I was first introduced to the "Head First" concept trying to learn Java. I said "what is this head first stuff" but when I started to read the book, wow! I got it right away. I was actually chuckling at some of the illustrations and remarks. What a great idea! I can't wait to dive into Head First Android development!

I second Judy's comment - I've been working my way through the Head First Java book and my ultimate goal is Android development so I can't wait to check out the book! What a great way to learn.
