What I did deduct stars for is the fact that there are errors in this book that will result in your code not running. If it had not been for the author putting code up on their GitHub page, it would have been a real headache! I understand there's a new edition coming out in summer of 2017, so I would recommend anyone wanting to purchase it hold out for the new version, and hopefully the errors will have been fixed!
Would love to know if anyone knows how to make the kindle reader continuously scroll through pages of a chapter instead of turning pages where code segments get interrupted.
If you're interested in Android development and have a basic understanding of Java then this book is a great place to start!
