2.0 out of 5 stars just OK July 10 2009

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
By its nature this book is somewhat disjointed. It's OK as a starter for some very basic techniques but not great as a reference. It is not well indexed.

2.0 out of 5 stars An unnecessary read June 2 2010
By Michael D. Huen - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author teaches a Flash Actionscript 3.0 class at a community college, so me being a student of his he made us buy his book. I found the book to be rather shallow. Even as someone who just learned Flash, many of the chapters were unneeded as long as you experimented and played around with Flash. Such an example would be the drawing tools, layers, and folders. If you already know some other Adobe programs like Illustrator of Photoshop you shouldn't have a hard time adapting; however, if you're someone who needs to be hand guided step by step this might be a nice reference.

I found many sections that weren't explicitly written, or, could have used a visual explanation. This book is really for the extreme novice, not the intermediate or expert. Even the novices might want to look elsewhere because this book will probably only last you a couple of months before you pickup the required skills. In fact I only used this book several times before switching to another.

3.0 out of 5 stars Book for Newbies May 12 2009
By L. Richardson - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was expecting more in-depth "how-tos" and definitely more on Spry. Save your money and buy the Flash Bible instead.
