    Excellent

    To anyone who is new to Flash I highly recommend this book. Though it's thousands of pages long you will find yourself zimming through it rather quickly. After reading this book another recommended book would be ActionScript Bible; and you will be able to master all the functionality of Flash. I like that this book is written as if you're an idiot... most books are written as if you already know the software which in my opinion defeats the purpose of buying a book to learn for the first time. This is recommended for beginners that wants to get familiar with the world of flash and all of it's possibilities and catch up to those who already knows the ins and outs of the software.

    Rubbish

    I have to say I purchased the book through Barnes and Noble and their service was great. Unfortunately the book is utter garbage. It is not a reference guide or a learning tool. It is simply chapter after chapter of waffle. Lengthy discussions on animation have no place here. I am now having to purchase another book which will actually help me learn flash.

    A complete and thorough resource.

    If you need hand holding and a point by point introduction to every detail of Flash then pick up Lynda Weiman's book, Flash MX (H.O.T). For a more complete and advanced look at everything this program packs, then this is the book to get. From project planning to polishing up the final presentation this book doesn't leave anything to chance. Although there's plenty to read, the reading is not tiring or dry. I have recommended this book repeatedly to would-be Flash gurus, in addition to a good Actionscript title....(to be continued)

    Outstanding! Solid, Cutting Edge Flash MX Instruction

    If you only buy one Flash MX book -- this is definitely the one to get. There is nothing out there that offers as much information as this book does. At 1272 pages, whether you're at a beginning, intermediate or advanced level -- you will not walk away from this book without taking your skill to the next level and beyond. It is easy to understand, offers indepth, step-by-step, 'how to', information on Flash MX development & design. So if you need to understand how to develop a project, are looking to integrate video/audio into flash, interested in animation, actionscripting, or communicating directly to server-side scripts -- you'll learn how to do it here. Robert Reinhardt is a cutting edge developer & instructor in the Flash community, I was fortunate enough to be able to take one of his classes and he is good. In addition to his expertise, he has included 30 guest experts -- each offering step-by-step instruction in their area of expertise. Easy to follow, backed by a live web-forum, includes secrets, cutting edge tips & tricks, as well as a CD chocked full of examples, add-ons, plug-ins, shareware, and templates. There is seriously nothing out there that will offer you this scope and level of information. You will not be disappointed!
