1.0 out of 5 stars Not the best book that I've read on Actionscript..., Sept. 5 2002
If you are serious about learning the basic principles of Actionscript, I recommend skipping this particular title - (sorry...)
This was the first Actionscript book that I had ever purchased, and I found myself purchasing another Actionscript shortly thereafter. Don't get me wrong, for the few days I was learning things, but as soon as the actual coding begins, alot of the syntax explanation was simply not there leaving me with more questions than answers. Even the live example site documented in the book was kinda weak. I like the "Friends of Ed" titles but you can tell that this was an early work.
The most important keys were missing, syntax and way that the Actionscript interpretor in the Flash Player works - pretty important subjects. Luckily, I found a more "definitive guide" (hint to the title) by Colin Moock that covered the language pretty fully and left me with more answers than questions!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Guitar Compendium - Without Question., Sept. 5 2002
This review is from: The Guitar Handbook (Paperback)
If there is one book that truly sums up the daunting task of learning the guitar's every aspect from A-Z, this is it. No stone is left unturned. Every page is overflowing with diagrams and illustrations that are quite precise in their point.
Futhermore, there are no wasted words, and page space for that matter - this book comes close to perfection in it's layout as well as it's rich and diverse content. Everything I can think of is covered: It goes beyond my words to accurately describe the incredible amount of forethought put into this book.
