So, I am actually only half way through the book. Because I am doing every single project/code that is in the book. But I am definitely at the point where I can write a fair and accurate review of the book.

I really like(d) this book. I think it explains the pieces of iPhone SDK development, that every newbie needs to learn, in a clear and articulate manner. The examples/projects really help you learn how to develop iPhone apps. Compared to other iPhone books I am reading, this book really cleared things up for me, that the other books don't explain as well as this book does.

The only negative I have about this and the other iPhone books that I have read is that they take many of the classes that you might need to use together, as seperate cases and you will get stuck figuring out how to say combine a NavigationView, TabBarView, and TableView all together.

But for starting out, and even if you have no experience with objective-c, this book is my favorite so far.
I agree. Here's the link:
