I think the book works well for Android beginners, it will be accessible, but you will find a few challenges. Which I think is the point of books personally

The chapters on Development Tool Practices will hone your foundation skills and the rest of the chapters will expose you to more complex topics, giving you a broader picture of what Android can do.

Hello Rogerio,

Along with Lucas' answer, the following post elsewhere on this forum might also be of interest:

Pieter Greyling wrote:
Our book shows you both how to get started and advance to proficiency with Android SDK development following these steps:
1. Chapter 1 - Android Fundamentals: We introduce you to Android theory, the SDK and IDEs in a hands-on, practical fashion.
2. Chapter 2 - Development Tools in Practice: You learn to master the development tools of the trade with a practical application project that also serves as a how-to collection of Android programming techniques (logging, menus, toasts, notification, alerts, UI controls, files etc.) progressing all the way to creating a signed, Android Market ready, application package (APK).
3. Chapters 3 to 11: We present in-depth coverage of diverse code projects that serve to widen and deepen your understanding of the both the Android Platform and it's possible applications.


The full forum topic for the previous explanation is here:
