Great content. Good review of XCode 4 and Objective-C. Very poor production value. Frequent typos made it through the editing process. Biggest complaint is that the figures are illegible. The text frequently refers to the figures, but they are printed grayscale with very little contrast. The author was ill-served by the publisher.
