Finally getting the hang of Objective-C...

... thanks to a gold mine of a book I bought called Objective-C for Java Programmers. This book has allowed me to advance my knowledge and finally get past the stumbling block of Objective-C's syntax. Even though I've only read the first chapter (the introduction) thus far, it has already been quite enlightening.

Nice one. My only warning is not full into the trap of thinking of Objective-C as just Java with "silly" syntax. They have a different heritage and have some fundamentally different philosophies, particularly in the libraries. You will need to shift your thinking, but not too much.
