I urge you not to skip Chapter 1, at least. It presents a model of concurrency that is somewhat atypical and
that is the basis for the discussion in the following chapters.
Chapters 2 and 3 are intentionally short. They are a refresher for some basic ideas and provide an
opportunity to reintroduce some common idioms. Experienced developers may choose to skim them.
Chapter 4 is a cautionary tale.
The heart of the book is Chapters 5 through 7. These chapters are a deep dive into some of the details of
the Android operating system.
Chapter 8 is dessert: a bit of a how-to for some concurrency tools.
