Well Hello

I have just had a look at FAQs sticky and some older posts but could not really find i definitive answer. I am totally new to any sort of programming, never touched it before but would like to as a hobby and to see how it progresses. I have a few ideas for an iPhone app i would like to develop. I bought iPhone Application for Dummies by Neal Goldstein and Tony Bove but as i have hit the Objective C section its got a little heavy and exposed my lack of any knowledge in the area. So. Can anyone recommend a good book to give an absolute beginner a start in Objective C for iPhone Application development?

Thanks in advance!!

It's not a bad book and Gary Bennet actually gives courses that support the book. Check out the courses at xcelme.com (http://www.xcelme.com/).
