The book certainly is a good refresher on networking basics tcp/ip udp, posix and how it fits in with osx and ios. There is loads plenty of nice beginner stuff like building echo servers and constructing ping packets so readers with no networking knowledge at all can be broken in gently.

There is a comprehensive chapter on Libnet that starts with a refresher on network layers and steadily builds in complexity, again making it suitable for all skill levels. It's hard to exaggerate the thrill of se

I was one of the technical reviewers of this book. It is a great handy cookbook for everyone from newbie to advanced iOS and OSX developers who want to create applications with networking functionalities, from using RESTful web APIs to advanced socket programming and persistent connections.

This book covers many major networking libraries. some from original iOS/OSX SDKs, and also many great 3rd. party libraries you find out there.

One of the greatest advantages of this book is it's great examples

This is an excellent book to have for all the iOS and OS X Enterprise and AppStore developers. The author has covered almost everything related to network programming for iOS and OS X.

He has explained the concepts crisp and clear with good examples. BSD socket libraries , high level and low level networking , Bonjour , AFNetworking are some of the concepts that the author covers which comes very handy while programming.

A good book to have.

The author starts with the BSD socket library to build up to Apple's CFNetworking and continues on to Apple's high level networking API such NSXMLParser, NSURL and NSData.

The book covers open source libraries as well such as AFNetworking, MKNetworkKit,
libnet and Libpcap, thus providing the reader with a full arsenal of networking
knowledge for Mac OS X and iOS.

The recipes included were well written and extensive. My favorites are the Peer to Peer Bluetooth and Bonjour recipes. You can choose to r

I just read this book for iOS and OS X programming i.e "iOS and OS X network programming cookbook".

I have always liked cookbooks and this one is not an exception. Author has covered all the topics with practical examples. I have gone through few iOS books and this one is best so far.
All in all, this is a cookbook I'm happy to have added to my collection.

Here is the packtpub library link for the book

This book is great, very useful. It talks about everything about networking from the low level (function in C) to top level with popular framework as AFNetworking. Specially great for clarifying concepts. The example code is very useful to bring ideas to the land.
