So far it's really helpful. It's the second iOS book I got. The first one jumped way to fast into the code with little or no real explanation. This book begins explaining the basics and makes consistent notes about common pitfalls.

I liked the overview of the role of the view controllers and the summary of the life-cycle... clear and succinct. The underlying example of his Latin flashcards app is not for me a template for how to best deal with the case of n peer views in an app, as it would lead to some avoidable complications.

The overview of the language however is really just that... a VERY light summary. Someone serious about objective-c would have to read something else to supplement it.

Great book to read *after* you've got a basic understanding of iOS. Learned a lot from this one, and it's fun/light to read.
