If you are questioning why this book? So the answer is other books have content but as beginner this book is pretty descent, wording and terminology is quite understandable for a Java student/developer who have basic knowledge of it, also this book is updated from previous edition and only few other books are providing support for latest android version like Android 7.0. I would suggest to buy this book, worth it, Thank you Amazon and Big neard Ranch Team for making this excellent book.
Extra: As I searched on Internet this book is at first position and also if you know Big neard Ranch is a compony which trains developers worldwide, for more info you can visit their website

I will come back with a more complete review once I finish the book. Although I was a bit rusty in Java and got along okay, the authors really mean it when it says you should know Java first. I had to dive in, hoping that a sort of reverse cold-turkey will help me get back into it, and it did-- although I have to admit I feel as if my brain is going to explode.
Note: I have bought an older version of this textbook and the newest Kindle version. This review applies mostly to the Kindle version. It's well formatted, although you might have to adjust your Kindle settings for your comfort. I read the book on a 22" monitor, a 12" inch tablet and an 8" tablet, and the book displays fine on all of them with only a little tweaking. I haven't come across any typos or formatting errors, at least not anything significant that I can remember.
Update 7/25/2017: Just finished Chapter 30, on Chapter 31 now. I've hit my first snag with the book on the second part of Chapter 29, Broadcast Intents, but I think I must've missed something. Fortunately I don't need broadcast intents for my apps. Your mileage with this chapter may vary.
This book eases you into the system with simple examples and then takes the time to explain what's important in the supporting infrastructure. I feel much more informed about the whole thing and confident that the project I need to port will be successful.
I should also note that Big Nerd Ranch published an introduction to Cocoa development that I relied on (almost 15 years ago!) to make the switch to Mac OS X development. Good to see that the quality of their instructional texts is still top notch!
