A pleasurable read from start to finish
By Captivate Apple
This is probably the best book on programming for Mac or iOS. The book language is clear and simple and there are no bugs within the example code. Many other programming books suffer with this problem. Cheers Mr. Hillegass, this book is worth it’s weight in gold.

I'll keep it very simple: if you're looking to become quickly competent to work with Onjective-C, this book is your pathway to success.
Mind you, I didn't say expert, but developing core competency is what this book is all about.
Liked it so much, I bought their iOS book to boot.

This is a great book to learn Objective C. The book teaches with the right balance of guidance and meaty content to challenge you. The authors teaching experience shines throughout the book. It is an enjoyable book!
Probably the best Objective-C book you can get
Finally a book that is interesting to read, and stays interesting to read even if you get deeper into the subject. The challenges at the end of each chapter are very helpful to make you not just understand what you're reading, but they make sure you can also apply your new knowledge. The chapters are not too long, so there's always the next chapter to look forward to. Also, I find the forum that comes with the Big Nerd Ranch books very helpful. You can ask questions and discuss the subject matter with others who are working through the same book. Aaron and other people from the Big Nerd Ranch are very active and helpful on the forum. To my humble opinion: if you're not able to learn Objective-C with this book, then Objective-C might just not be "your thing".
