    Don't buy this book.

    I bought three different Flash tutorial books and by far this one is the worst. The book is hard to follow at times. Some instructions are not clear and sometimes a step is missing. This would be the last time I'll buy a Visual Quickstart Guide book all together.

    Learning Flash CS4 Professional by Rich Shupe from O'Reilly books is far better. Easy to read, easy to follow. Good learning.
