I am learning Obj-C and Cocoa right now and I'm using this book http://www.amazon.com/Cocoa-Programming-Mac-OS-X/dp/02017268...

It's excellent. I also found Apple's documentation quite good (Obj-C 2.0 stuff is great).




The second edition of that book is more relevant:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0321213149/bignerdran...

That being said, the third edition is coming out this spring.

On a completely separate note, I would be careful about relying on Obj-C 2.0. If you want to actually release something in the near future, you won't be able to rely on it if you want to include 10.4 users. And of course, there's the issue of how great garbage collection really is...


This is a great book to start with. After you finish it, this one is also good: http://www.amazon.com/Advanced-Mac-Programming-Core-Unix/dp/...


This is the book I'm currently reading to learn more about Cocoa.

Note that with the release of Leopard, Xcode 3.0 and the new Interface Builder, a lot of the things in this book (such as the diagrams and directions) are no longer relevant and might be hard to follow.

The third edition of the book (which covers all the new things) will be out in the spring, according to the author.
