Hi there!

Mario speaking. I hope i can answer all your questions and look forward to the conversations.

Here are a couple of links that might get the ball rolling:

The book's Amazon site
The book's Apress site (Kindle/e-book versions are only available there for now)
The full Table of Contents
Google Code site: All of the book's source code is available as open source (GPLv3 at the moment, i'll change this to Apache 2 License so that you can also use it in commercial projects). There's a short introductionary video showing you how to set things up and run the projects.
Book forum: Here you can get (limited) support, you can report errors in the book or the code and so on.
Blog: my personal blog, filled with all things game development and Android (plus the occasional silly post ).
