"Out of Date. Antiquated Eclipse GUI Used." - by Theairdog on 03-DEC-2013
Reviewer Rating: 1 star rating2 star rating3 star rating4 star rating5 star rating
I understand that they just released version 2E which is supposed to start shipping next month.

The examples used in the book are from an ancient version of the Eclipse ADT GUI.  It is very difficult to get their simplest application up and running.

I very much feel cheated on this deal, knowing that they are fixing all their "problems" with a new edition next month.

For all of you wishing to learn about Android, this book is a really good investment.
I bought it few weeks ago and haven't had a better written programming book for a while now.  I would highly recommend it.  My Java/Android skills are at beginer level but I think the book would be very useful for anyone, beginer to advanced level.  Thumbs Up Deitel & Deitel!
