When did you load the Cocos2D templates? Have you heard of anyone successfully loading them under Xcode 4.3x?
I don't know yet…I just read the free sample pages (kindle), and I just bought the full book. The sampler didn't really have me compile anything. I'm hesitantly optimistic, because of some 3 star reviews on amazon. I'll tell u how it is as I read it.

Edit: back to the original topic about the author. This book actually taught me objective C better than any "beginner objective C" book I've read. For example, the standard method syntax "-(void) method:(int)inValue1 parameter2:(int)inValue2" confused me. I didn't know how to interpret it. All books I've read never explained how to read this, and I thought "if I see it more, maybe it'll start to make sense. Nope it never did. Only after this book explained it to me, I understood it. If this guy wrote a cocos2D book, I'd be the first in line. I might come off riding on his ballsack, but I'm grateful the author wrote this book.
