Very good for learning basics of Android
I really wanted to like this book more - at times the information is really good, like the "working in the background" section. However most of the book feels like bits and pieces were cut and pasted into place. Thus author seems to repeat himself often, especially early on. What's worse, the repetition doesn't reinforce any major points of the platform either. I'm left guessing that the book was rushed to print before it was fully edited.

An excellent set of information, but not well organized for experienced programmer and not clear enough for a beginner. If you are new to Android AND Java, you are better served with a Java Programming book first. This is also for Android 1.x and is now supplanted by version 2.X
good so far, only 1/4 of the way into it
This is THE book for programming for Android.
