Great reference book for when you need more in-depth, fundamental knowledge on topics that are only briefly discussed in other books. I wouldn't recommend it as your first iOS developer book, but more as a companion or reference book as you learn iOS development. Full Review  >

Another iOS book, and a definitive chunky book to go through, but this book isn’t designed for someone who has to read it cover-to-cover. This book is in fact a complete A-to-Z of concepts and topics in iOS, that should cover almost all of what you need. Beyond this book, you can focus on a specific topic. The second iteration of this book also introduces new iOS 5 concepts such as ARC memory management, the concept of adding private declarations within the implementation files and so forth, bringing your reference book up to speed with what’s current.
