Too short, too simple.

Honestly, this book is far too simple to really teach you anything. There are many free resources which will provide far more information than this book. Alot of time was spent regurgitating useless info, such as the most basic inner workings of eclipse. Mabye I am too advanced for this level of book (it's okay for someone who has never coded in any language) but even so, you only get 2 hours to cover all the inner workings of a very complex process.
