Want to write iOS apps or desktop Mac applications? This introduction to programming and the Objective-C language is your first step on the journey from someone who uses apps to someone who writes them.
Based on Big Nerd Ranch's popular Objective-C Bootcamp, Objective-C Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide covers C, Objective-C, and the common programming idioms that enable developers to make the most of Apple technologies. Compatible with Xcode 5, iOS 7, and OS X Mavericks (10.9), this guide features short chapters and an engaging style to keep you motivated and moving forward. At the same time, it encourages you to think critically as a programmer.

Finally I get this ebook, thanks for all these Objective-C Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide (2nd Edition) (Big Nerd Ranch Guides) I can get now!
I was suspicious at first when I got redirected to the membership site. Now I'm really excited I found this online library....many thanks Kisses
I did not think that this would work, my best friend showed me this website, and it does! I get my most wanted eBook
I found out about Playster in the New York times and I'm very happy about it: “One of the newest contenders in the crowded field, a company based in Montreal called Playster, offers music, games, TV shows, movies and e-books through its service. Playster recently struck a deal with HarperCollins to include 14,000 backlist books in its service.”
My friends are so mad that they do not know how I have all the high quality ebook which they do not!
I stumbled upon Playster 2 months ago. I've upgraded to a premium membership already. The platform now carries audiobooks from: Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, HarperCollins UK, Recorded Books, Tantor, and Highbridge. HarperCollins US titles are already in the library. Great service.
so many fake sites. this is the first one which worked! Many thanks
wtffff i do not understand this!

Read This Book if you actually want to UNDERSTAND Objective-C
By Dominique Flannery
I have attempted to read probably close to 100 computer books on all sorts of languages and topics, none of them compare to how well this one is written. I'm currently only 37% through this book, but loving it. I've attempted to learn Objective-C a number of times over the past couple of years, mainly just to know it, but also in hopes of diving into IOS development. I've tried to read other books as well as videos on Lynda.com and pluralsite.com. I'm often left so confused on why I'm typing something and the book/video tells me not to worry about understanding it right now, I'll eventually understand. With this book, when it says not to worry about something for the time being, it ends up covering it as soon as I need to know it and in a way that I can understand.
As I've been reading this book, I've felt that I should actually take the time to write a review, but thought I'd wait until I was finished, just in case I actually found a typo in a code sample, I haven't yet. However I'm currently reading chapter 19 that covers properties and felt compelled to write the review right now. In previous books/videos, they've talked about properties, I had no idea what was all going on with them and felt they must not be very important based on the ways they'd been presented. In chapter 18, Aaron teaches you about instance variables, getters and setters. You end up declaring them in the header and implementing them in the .m file and using them in the main() function. He teaches you about recommended naming of these variables and methods and then in chapter 19 shows you that declaring a property takes care of creating instance variables, header declarations and implementations of the getters and setters. I now actually understand what @property does in a header file.
This is the first book I've read by Aaron Hillegass and the Big Nerd Ranch, but I plan on reading the rest of them. I can't say enough good stuff about this book and author.

OK, but not as amazing as the reviews seem to indicate
By F. Hamilton
I bought this based on all the great reviews - I expected a GREAT book. And since it was the 2nd, revised edition, any rough spots or areas that needed more explanation from the 1st edition would be taken care of. And since there's a BNR forum dedicated to this book by the book's publisher, surely any errors found in the book would be documented there, as well as anything that changed with the newer version of X-code.
But I was pretty disappointed. There are gaps where the book seems to assume you know something it never told you. You log into the forum and there are other users just as confused. But there's no "official" answer from the publisher or the author to settle it. Many of the examples have changed slightly with Xcode 6 - I would have expected there to be a (sticky) errata in the forum updating that, but there's not. There are several knowledgeable forum members who provide a lot of help with most of the issues that arise, but I expected something more official.
To be fair, this book has a really big goal - to try to teach Objective C to people that don't even know C. So I knew there would be areas where coverage would be light and I'd need to supplement with other sources (Stack Overflow, wikis, Apple's documentation, etc.). But there are sections that seem to be less clear/more frustrating than they could have been.

Informative but discrepancies from current version of XCode
By Tiki Marsala
I have done most of the chapters in the book now. For the most part it is well written and I like the structure and flow of the book. I would have given it four stars had there not been errors in the book and sections where the SDK and the book just don't agree anymore. I understand that Xcode and the SDK can change at anytime, but its really really frustrating for someone learning the language and development environment to not be able to get the examples to work by following the books instructions. I have found work arounds for most of the discrepancies, but chapter 32 where you write your first Cocoa Application is completely different from what seems to be possible in Xcode. I have a computer science degree and excellent grades and its been a struggle when the code differs from the book. I can only imagine how difficult it would be for people who never programmed before. That said, I haven't found a better alternative in book form. I will probably try the Stanford YouTube videos and maybe take a class to supplement this.
