Overview

Programming in Objective-C is a concise, carefully written tutorial on the basics of Objective-C and object-oriented programming. The book makes no assumption about prior experience with object-oriented programming languages or with the C language (upon which Objective-C is based). And because of this, both novice and experienced programmers alike can use this book to quickly and effectively learn the fundamentals of Objective-C. Readers can also learn the concepts of object-oriented programming without having to first learn all of the intricacies of the underlying procedural language (C). This approach, combined with many small program examples and exercises at the end of each chapter, makes it ideally suited for either classroom use or self-study. Growth is expected in this language. At the January 2003 MacWorld, it was announced that there are 5 million Mac OS X users and each of their boxes ships with Objective-C built in.

This has to be the most well written book I've read so far. I can actually read it for hours on end without feeling burned out. Most books I've read have been on Java and they can be difficult at times to understand, so I end up having to backtrack and read the paragraph over again in order to understand what the author was trying to say. With this book I haven't had to do that once. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in programming in Objective-C.

The book is perfect for someone who is starting object oriented programing and is looking for a dynamic language to start with. This book covers programing on any platform. It doesnt cover making a user interface but there are other books that will cover that. Over all this book is a must have for anyone looking to get into programing, who doesnt want to get mixed up in a complicated language like c++.
