One of the problems with Flash CS3 and Flex is that Adobe, uncharacteristically, has been late in getting documentation about ActionScript 3 to its customers. Yes you can find things spread over helpfiles, an extras CD, and various websites - but the search can be tedious and time consuming. So with the ActionScript 3 Bible the authors have an opportunity to deliver the goods all in one place and for the most part they do so admirably. First, there are lots of explanations of and examples for the big changes between ActionScript 2 and ActionScript 3. Second, the writers make sure in detail that you get started running the many examples 'a tricky wicket to say the least - appreciated'. Third, the examples run the gamut of games, web pages, to navigation bars - a good but not perfect cross section. It would be nice to have more examples of data connections and use with Adobe's new AIR runtime. But, all in all, very Bible-like comprehensive coverage of a new and important element in Flash development.
