Large corporations spend crazy amounts of money in mobile advertising to be first in Google Play charts. This is because there is big revenue to be made for those who can make it to the top. (Check out King.com revenues to be convinced.) The only way you can compete with them is by being more agile. This means you have to do more than just make an app and hope that users will come magically—your app should be exceptional, unique, original—and you must be the first to market!
Most books about Android programming are written for novices and there are only a few books targeting intermediate to advanced Android programmers. Even worse, there isn't a single book on the market that teach Android programming best practices from day 1.
In contrast, select any book about Ruby on Rails programming and chances are it will have, at the very least, one chapter about writing unit tests or test driven development (TDD)!
This is why I have written this book for intermediate-level Android developers: I've searched and reviewed many books looking for tips about using Agile methodologies with Android, and I've found nothing! There are a lot of tools out there to improve your life as an Android developer and Agile practitioner, but only scarce documentation about it.
This book teaches you everything you need to know to develop top-quality apps and will take you to the next level with Android.
Agile Android Software Development is the only book about writing Android software faster, and better than your competition using Agile. Go ahead, search for one book on the subject. You will not find any.
On top of all his excellent work translating the book into French he still pledged generously to the Kickstarter campaign for the 2nd edition. Thank you, Étienne!

Your book looks really interesting! I’m already working full-time as a Java/C# developer and I’m eager to learn mobile software development but the evenings are too short! So I want to work smarter. I believe that your book will help me achieve this goal. Good luck with this great project!
Your book makes me want to learn Android programming!
