    8. Put an end to collecting information about your decision. Avoid thinking that with just a little more time and information, you'll be able to make the one perfect decision. Remember that no decision is perfect and that all choices are made in a condition of some uncertainty.​
    Stop trying to make a perfect decision. Pick any one of the books. Start working. When you get stuck, you have 3 alternatives ready and waiting.

    i read stephen kochan's programming in objective c 2.0

    took me 3-4 weeks to get threw it, i went from knowing nothing to knowing how to make a graphical program using interface builder

    this book is the best for someone who wants to learn from scratch

    the author assumes u don't kno a single thing about programming

    same, I have had some programming before but never really stuck with any languages so it was all bits and pieces. Still working through the Kochan book but that is just due to limited time.

    Lately I have been watching these videos:

    For me it helps to see it come together visually and I can watch the movies on my iphone so I can do it without being near my computer.
