I am interested in buying a book that covers "Core Data" topic. The best books I have found are:

1) Patrick Alessi - Professional iOS Database Application Programming (

2) Marcus S. Zarra - Core Data: Data Storage and Management for iOS, OS X, and iCloud (

My dilemma is that most people say that Marcus Zarra's book is "the Core Data book", but I saw that half of the book is dedicated to Core Data on Mac OS, which I am not interested in. On the other hand, Patrick Alessi's book seems to be very complete (covers XML, instruments and more stuff...).

Can someone suggest which one is better or would choose in my place? I really need you help.

Thank you very much!

Believe it or not, I bought lots of iOS books from online. But in the end, I found all the topics in the book are mentioned in the apple website and apple engineers explain it very well.

If GOD give me a chance to go back, I would spend those money for my dog! Don't tell me you don't know this
