I especially like the fact that it's not just all about coding and syntax. You'll learn a bit about UML diagrams and how to organize your code better. It does a pretty good job of teaching you how to think before you write code.
You may think that experts in this field won't find this book interesting, but Swift 2 is a very new language that should be interesting for any programmers as it has exponential growth for mobile platforms. Also, it is an attractive proposal for developers to learn this new language in order to review important topics from OOP.
If I really have to point out what this book does not cover it is the fact that you will not learn much of the multiplatform potential of Swift 2 and the use of GUI. However, these are actually topics for a more advance book which can be covered once you already know how to code in Swift 2.
A nice book for all swift lovers!!!
