Great for intermediate to advanced developers!
This book is not for beginners. It assumes you already know how to develop iOS apps. It is for developers who want to take their understanding of Objective-C and Cocoa Touch to the next level, or for those who just want a solid introduction to the new things in iOS 6.
I really like the explanations this book provides. Rather than being a collection of recipes (not to knock the books that are -- Erica Sadun's books are top notch in that regard), this book gives more of an explanation of the how and why things work.
The book really solidified some parts of iOS development that weren't entirely clear to me before, and gave me a great kickstart into the new iOS 6 technologies! I'd recommend it to any app developer that already knows the basics and wants to further their knowledge of their craft!
