Hillegass' book is about the best intro I've seen, and you can get a  
discount through the TUG store; I also used Garfinkel and Mahoney,  
but that's a bit dated now.  Depending on what you want to do, you  
could always get involved in BibDesk and start hassling the other  
developers with questions on the mailing list (which was my strategy ;).

A couple of the more useful web resources are http:// 
www.cocoabuilder.com/ and http://www.cocoadev.com/.  If you already  
know C, Objective-C is trivially easy to learn, and the Cocoa  
frameworks make programming (mostly) fun.
