Amazing book to get things done on Android,
This review is from: Android in Practice (Paperback)This is an amazing book in that it has yet to fail me when I've searched for how to do things on Android. All every question is answered with the most succinct code example available so you can use it and then perhaps investigate all options further.
I use it more as a reference to getting things done, that reading it from start to end. This popular book pattern of "recipes" is good, even though some times it is taken too far where it just get ridiculous to begin every topic with a "problem"/"question". This book, however, is on the right side of that fence.
I'd say it is more for the advanced Android developer than the beginner. This was just what I was looking for.
