The paper in the book is of high quality and the images are in color. I did not think much of this until I started another Android book and found nothing but black and white images and lesser quality paper that my highlighter bleeds through.
I have some quibbles with the programming style, such as the embedding of magic numbers, but these are minor. Potential buyers should be aware that this is not a complete guide to Android. For example, there is very little about concurrency, with no mention of AsyncTask, for example. Still, I would recommend it as a very reasonably priced, well written, first book on Android.
Update: I recommended this book to students when teaching an upper-division college course on mobile application development. Students found it so valuable that they told me I should make it required the next time I teach the course. I've never been told that about any other book.
This book is great! Not only will it help you develop an application, it will walk you through it but not hold your hand all the way. This is a teaching book with good writing, good information and not only tells you how, but also why.
I am so glad I got this book!
Kudos to Ed Burnette!!! Thanks Ed. I am really enjoying learning through your style.
Get this book if you want to learn Android programming. If you have an Android device or not, you can start programming Android right away. Ed shows you how ... for free. All you need is a computer (PC, Linux or MAC). It does not have to be fast or powerful.
