Really learning ObjC

So I've been thinking about really learning ObjC recently.  I mean, I know how to read the code in most programs, but I wouldn't have a clue if someone were to ask me do write code.  I can do C pretty well for an Engineer but I'm oblivious to some of the language's functionality, mainly the O.O.ness!  I've read all the material available online, but most of it doesn't go as in-depth as I'd like, and other go way too in-depth for my level.  Since I learned most of what I know about C from "Programming in C" I thought I'd invest on the book "Programming in Objective C".  I was wondering what is the general consensus about this book?  Amazon also recommends "Cocoa Programming for MacOS X", how's that book?  I know there's some stuff on it on the main page, but I'd like to know if it's useful for GNUstep.  I don't have a Mac, so I'd have to do the examples and exercises in GNUstep!
Both books have fairly high ratings, and I know from experience Kochan is a great instructor (why I decided on "Programming with Objective C")!  Is this a pair of books you guys would recommend for someone coming into GNUstep with only procedural languages experience (I only really know Pascal, C and MATLAB)?
