Could be worse
It definitely got me started with Android, but in many cases it does more to confuse than anything else due to errors and omissions in the book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
In most code examples, the example is missing one or more key parts of the source that prevent it from working as-is. I even found an instance in Chapter 7 where the XML layout file described did not even contain components that the java source file references. Obviously this book was shoved out quickly without much attention to detail.
If you are an accomplished developer who already knows Java very well, you'll like work around those issues quickly. If you're just starting on Java or only know the basics, this book is likely to do more harm than good.
