Woollie Farm: My Four-legged Family by Sharron J. Bowman
When it became necessary to take a break from her demanding and stressful job Sharron found that what had been an interest now became a way of life.

Android Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide (Big&hellip by Brian Hardy

If you are fed up of doing Android tutorials (e.g. on Youtube) that never work and are so buggy that they end up wasting hours of time then look no further - this is the book for you.

A truly excellent approach and an excellent book. I take my hat off to BigNerdRanch.
