Upshot: If you want to get into iOS Programming from the ground up 'the hard way' with current tools (XCode4, iOS 4.x) then this is the book for you. Pros: This is a soup to nuts 1200+ page book. Cons: This is a soup to nuts 1200+ page book. Seriously: Look at the table of contents. Full Review  >

I must say that this book wasn't quite what I was looking for in an iOS4 book. While the book contained good content, I thought it contained more concepts and theory over actual implementation. The book was divided up into 7 sections (the Language, the IDE, Cocoa, Views, Interface, Some Frameworks, and Final Topics). Full Review  >

This is my first uncut book that I am reviewing, and despite having that label, having being released without being edited in this current rough form, I find it to be quite the contrary. I haven't found any rough parts of the book, and the organisation of the book is exemplary. Full Review  >
