The IOS 5 Developer's Cookbook: Core Concepts and Essential Recipes for IOS Programmers (Developer's Library)by Erica Sadun
Synopses & Reviews
It has come to our attention that problems occurred during the production process of The iOS 5 Developer's Cookbook. The scope of the error is widespread. Our processing tools stripped out bits of code from listings and examples in the book. Since the electronic books are generated from the files we send to the printer, all eBook versions (including Kindle, EPUB, and PDF) were also affected.
Please rest assured that the content is up to Erica Sadun's exceptional standards. We have resolved the production issues internally. We will be reprinting and producing new eBook versions of The iOS 5 Developer's Cookbook this week. The problems we encountered do not affect the sample code that Erica hosts on her GitHub repository; this is a print/eBook-only issue.
While we take every measure to avoid problems such as this, sometimes these things do happen. On behalf of Erica, and from all of Pearson, we regret this unfortunate incident. We assure you that we take this very seriously and that we have taken every measure to ensure this won't happen again.
Very soon, we will provide customers who have purchased the current printing with information on identifying whether your book was affected. We will explain how to obtain a replacement. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and thank you for your patience while we prepare the reprint and new eBook editions.
