Wallace Jackson has authored a book for people with no programming experience, who are interested in developing Android Apps. The book Android Apps for absolute beginners is published by Apress and covers all you need to know to get started in Android development.
The first part of the book looks at getting your development environment set up, using free open source tools such as the eclipse IDE. It goes on to introduce the Android framework before looking at the components of an Android App.
Since the book assumes no prior development experience, it takes you step by step through building an Android App from screen and UI design to handling events, understanding content providers and intents. It seems to be a great book to start your Android development journey.
