Building iPhone Apps is really great because of two key features - Great 'show me' style of explaining and shows how to build Web Apps. Plus, also has uses core web technologies making it one of our top recommendations.
One concern is that some of the coding examples appear to be wong, but remember these are for illustration purposes so it will still guide you in the right direction.
What we love about this book in particular is that several readers said they actually created their own iPhone prototype web app to manage application servers after reading this book. So this proves you can put the practical knowledge to use immediately and start developing your app in a few days or over a weekend.
