...I am not sure what book to read.

I came up with the following:

Programming in Objective-C 2.0 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0321566157/ref=s9_simh_gw_p14_d0_i2?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=062C1Q9H3BRKYDMMYCPX&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938631&pf_rd_i=507846)

vs

Learn Objective-C on the Mac (http://www.amazon.com/Learn-Objective-ndash-Mac/dp/1430218150/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1287873168&sr=8-1)

My programming experience is fairly strict as I just only know a little C.

I read a little over the half of Learn C on the Mac (http://www.amazon.com/Learn-C-Mac-Dave-Mark/dp/1430218096/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1287873227&sr=1-1) which I found great and gave me a little push inside the world of programming. I read until the "Chapter 7: Pointers and Parameters".

Now I am not sure what to do, which book to take?

I have read a little in Programming in Objective-C 2.0 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0321566157/ref=s9_simh_gw_p14_d0_i2?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=062C1Q9H3BRKYDMMYCPX&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938631&pf_rd_i=507846) (that is only Chapter 2, "The @implementation Section"), but I don't get 25% of what he is talking about. What's the definition of a method, class, instance etc. Will this come at a later point if I continue to read it?

The example he gives is not at all logical for me, here it is:

The "Kinda C" Version (which I understand 100%) (http://pastebin.com/BhhswGSr)

The "Objective-C" Version (which I understand 10%) (http://pastebin.com/jfMXVe22)

What will you recommend for me to read, keeping in mind my programming skills is limited and only know a little C.

Not sure if this was enough information, so please tell me if I should add anything :)

Thank you in advance.
