Most of the books I scanned, even the “Dummies” series, assumed a basic knowledge of computer programming even for iOS beginners. What I like about Kevin’s writing is that he doesn’t make any assumptions – he just takes you there – step by step. - Lorraine Akemann, moms with apps
This second book in the series from Kevin McNeish, winner of the Publishing Innovation Award, highly acclaimed iOS trainer and conference speaker, and award-winning App Developer, is specifically designed to teach non-programmers Objective-C; the language used to create Apps for the iPhone and iPad. This book series assumes you know nothing about programming.
Book 2: Flying with Objective-C builds on what you learned in Book 1: Diving In. In the first two chapters, the author helps you understand basic concepts, such as "what is a class?" and "what is an object?" You then learn how to pass messages to objects, and then create your own custom classes.
As you go through the book, concepts become more advanced until you reach the final chapters on Advanced-Objective-C and Advanced Messaging. Each concept is accompanied by step-by-step instructions to build an App that shows the real-world use of Objective-C programming features. This is a tremendous aid in helping non-programmers grasp even more advanced concepts.
The information in this book is up to date with the latest iOS technologies and the latest version of Xcode!
Includes Step-by-Step Instructional Videos!
Each exercise in this book has a corresponding movie that demonstrates how to perform the exercise. After trying to solve the exercise on your own, just tap the movie to watch the exercise solved for you in high quality video and narrative!

Updated book cover only
Simply the Best way for Beginners to Learn Objective-C
I'm a hardware / IT guy not a developer but I've always wanted to code my own projects. Fresh off of creating my first prototype application in record time from Book 1 I delved into Book 2. While this book covers the deeper topic of Objective C it does so with the same simple easy to understand style of the first book. Simply no better book exists for a beginner to learn to program in Objective C.
Really Great Beginner's Objective-C Book!
I have been studying Objective-C now for a while and I have many books on the subject, but none go into such details as this book does, in explaining difficult concepts in simple terms … and there are examples & videos to further help. This is a great beginners book on Objective-C that can be used later as a reference to go back to when studying the more advanced subjects. We are really lucky that the author took the time and effort to develop this series of easy to understand books!
Great Objective-C book for beginners
Contains great examples and easy to understand writing style. Fully explains each topic in concise & coherent way without confusing or leaving gaps for the reader to fill in on their own. Great understanding of what a beginner needs to know, along with giving additional background information to help their learning process. He doesn't lose focus of the non-programmer's perspective and doesn't assume they have knowledge of other OO languages.
