    Helpful only for some!

    This book seems to be geared towards people who are unfamiliar with actionscript 3.0 in particular. It highlights several differences between the latest version of actionscript and previous ones. Generally, I found the topics discussed to be very broad and kind of simple. At the risk of sounding pompous I have to say that I am new actionscript programming, but I did not find this book very useful even if well written.

    A must have.

    I've using FLEX since its 1.0 beta days, and can honestly say that each day I learn something new about this language. It's even better when you have the 'cheat codes' for the game in which we play, FLEX development. This book has quite comprehensive repositories of good ol fashion FLEX recipes and are relevant to the average FLEX developer out there. It's not so much for the newbie¿s, but it doesn't count them out either as it finds a nice balance in helping folks learn from Code instead of FLEX 101 lessons. As others have hinted, the focus on DisplayLists will open a few minds to the possibilities of how easy they are and the concept of re-parenting is something that most will not be able to grasp. I'd rate this book to be a must have for anyone using FLEX right now, and if you're a FLASH developer of old, moving into the ranks of FLEX then this has to be a first purchase. I don't usually give glowing references like this to books, and so its rare I talk it up like I have but its a great book written by some serious propeller heads who have the respect of their peers within the FLEX 'who's who'.
