Reinhardt & Dowd do it again Feb. 1 2006
By JackMo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book just keep getting better and better. I've had every edition since Flash 5 and over the years Robert Reinhardt and colleagues have dug ever deeper into the power of Flash. This goes far beyond the typical "comprehensive reference" (though it certainly is that) to provide a definitive resource totally grounded in real-world considerations and guidance. You really only need on one Flash book, and this is it.

Extremely thorough, understandable, and well-written June 22 2006
By H. Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am a Computer Science student and purchased this book to learn Flash for use with a project. I am very pleased-I think the book has very thorough descriptions and examples, and also offers great advice about design issues and other important considerations when developing a project.

I would highly recommend this book for someone who is new to Flash. As someone with technical background, it was very easy to follow and understand, and also offered insights that I do not get from my classes. I believe even those with limited development experience will find the book very informative, since it does not assume that the readers have prior knowledge about the topics in the book.

Great book, highly recommended!

Ok May 28 2006
By Pat L - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have not seen the other Flash Bible Books so therefore gave it a 4 star rating. Also i am a tad dissapointed, the book itself has a lot of info (which the first few chapters is basic stuff) but it also seems that this may be the same content as the other Flash Bible books. It does go over some of the new Flash 8 features like the filters, however i was hoping the book would contain the new "BitmapData" and bitmap caching but it did not. Also maybe go over the timeline effects even if it is simple to understand. Had these features been included it would have been 5 stars.

Robert You Rock! Jan. 29 2007
By Jennifer L. Graves - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Not only is the Flash 8 Bible a must have for all Flash developers, Robert takes the book a step further by offering FANTASTIC technical support. For example, I had trouble with a function taught in the book, I posted the question on Robert's support page and within less than an hour of posting my question, Robert got back to me with assistance and helped me until the problem was solved.

You won't regret this book or the support that is offered with it. The best Flash book I've ever purchased!

Very comprehensive Jan. 9 2007
By Leland Krum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought the book wanting to get a jump start using Flash. I have been a programmer for over 15 years and wanted to learn how to make multimedia apps with Flash. The book is written to be a reference manual but also is an easy read with several keep projects per concept taught. The examples were a bit simplistic, though.
