The format of the book consists of concise recipes which state the problem and show how to implement a solution with easy to follow code samples. I love how the e-book has code samples in color with syntax-highlighting, Full Review >

From virtual cover to virtual cover (this review is of the electronic version), I've yet to find code that's incorrect or contains typos. Code is presented as it should be in a "Cookbook": on its own, with no extraneous information to cloud the detail on the subject. The subject matter runs the gamut from basic information about Objective-C such as syntax and working with data types to more advanced subjects such as the core libraries of iOS. The discussion of Core Data is especially nice, as is the section of Graphics. Full Review >

iOS 6 Programming Cookbook follows on from iOS 5 Cookbook, which I thoroughly enjoyed by Vandad Nahavandipoor, this is the third revision I am reviewing, with incremental improvements to keep you up to date with the latest version of iOS. For the most part, you can review my previous reviews on this book, for which I consider this book to be a fantastic and essential part of your programming literature toolkit.
It goes through the normal problem–>solution–>discussion process to allow you to quickly identify which topic matches your needs and then explains that topic concisely with an example, rather than go through all the fluff. The fluff is left for the discussion part in case you wanted to know more. But if this isn’t your ideal way of learning, in a non-linear but contextual method, then keep this book as a reference.
