Hi Bill Philips & Chris Stewart,

I am very new to Mobile Development, want to learn Development in Android especially the Game Development.

Does your book give an intro to Game Development?
Or without diving into Android's edge cases can I learn advanced Game Development? Like the apps that require 3D visualization?

No, we do not talk about game development in the book. There is a chapter on custom views and performing your own drawing, but it's very basic in comparison to what you're looking for (definitely no discussion of 3D).

If you are interested in game development, I'd suggest that you take a look at some of the game development frameworks that are out there. Unity is a popular choice.
