New OS X books from O'Reilly

Learning Unix for Mac OS X
by Dave Taylor & Jerry Peek
"Learning Unix for Mac OS X" is a concise introduction to Unix on Mac
OS X for Macintosh users who want to tap the power of Unix. The book
shows how to use the Terminal application, navigate the command line,
and explore many useful, time-tested Unix applications.

Building Cocoa Applications: A Step-by-Step Guide
by Simson Garfinkel & Michael K. Mahoney
"Building Cocoa Applications" takes a step-by-step approach to teaching
developers how to build real graphics applications using Cocoa. The
book starts by showing the basics of an application in one chapter and
then layering additional functionality onto that application in
subsequent chapters. By the end of the book, readers who have built
applications as they have read will have a solid understanding of what
it really means to develop complete and incrementally more complex
Cocoa applications.
