There are a number of books available like Pro Android 2 (Apress), Beginning Android 2 (Apress), Professional Android 2 Application Programming (Wrox). You can start with any of these books...

Professional Android 2 Application Programming (Wrox) is really good and it is written by Google engineer.
You need also Eclipse.

Well, if you want to run Eclipse plugins, then you'll obviously need Eclipse. But for Android development in general (which is what is discussed here), Eclipse is not needed.
