Swift Programming Books

Someone emailed me recently asking for a list of Swift Programming Books. While I have not read all of these books, they have come up for me a few times, and I know they’re from good Swift developers. So here is the list (some might be affiliate links):


  • The Swift Programming Language – FREE by Apple. I have read the first version, and it’s honestly probably all you need to get started with Swift.


  • Pro Design Patterns in Swift – $34.99 by Adam Freeman. Someone pointed it out on Twitter. Note that the author is well-published in many programming languages, so he doesn’t sound like specifically a Swift expert (see book reviews).


  • Parsing JSON in Swift – $19.00 by @jtbrown. Haven’t had a chance to look at it yet, but it does have a money back guarantee if you don’t like it.

I’m sure I’m missing some books, so if you think of more, let me know in the comments or on twitter!
