    WARNING - This book WILL waste your time!!

    There's many sections where it tells you to edit code that is in bold in the example, but none of it is in bold...but these are the least of my gripes. This book is saturated with spelling and grammatical errors - many of which will cause you to code incorrectly or even edit the wrong file! No, really. They just rushed this out to be the first ones to have a book on coding with the iPad. If only someone read it through once and edited it, maybe it would be alright, but this is completely unacceptable.
