Android NDK Beginner’s Guide Book Review

Great introduction to using the Android NDK for Android Developers!

This is a great book to get started with the Android NDK. It’s definitely aimed at someone who has some experience developing on Android already, and has had some programming experience in C++. I hadn’t used the NDK previously, so appreciated the chapters on setting it up for Linux, Mac and Windows.
I liked that it provides information for interfacing OpenGL from C++, and integrating both Box2d, and the Irrlicht open source 3d game engine.

This book would be very helpful for anyone trying to either integrate an existing C++ library to use on Android, or for game developers, trying to push better performance from Android devices.
