About the Author
Jack Nutting has been using Cocoa since the olden days, long before it was even called Cocoa. He has used Cocoa and its predecessors to develop software for a wide range of industries and applications, including gaming, graphic design, online digital distribution, telecommunications, finance, publishing, and travel. When he is not working on Mac or iOS projects, he is developing web applications with Ruby on Rails. Nutting is a passionate proponent of Objective-C and the Cocoa frameworks. At the drop of a hat, he will speak at length on the virtues of dynamic dispatch and run time class manipulations to anyone who will listen (and even to some who won t). Nutting is the primary author of Learn Cocoa on the Mac (Apress, 2010) and Beginning iPad Development for iPhone Developers (Apress, 2010). He blogs from time to time at Nuthole.com.

I nearly gave up learning how to program my own apps however, after reading the first the chapters of this book my goodness is so informative, detailed, succinct and slow-and-steady learning. The book explains everything! a feature I appreciate greatly. Granted, even after reading the entire book....you won't be a professional but the fundamentals are taught wonderfully. I am very happy I found this book.
One thing you should note is that you should have a working knowledge of computer programming and object oriented programming with Objective-C. or if you know C and have worked with other object oriented languages then you should be fine but if you don't know the other two......you'll be utterly confused with this text.....
a quick test, if you are comfortable with the following terminology than you should be fine:
static and dynamic compiling
these are just a few terms you'd want to be familiar with and again, if you've studied object oriented programming in java or any other language that supports the capabilities than you'd be comfortable with these terms otherwise begin with a general programming text to learn the fundamentals, then read objective-c by stephen kochan, then this book.....yes it's a long journey, but it's worth it....at least to me. All in all it's taken me one year to learn how to program.....I've been studying consistently everyday if not every other day so believe me this isn't going to happen overnight but it's better to know what your working with before you make a decision about actually starting just to quit when you realize it's going to take a while.
