As Macromedia has beefed up Flash with each revision, its capabilities have become very powerful and numerous. So much so that a comprehensive text on it can span a thousand pages. Which can be very forbidding to someone wanting to quickly learn enough to get started doing useful things. In response, Hoekman offers his book. The blurb claims that you can come up to speed with this book faster than with any other Flash tutorial book. Take that claim with a grain of salt. A bit of marketing hype. But it is not totally unreasonable. For one thing, he avoids explaining every feature of Flash. There is a lot you don't need to know as a beginner. He shows basic and common operations. Starting with drawing simple graphics. Then doing animations. And moving onto imbuing interactive behaviour and putting in sound and streaming video. There are other tasks he goes into. But this should convey the essence of what he teaches you. The book might be most useful as a companion to a Flash reference text.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
