Firstly this book is a great reference book and is filled with very valuable examples that will save you loads of time in your next application. However it is not for someone who wants to learn Objective-C or how to write a iPhone App, if you want to learn that check-out something like Learning iPhone Programming by Alasdair Allan this will get you the basics of iPhone App construction.

After falling in love with other Cookbooks, such as the Flex and SQL cookbooks, this book gets the most prominent spot on my bookshelf (or e-book shelf). For the intermediary developers, this book follows the same cookbook format in providing concise and essential reference to all the components of an iOS application, for the iPhone or iPad.
