    This book was a great choice for developers who started developing something on Android. But it's deprecated nowadays.

    Great book. Cover everything you need to know to get started in Android, build an app and prepare yourself for other part of Android that didn't covered by the book.

    Great book. The topic itself is huge, but author managed to cover pretty much every aspect of Android development with sufficient details - you don't get overwhelmed with details you won't memorize but you get the idea about what's available, what you can achieve and how to shape your applications up to do that. The content is clear, code samples are very clear and easy to understand. And the book itself is still up to date (it covers Android 4.x). This book is supposed to fit the needs of any dev Great book.

This book is supposed to fit the needs of any developer who didn't try programming Android yet - I can't confirm it or deny, because I was pretty much just updating myself from Android 2.x development (and I didn't touch that for some time), but it seems to make sense. Really recommended - if you want to get a grip on Android app development, this book will be a great help.

    Typical excellent Wrox teaching and reference book. I've stopped reading about half-way through as it goes into topics I've no interest in yet, no doubt I'll return. The explanation of concepts is bar none, just what a professional programmer wants. I suppose I could learn along online tutorials, but they just don't have the flow and the context that good books have, plus it's useless trying to follow them on your Nexus yet with networks as primitive as they still are.

    Great Android book. One of the best I have read! If you are a programmer who already know the basics (OO, basic design patterns, etc) and you want to start with Android, this book is for you.

    Read the earlier version which is much shorter. Some of the examples are tough to get going but it's worthwhile.

    A decent learning material, however it misses the depths of some critical topics like concurrency.
