This is a review of Oreilly's Android Cookbook. A few notes of disclosure: 1. I only read (and therefore review) books that I'm almost certain that I'm going to love. 2. I have every Ian Darwin book and think the guy is a technology God. Yes, I like the book. I think all of the books recommended are good ones, especially Head First Java, 2nd Edition. Thinking in Java, 4th edition is also a great book. I would add "The Java Programming Language" even though it gets very difficult during the second half of the book. Full Review  >

This book has the answers to almost any Android Development problem you can think of. The recipes were collected from the Android community and I think that’s probably why they are so relevant and practical. They also cover writing Android applications for tablets and phones, not just phones as many other books do. Full Review  >
