Jumping jacks

I had high hopes for this book. Myself being new to Xcode thought that this would be a good start.
The author jumps around a lot, also steps are NOT laid out. I don't know if I should be writing in code or just reading an example.

I would stay away from this if you are a beginner. If you know a little of Xcode and objective c then it might be ok.

Wish I could return it or even burn it.
