I am interested in knowing whether the book is suitable for a beginner in Android development and also what kind of programming background is required?

The book is suitable for beginners. You should be at least somewhat comfortable with Java, you don't want to be fighting the language while learning the new APIs. There are several other languages used in the book, but we didn't assume the reader would know them well.
