This has got to be one of the best computer books I've read in a long time. The examples are concise and informative. By the end of a lesson you will not only have gone through the process of creating Flash 5 animations but you will understand that process as well. Even in this world of tight deadlines where a mistake is made in the copy you will be able to deduce what is supposed to be done.

I started reading this book in November 00. At the time I knew nothing about Flash. Chapter after chapter my knowledge grew by leeps and bounds. This book taught me so much, Katherine Ulrich I owe you BIG !!

Good book for beginners. Works well as a reference when you're just playing around with it and need some help.

I'm a firstimer Flash user. This book guides me from the basic to advanced technique swiftly. It's easy to follow.

This book covers all the flash 5 basis with very helpful visual guides. It could cover actions in more detail, but it is the ideal book for beginners and a helpful reference to those with previous flash experience.

Great overview....Needs to cover more dynamic content delivery methods such as XML. Coverage is brief in this area, which should be an important topic.
