Android Development Quick-Start Guide
on 19 December 2012
To be fair, it "does what it says on the tin"..
It is a quickstart guide and gives a fairly clear overview of getting started in Android development.. I read it in half an hour..
It is a little out of date in a couple of places (talking about Android Market rather than Google Play for example) and Android has moved on but the basics are the basics and it works at that level.. It also assumes you have a little programming/Java experience..
There are other books about getting started in Android development that go a lot further and are possibly better if you're just starting out as they'll help you more..
