A book that tries to do too much by covering the full application lifecycle from concept to delivery.

It offers a useful introduction to some of the newer features in the Android SDK 1.5 such as the camera, mapping and location based services.

The coding examples do assume a high Java knowledge but are poorly executed and lack detail. The discussions on how Android handles major concepts such as threads, handlers, asynctask and file i/o are very weak. JDBC not even mentioned.

I almost wonder if it would have been better if the authors had been eaten by lions in Kenya!

It covers most of the stuff I was after, but is a little out of date. However, for £3.00 it's brilliant value for money
