    The Best Deal in Town

    SWiSHmax is a wonderful low-cost alternative to Adobe Flash and in a nutshell, this is not only a great book, but THE most authoritative guide to SWiSHmax available. I do wish that there was more coverage on scripting since that is where most of the important stuff happens, but perhaps focusing on the omissions would be like complaining that the ONLY coffee shop in town doesn't serve Hawaiian Kona. Coming in at 664 pages, you won't find more information for the price anywhere, including e-books (believe me, I've looked). The lack of coverage on scripting can be compensated by visiting some of the SWiSH forums and community websites. I think you'll be in good shape if you use the two-prong approach: the SWiSHmax Bible for all the A-Z fundamentals, and the forum & community websites for the targeted questions & problems.
