This book can not explain any better. This book gives step by step information on how to make just even the toughest app. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who's interested in making apps.

The book isn't bad I like the approach they took, the basic concept is you build a game slowly through out the book however there are parts that where you need more instruction and feel that parts are missing which sucks I like dummies books but this one just was hard to follow you always have to post on the dummies site to get help or clarification.

I've been wanting to learn iPhone game development for years and year and I finally started with this book. I've only been reading it for a day but it's already helping me! I can't wait to build my own games. Neal, Paris and Jon have a wicked sense of humor too!
