Default Disappointing

Even in the context of the fast-changing environment that is mobile development, the first chapter of what is considered to be an introductory book should not be so riddled with errors/omissions.

It is really bad form - even from a beginning Android developer's perspective - to drop text into the code without an accompanying string resource. It is irresponsible to encourage newcomers to the operating system to take such sloppy "short cuts".

Beginning Android has a long way to go before it becomes a book that I would recommend to anybody else.
