If you are a regular user, this book is a waste of time, but if you work on hardware, software or you want to learn the inner mechanics of this operating system, this book will guide you trough the ton of info that nobody tells you about.
I have serious problems to understand the official docs from Apple; when I am able to find what I need of course...and this book resolve both issues. It will guide you trough the various applications running on the system, telling you what they do, then you will get your feet wet working on terminal, getting info about the kernel, Mach and the underlying structure of the OS, where each specific layer is explained.
If you do kernel programming work, this book is a bible. IF you are a beginner, this book will tell you what is going on when you run your app on iOS or OSX, using Xcode, or how to manipulate some inner mechanism of the system.
Do yourself a favor and read this book; it is for Mac/iOS developers, the equivalent of what the K&R book is, for C programmers.
So far it is quite interesting and educational.
Might be somewhat short on some topics.
Overall a must read if you develop software for MAC OS X.
