Oh dear. First 40 pages are the authors patting them selves on the back. Then links to their website. Then helpful things like Google is a search engine! It's a! Use it to search! (I kid you not). Add to the fact that even considering publication delays this book is laughably out of date, the examples DONT WORK, and the 'online bonus chapters' DONT EXISTS, and this is going back to the store. I usually like the Deitel books, but this...this is embarrassing.

Ben scritto, esempi chiari, e un percorso graduale che copre buona parte delle API più comuni, ribadendo i concetti ma senza appesantire la spiegazione, e introducendo ad ogni capitolo la giusta quantità di informazioni.

Decisamente consigliato a chi inizia, e contiene anche informazioni utili a chi non è ancora esperto ma ha già sviluppato qualcosa su Android.

I really like the app driven method, you see how different programming pieces come together in realistic apps. I think I have enough mastery of the subject to work on sun app of my own now and got an idea for another one while reading the book.

Good for programmers who are familiar with Java. Teaching programming through working applications is the best way in my opinion. The book is well written with plenty of references to online sources for further reading.

Manuale molto efficace perchè insegna le basi di Android partendo da delle app concrete, dagli esempi più semplici a quelli più complicati.
Richiede conoscenza di Java.
