unfortunately this book gives the Dummies series a bad taste - i gave the series the benefit of the doubt and found the book spending waaaay too many pages on what is essentially one programming example. I have to give kudos to effort to designing the app from start to finish. stick with Beginning iPhone Dev if you've done any serious programming.
Being the complete dummy that I am at this topic, this was a great book to just learn the basics to building and developing an iPhone application. However, one read through is not enough to simply create an amazing app such as Angry Birds, but no dummy would be expecting that. I constantly going back to different sections, trying to understand it slightly better.
No question, I'm a dummy. But with this book and a good bit of poking around on the Apple site, I've managed to get a very basic app up and running on the simulator. There's still lots of work to do if I want to turn it into anything useful, but it's a start!
