We've mentioned the book "Effective Java" by Joshua Bloch quite a few times on previous episodes. At this point, everyone knows they should have read this book (quadruple times). But it's a dense read and everyone could use a reading buddy. Also, what does Effective Java look like through the eyes of an Android developer?

Stay tuned for more items from our "Effective Java for Android developers" Fragment series.
