I liked this book because it starts with no assumptions!

Heather: While this wasn't the best help book for me, it's got a lot to offer to users who aren't familiar with the Android interface. If you're looking at getting some sort of device that runs on any of the Android operating systems I highly recommend checking this book out.
I don't think this book is a good choice for people with any experience with information processing equipment, i.e. almost anyone. It's far too simple and it seeks to explain ideas that have already permeated the culture. It might have been useful five or six years ago.
