About the Author
Stephen Kochan is the author and coauthor of several bestselling titles on the C language, including Programming in C (Sams, 2004), Programming in ANSI C (Sams, 1994), and Topics in C Programming (Wiley, 1991), and several UNIX titles, including Exploring the Unix System (Sams, 1992) and Unix Shell Programming (Sams, 2003). He has been programming on Macintosh computers since the introduction of the first Mac in 1984, and he wrote Programming C for the Mac as part of the Apple Press Library. In 2003, Kochan wrote Programming in Objective-C (Sams, 2003), and followed that with another Mac-related title, Beginning AppleScript (Wiley, 2004).

As a current OO-programmer transitioning to Objective-C, the best resource for me, so far, has been Lynda dot com and the Apple courses taught by Simon Allardice. Much more realistic and better-paced.
This book is very recommended, that is why I bought it.
But it turned out that this book is for beginners who don't have a C background and no Objective C background.
I have a strong C background and 2 months of Objective C experience.
I find about 15% of this book useful for me, since the rest I already knew.
Even Apple's ObjectiveC documents and tutorials are better.
I would recommend this book to beginners. But not to experienced programmers.
I've also never read a book that stays as current with new developments as this one does. A year ago I bought the 3rd edition, then the 4th. Now we're on the 5th and completely abreast with Xcode. Remarkable. And I was able to protect my investment in those other less effective books- because after this one, I actually knew what they were talking about.
So yeah- I owe a big thanks to this book. Thanks, book!
This one is more detailed or elementary if you want to say it in that way. But both cover what is needed and at the end you reach the same level of knowledge.
If you hate math and have problems reading small font you would go to BNR Guide. This one however helps you more if you only have elementary experience in coding.
Book is well organized and the examples are well explained. When you register your copy you'll be allowed for downloads and updates (non so far). What I miss here is the nice forum BNR has.
