    For the both of you. . .
    I think you both need to go back and read my posts. PERIOD. Pay attention to what I said CLOSELY. I AM NOT telling anyone here what to and what not to download. I AM NOT passing authority on what to do to anyone. All of you people are completely, missing my point. I am simply saying that this lady deserves to be paid for the hard work that she put into this community. I have already bought it and I am sure many many more will as well.
    I do not see why you would not want to help this lady out when she has done so much for the iPhone community. It is cheap. If you are too cheap to fork over $25.27, then might want to consider thinking about mowing your neighbors lawn, ask mommy for some more milk money or go beat up the kid next door and take his milk money because you sure do seem to need the money more than she does.

    I am done talking about this. You can reply all you want however, I will not dignify you with a response because it just simply isn't worth it. It's like talking to a brick wall.

    How sad. You fail morally and mentally. It's very clear to me that you only took the moral high ground because the creator of this book is a member of the female sex. I find it sadly amusing that people on the Internet change their behaviour in respect to a person that they don't, and never will, know personally. I Belize treating someone differently based on their sex is called sexism. Unlucky. In all seriousness, I can't imagine that comment about bittorrent having even registered on your brain if the author was male. And as for every reply you wrote, they all pertained to your original post but you failed to notice that your original post just backed everyone elses post up. You do not have the right to discern what act of piracy would be morally right, so don't insult others. Sorry to make such an irrelevant post, but I do despise hypocrites.

    I dont know who you are talking to, but I said to purchase the book because of all that Erica has done to help the iphone community. She is very helpful and giving. It has nothing to do with her being a woman. She is an intellectual person and wrote very good articles at TUAW.

    I have read 32 pages of the book so far and it is really good. She is very descriptive on the SDK. I will let you know about the rest as I progress through the book

    If there's a single damn post that ISN'T relevant to the thread (the book) after this post I will delete it, give you an infraction, and get you one step closer to ban heaven. Drop the stupid "pirating is good/bad/moral/killed-my-dog" crap.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    Let us know if it is helpful for people who are not programmers! Also, let us know if you have a background in developing/programming in general. I would like to get this to read through it and learn about the SDK and how to develop an app.

    Thank you!

    I have minimal programming experience with C. I have done mostly web programming, but I am in the process of learning C. She is very down to earth and descriptive in the book. I cant really say you will need to know C programming before you can read this book because I have not gotten that far yet in the book yet, but if you do not know any C or fundamentals of programming you will be a little lost with some of it so far. However she is good about an in depth explanation of most things. But so far she talks about the classes and methods and what they do, Model View Controller, the structure of an application and how it is related to xcode, and what files are contained in an app and what each of them do. Like I said, I have a lot more to read but that is what I have so far. I will let you know on the rest as I get farther into it. I hope to have it finished by Sunday but I have a lot going on this weekend.

    FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO'VE NEVER CODED ANY PROGRAMMING AT ALL, READ THIS FIRST:

    Become an XCoder (free PDF) - BecomeAnXcoder | CocoaLab

    it introduces the 100% virgin noob to the general objective-c language. really good starting point for the uninitiated.




    edit:

    I just preordered the book, but I don't see where I can get the pdf... can someone help me out? I don't know what I did wrong...

    Probably not. Most books in this category assume you already know some other high-level OO language such as C++,C# or JAVA. If you've never written code before it would be better to start with a basic book on Objective-C development first before embarking on this book.

    well, shoot... looks like i bought the wrong thing. the link on the first post goes to the physical book, so i figured you'd just get a link to the pdf when you preorder the actual thing...

    would it be out of line for me to ask someone to send me the pdf if i show my reciept for the physical book?

    Maybe check with InformIT. Maybe they will let you exchange your purchase from the actual book to the PDF. The PDF is a bit cheaper.
    Here is the link for the PDF on that site: InformIT: iPhone Developer's Cookbook, The: Building Applications with the iPhone SDK - $25.59
