Product Author Bios
Stephen G. Kochan is author and co-author of Programming in Objective-C 2.0, as well as several bestselling books on the C language, including Programming in C, Programming in ANSI C, and Topics in C Programming. He has also written extensively on Unix, and is author of Exploring the Unix System and Unix Shell Programming. Kochan has been programming Macintosh computers since the introduction of the first Mac in 1984, and wrote Programming C for the Mac for the Apple Press Library.
This value-priced bundle contains both the bestselling book Mac/iPhone development book, Programming in Objective-C 2.0, and a complete video training course on the fundamentals of Objective-C, Programming in Objective-C 2.0 Live Lessons, Part I, with more than 8 hours of video training on DVD from author and trainer Stephen Kochan.
For the thousands of developers who want to develop applications for the Mac OS X and iPhone platforms but need an introduction to the programming language for those platforms, this bundle is the ultimate solution – the equivalent, in one package, of training classes costing hundreds of dollars.
Programming in Objective-C 2.0 LiveLessons covers the essentials of both Objective-C and object-oriented programming, making it ideal for beginners and experienced programmers alike. Expert teacher and trainer Stephen Kochan assumes no previous experience with Objective-C or C and uses a wealth of detailed examples to explain language features such as classes, objects, methods, data types, expressions, inheritance, polymorphism, exception handling, notifications, and preprocessing.

Very solid book on the Objective C language,
This review is from: Programming in Objective-C 2.0 LiveLessons Bundle (Paperback)I really like this book as an introduction into the Objective C language and quite frankly into the world of programming in general. The examples in the book are lucid which to me is the most critical part of any computer science book. The examples are also extended throughout the book which is nice because you have the ability to reuse the programs you create to further expand your understanding of the concepts. The book also does a good job explaining general object-oriented principles such as information hiding, polymorphism, dynamic binding, inheritance, dynamic typing etc. I would definitely recommend this book to either anyone interested in learning Objective-C from the ground floor or anyone looking to get a ground floor look at Object Oriented programming through a specific language. The book is more catered to the former than the later but if you are looking for both than this is certainly the book for you.

Book great, DVD ain't....,
This review is from: Programming in Objective-C 2.0 LiveLessons Bundle (Paperback)Well, this is a mixed review. The book is a great teaching tool and reference. I would
buy the book again in a heartbeat. It methodically goes through an introduction to the
Objective-C language. Its focus is the Apple/iPhone. The section on iPhone programming
is really not worth the time. There are much better books, but everything else is a
The DVD is awful. It mostly power point slides with Mr. Kochan talking about code
examples. The thing is, that it uses almost the same stuff as the book. At times I
felt as though it was an unabridged audio book.
Conclusion... I really liked the book, but the DVD wasn't worth the extra $20 dollars.
DVD=1 or 2

Only one major flaw...,
This review is from: Programming in Objective-C 2.0 LiveLessons Bundle (Paperback)I really like this bundle. Yes, as some reviewers have pointed out there are some parts that seem amateurish. It looks like it was filmed in the author's bedroom. Not much production flash. But who the heck cares? If you want to learn how to program in Objective C 2.0, and that is all you care about, then I suggest you get this bundle.
My only warning is that the video DVD that comes with it is aptly named "PART ONE" because it only covers half of the book. I actually did not have a problem with this because I assumed if I liked the DVD I would be given the opportunity to purchase Part Two. NOPE. There is NO PART TWO. So if you like Part One you are out of luck. You have been warned.
