In Sec. 3.2 the author states ”...Declarative design, on the other hand, does not involve any code. When you’re designing a simple web page, you use HTML, a markup language based on XML…”
I believe that’s wrong. Both HTML and XML were based on SGML. Then HTML was used most commonly. XML become more widely used in the late 1990s. While some might argue that XML was not directly based upon HTML, I think it can be certainly stated that HTML was not based upon XML.--Robert Marshall

On page 146, the first text line reads "In this example, we have five rows ...".
It's actually 6 rows, instead of 5 ...
TR = row 1
ET = row 2
TR = row 3
TV = row 4
TV = row 5
TV = row 6
Minor error, but might be confusing, if you're learning TableLayout.--Bart Blommaerts (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Section 8.3, Subtitle "Emulation Notes"
'create a new AVD for the "Google APIs" build target called "em15google."'
Since the build target was actually "Google APIs (Platform 1.6)" on p. 162, this should more clearly be named "em16google."--KathyJ
