    The name of the book is “Learn Java for Android Development” by Jeff Friesen

    However, because this technology is based on Java, you should first obtain a solid grasp of the Java language and its foundational APIs to improve your chances of succeeding as an Android app developer.

    Learn Java for Android Development teaches programmers of any skill level the essential Java language and foundational Java API skills that must be learned to improve the programmer’s s chances of succeeding as an Android app developer. Each of the book’s 10 chapters provides an exercise section that gives you the opportunity to reinforce your understanding of the chapter’s s material. Answers to the book’s s more than 300 exercises are provided in an appendix. Once you complete this book, you will be ready to dive into Android, and you can start that journey by obtaining a copy of Beginning Android 2.

    I recently got the android developers cookbook. I am not very familiar with java so i ahd to do somet studying up, but it is a great intro resource that shows you how to do a lot of the basic app building techniques and some mroe advanced ones as well. It was not too expensive either. i just read a slashdot review on a book for developing android, i will link it below and you can see if it has what you are looking for.
