Comments about oreilly Building Applications for the Mac App Store:

It was pretty much a technical, straightforward read on how to package and submit an app to the Mac App Store. I'm pretty sure a serious developer could have searched for this information online and obtained it for free. Hence, my average rating.

However, I would have liked to read a little bit about the marketing aspects behind submitting an app to the Mac App Store, for example. (e.g, copy text, what kind of screenshots, how to price them...) I would also have liked to read about any potential pitfalls associated with the app submission process and how to deal with them. Look elsewhere for this kind of info.
