    Perfect for Flash MX beginners

    A friend asked me to recommend a book so he could get started learning Flash MX, so I picked up a copy of this book. It turned out to be a great choice and one that I highly recommend. The lessons are broken down into very manageable modules with a lot of reinforcement of important concepts. My friend ended up being very pleased with my suggestion.
