“Excellent work, and I will definitely recommend it to everyone who asks me how to do the Android thing.” - Dan McNeil

"I'd feel comfortable recommending the book to anyone with a solid understanding of software development who was looking to get into Android programming.” - Michael

"This book will teach anyone who has at least some experience with Android to be an elite Android developer.” - Debra Stern

Thanks for the kind words everyone! Glad you're finding the book helpful for your Android development.

I did a live interview with +RootzWiki last night, talking about the book and Android development in general.

After that they started talking about much more interesting things :)
