    Use only as a reference book!

    I bought this book after reading the free chapter thinking I would learn how to program with Cocoa for the Max OS X platform. Two hundred pages into this and no programming.
    This book is good for reference only.
    It takes you on the history of Unix, Cocoa, some older programs that Apple used to use, breaks down in depth what particular windows do, classes, etc... But never once teaches you how to build a project.
    You can download prewritten projects on Wiley's website, but this does nothing for those wanting to learn how to code with Xcode.
    I am at page 200 and am looking for a new book. I will keep this for reference only.
    Do not read this book if you do not have any experience with Xcode or programming for the Mac platform(s). You will become so confused you may throw your hands up in disgust.
    No wonder why few people program for Apple and this explains why the programs that are out there are way behind those of Microsoft software products.
    I am not going to let the complexity hinder me in learning how to program.
    You should find another book, buy this only as a reference.
    For those that are coding with Xcode and Interface Builder this book might help you troubleshoot your program.
