This book was (and the previous edition) a great way to clear that hurdle. I spent about a month working the exercises in the book in my spare time. The last chapter of the book has you bringing all of what you had learned together to make an iOS app (fraction calculator) and expanding it's capabilities a little by little.
Shortly after completing the exercises I was able to write a couple of rudimentary apps on my own. I can now focus on the features of the app, and leverage what I have learned from this book to execute what I have in my head so to speak.
Kindle version is buggy, which stinks as I usually buy my technical texts on kindle or electronic format. Ipad kindle app is mostly readable, having problems cleanly displaying with some of the diagrams, program listings, and most of the equations. Characters are sometimes stacked or in the wrong place, exponents don't exist so you tend do guess as to what is meant. Luckily the text is well written and you can figure these out.
Very strange a primarily apple oriented subject can't be readily utilized on apple devices --I have a great many other titles that work fine, so you can't blame the devices.
Worth getting the book; but I'd get the paper version.
