"extremely well written and easy to follow" --GoogleAndBlog.com (Dec 8, 2008)
"It's a really good book for beginners; it sure beats reading the Google Android SDK docs and trying to make some sense of them...It was enjoyable reading this book, and all the examples are concise and to the point. The author does a great job conveying convoluted concepts simply, and that's the true value of this book, especially to a beginner."

Regardless, I found this book helpful, and am glad I purchased it. I would definitely recommend it. A few caveats: I would prefer a more detailed index section, but was able to find what I needed regardless. Furthermore, this is not an instructional on JAVA. You will need a thorough introduction to JAVA to succeed in App development on Android.
This book has more than paid for itself in the time I've saved looking for answers online. I can't praise it enough. Not to mention the fact that I've already downloaded the early release of the Advanced Android book as well!
Out of desperation I bought this book and have found its coverage to be much much more detailed and helpful than either the online docs or my first Android book.
I think for people who really want to dig below the surface and do more than just simple toy examples, some additional help is needed and this book seems perfect.
