"Great book on programming techniques" - by jason on 13-APR-2013

I don't understand the bad reviews given by the Safari subscribers especially when the ratings of this book on Amazon is 4.5 stars.

Anyways, this is a great book that contains many useful, practical programming techniques and tips that are not available in other "Learning" android books.

"Nothing to see" - by Knut on 19-FEB-2013

As the title says, there's little information in this book. Most chapters are just a couple of sentences called problem, a couple of sentences called solution. These two sections are followed by a section called discussion that sometimes is a bit longer, but still mostly useless.

I decided to check the book out despite the previous reviews since I couldn't believe it could be so bad, but I was wrong. It is as bad as the previews reviewers have said.
