If you had followed the link to the book's Amazon page, you would have discovered quickly that the book does not cover native Android programming at all. It is about optimizing web sites for displaying/running on Android.

Well, it does mention the PhoneGap library, which looks like a bridge into native Android code and/or functionality. The rest sounds like web apps to me; I'm sure the authors can provide clarification :-)
As for whether we cover consuming a SOAP webservice, no we don't and the resources Monu points to would be a good starting place if you are looking to do this from a native Android application.
