Those gigantic Flash 5 books are fascinating, but what if you need to learn the rudiments in a hurry, hands on? For you, there's Essential Flash 5 For Web Professionals. This is classic learn-by-doing. You'll actually build two live Flash sites from scratch: one for a slightly stodgy biotech company, the other for a slick fashion magazine. (Nice touch, since the world's full of both kinds of clients, and you can rarely predict which one's coming next.)
In a mere 250 downsized pages, you'll learn the new Flash 5 interface, learn how to import and fine-tune your graphics and other media; add interactivity; build splash screens and e-mail forms; selecting resolution, platforms, and settings; create preload animations, and more. To check your work, you can download each project at key stages, or view it directly online, on the book's web site. Very efficient -- and quite fun.(Bill Camarda)
