment of money & time.
Now having released my IOS app (Bumfoozle) to the app store, I wanted to publicly thank Shawn for this helpful book. I referred to it many times as I developed my puzzle. His explanations were very clear, and made the whole development process go much smoother.
I definitely recommend this book to any developer who wants to start building iOS applications and doesn't have any previous experience with Objective C and/or Cocoa. The book slowly builds on programming principles and Cocoa patterns, never assuming that you should know this or that. While knowing a bit of Objective C definitely helps, the author explain each concept good enough to allow you to progress with the book without wondering what in the world have you just wrote.
I highly recommend this book as a foundation laying book for beginning app development and will be looking forward for any iOS books written by Shawn!
For me, this book provided more clarify to implement Core Data and iCloud with two of my current projects.

iOS 5 Core Framework Develop and design is the missing manual for iOS development. It's a great read and put together the way we develop. The examples are complete and poignant. Read morePublished on March 19, 2012 by Bill In Memphis
