    Easy to read, All-in-one, Game Programming from an expert for a novice!

    It is obvious that this book has been written by an author who is not only full of knowledge in his field, but also has a talent for writing a book that makes game programming understandable for the novice. This book is a must buy for anyone interested in learning learning how to program their iPhone or iPod touch! It is complete and true to its "All in One" claim.
