I had the pleasure of being the TR (Technical Reviewer) on a book about iPhone Accessory Design by Ken Maskrey.

(I’m sure the brain trust at Apress will change the title – maybe.) When I was first asked about the book by Clay Andres of Apress I was a little skeptical.  Apple has the “Made for iPod Works with IPhone” program pretty locked down with NDA’s.
