Hi, might be a stupid question. I would like to buy and use this book but I do not have a Mac. Are there any Mac simulators that I can use to work with this book.

Alas, there are no Mac OS X simulators. It is possible to run Mac OS X in a virtual machine, though. The VMWare Fusion for Mac does this automatically as long as you have an installation disk image of OS X. I don’t believe that the Windows version of VMWare does this for you automatically but doing a quick Google search for “running mac osx on vmware windows” showed me some results that might be worth exploring.

All that said, I don’t recommend going this route. You’ll have a much better experience learning iOS development if you get a Mac.
