Thanks for the great questions and warm welcome. Some of the longer code snippets are a bit challenging to answer here but higher level questions about Android positioning, strategies and specific questions about the book are great.

Android in Action is aimed at developers with a familiarity with Java but not necessarily experience with Android. If you have experience with Android, you will find a lot of interesting content beyond basic "SDK" coverage.

Have been working through the Android Developer's Cookbook. Always good to get a different angle on things. Look forward to giving this a look. Good luck on your book!
