Pong!

I found some real gems in this book and love the example of creating the old school game of Pong in only 20 lines of code. It really illustrates how to keep things simple. The book also covers how to market your game which is important these days given how many apps are in the store. The foreword is by Steve Wozniak was a surprise because its not listed in the product description.
