AndBook is a non-commerical book to learn programming for Google’s Android as a ‘hands on’ process. As mentioned in the book, “This document was written for developers who have worked with Java™ before and want to start developing for the Android Platform. I tried to make this as much “hands on” as possible, placing example codes everywhere it fit. Also I tried to insert as many picture as possible, because they liven up the learning process and relax the reader’s eyes.”
