An excellent book for beginners with a few provisos. There are exercises at the end of each chapter. They can be quite advanced and the answers aren't included in the book and don't appear to be on the website - people are frequently asking for them but the author never replies to their questions. Webinairs are available but since the book was issued 2011 and readers are worldwide these may not be the best option.

The book is generally clear and typos can be deciphered. I do feel like you need to

Letto a spizzichi, a tempo perso, principalmente perché non ho un Mac per testare sul campo. Mi è sembrato approfondito al punto giusto (cioé nè troppo, nè troppo poco) per un libro introduttivo al solo linguaggio, quindi niente Cocoa e particolarità di Mac OSX o di iOS. Forse un po' scarso il capitolo sul debugging, e praticamente solo una "brochure pubblicitaria" quello su Preferences e Core Data.

Overall it wasn't a terrible book. It has a bunch of typos which are listed on the website (which I learned of after finishing the book) and at times it was hard to follow why something was being done.
