This book is written in such as way that you can skip one, two or several chapters if you want to - all the information in this book can be found on the android tutorials online BUT this is laid out so much more nicely and the author is forever providing in depth explanations of what's happening, what you need to do and why. Full of mini projects to follow along with to help with understanding. 10/10, great book, would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a firm grasp on android development.

Just two words...clarity and depth (was that three?). A perfect introduction to this exciting technology. Some knowledge of Java required.

This is quite possibly an excellent book, but it is seriously out-of-date. It includes examples and activities for the Android Development Kit (ADK) but Google have now switched to Android Studio for all Android development. This is not a trivial change! As a quick example, the book talks about setting up paths to utilities like adb.exe (on Windows) but I can't find this on my PC after installing Android Studio. So sorry, not a good purchase at the moment although it looks excellent in every other respect.

"If you have been using Eclipse with ADT, be aware that Android Studio is now the official IDE for Android, so you should migrate to Android Studio" - https://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

I purchased this book as i needed to port an app from the Apple IOS platform to the Android platform.
This book contained all i needed to get to grips with Eclipse and get coding quickly.
It covers all the basics (although it's worth having a basic knowledge of Java before hand) and has lots of example apps to work from.
A good book for beginners who are looking to get into Android programming.

I'm only post 4*s because I'm just starting but I would like to link to this post about setting up Android AVDs

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1554099/why-is-the-android-emulator-so-slow

If you follow these instructions then your AVDs will start before you retire, or the next ice age, or whichever comes first ;-)
