I am not much for book reviews, but I wanted to share my thoughts on this particular book. I just finished reading The Complete Android Guide and I have to say it is a must read for anyone getting an Android phone. This books covers all the basics of the Android system. From the home screen and notifications to music and photos, it covers it all. My favorite part of the book were the tutorials. The book has tutorials on numerous items including: how to setup your phone, great app alternatives for your phone, and how to save your android battery.
The book is written in such a way that you could read it cover to cover or just skip to the area you need some info on.
Get the book from here or you can read the lifehacker.com article about it here.
