No official description is available; here are some comments from purchasers:

This book is a bit on the pricey side, but it delivers the goods more than many other expensive book in my bookshelf. I own hundreds of programming books (as well as have written several of them). Of them all there is only a handful that I consider trully excellent. This is one of them.

This book covers every possible topic (both OS X specific and UNIX) that you could possibly think of, but the coverage is not lightweight. It is heavy duty information delivered at its best. Fine code examples, and fine discussion, well worth the price.

If Amazon had a ten star rating, this book would get it. - GET IT!

---------
If you're a programmer and you want to learn more about Mac OS X and its Unix underpinnings, you must have this book. The information in here is not available anywhere else, including in Apple's documentation. The authors have done a remarkable job in ferreting out cool stuff, such as how the memory model works, programming with sockets, using GDB, multithreading, and a zillion more nifty topics. This is a remarkable book.
