    Sams Teach Yourself iPhone Application Development in 24 Hours Reviews


    John Ray's and Sean Johnson's bookSam's Teach Yourself iPhone Application Programming in 24 Hours is without a doubt the best book on the subject that I have read so far. As a high-level instructor myself, it is easy to assume that someone new to a subject can just 'assume' something that the instructor takes for granted. The authors' attention to detail is nothing short of incredible.

    I have very little prior programming experience and having been busting my hump to understand this subject on my own. I have bought every book released on the subject so far and I can assure you that this is the best one for someone new to the subject with no prior experience to go.

    Thanks for a great book. I'll be sure to pick up more of this series on other subjects and recommend them to others!"
