This book seems to be a fairly comprehensive overview of Android programming. It's a good resource for learning how to code specific functions. Besides the mandatory first beginner chapters, this is a reference book. Dive in and start reading on the topics that interest you. I like the author's writing style and the examples are easy to follow, but be aware that books of this type are not meant to provide full solutions to specific problems. But this book will educate you and point you in the right direction with some examples. I look forward to using this book more as I get deeper into various Android topics.
