    To the iOS Dev Community:

    Hey everyone.

    My name is Brad Yale. Without beating around the bush, I work for Pearson Education on their tech side as a community specialist representing a good portion of their programming (android, iOS, Windows, game dev etc.) titles/content.

    Currently I am looking for interested iOS dev's to peer review Paul J. Deitel, Harvey M. Deitel and Abbey Deitels "iOS 8 for Programmers: An App-Driven Approach with Swift, 3rd Edition" for Amazon.

    The InformIT product page is here:

    http://www.informit.com/store/ios-8-for-programmers-an-app-driven-approach-with-swift-9780133965261

    The Amazon product page is here:

    http://www.amazon.com/iOS-Programmers-App-Driven-Approach-Developer/dp/0133965260/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1417535761&sr=8-1&keywords=0133965260

    How the Program Works:

    I would send the title to you for free (either soft cover or e-pub) and all I would ask in return is:

    A truthful Amazon review of the title within 45 - 60 days of receipt.

    A note on reviews:

    We want the reviews to be honest and comprehensive. If you like the content, cool. If you don't like the content, also cool.

    We are looking for honest reviews of content which offers a comprehensive breakdown/critique (ex. this section was great however to make the title better, it could elaborate on...".

    The basic idea here is we want the content to stand on its own two feet so consumers can continue learning and authors can produce better versions. In no way shape or form will I, or anyone from Pearson, try to influence your content review. Honesty is what matters.

    Additionally, I would love the following however it would be your choice:

    Social - Some tweets, G+, Linkedin, Reddit etc. postings on the title of selection with a link pointing back to the title product page

    Blog - A blog post on the title of selection with a link pointing back to the title product page

    If this is something you would be interested in, feel free to email me at brad.yale@pearson.com.

    Respectfully,

    Brad Yale
