I will agree with some of the other reviews. This is not an advanced book, so the title is alittle misleading. And while it is also true that some of these tutorials can be found on the web
the time it would take to gather all of this information would be rather time consuming. That being said, this book is a top notch beginner to Intermediate Flash Developer's reference. I have certainly purchased my share of flash books and this one is pound for pound the most comprehensive, methodical, well-written
book on my shelf. I probably reach for this one along with ASTDG more than any others when I really need answers/explanations. I am not an advanced developer YET, so this is suiting me just fine, when my skill level reaches a more advanced level, well we all know that more than one reference is needed for any program anyway, so whatever! This is the go to guide until your an advanced Flash developer. And even then, I still think there is plenty of useful info in this one.
If you don't really respond to those this is my Design/Dev Co. and this is my big Flash project so follow along and maybe you will learn something books and want to be held by the hand just alitle, you will get alot out this book. I would have liked to have given 4 1/2 stars for the misleading title. Welcome to the real world!

I really enjoying actionscripting. the book together with the cd really brings things to light. It felt nice when I wrote my first script (with errors, but was able to solve them). The examples I found were relevant to the what I wanted to do, that is build a web page using flash.
If you are familiar with flash 5 then you should have no problems with flash mx.
I am a novice and I would recommend the book to anyone who is new to actionscripting. Best of all if you are like me and want to jump in without much reading, then the cd is available to work with.
Now I feel ready to design a web page that I can be proud of...one that looks professionally done.
Now I have to go because I really need to get back to my actionscripting...I am really enjoying this!!

Okay, so my rationale for getting this title is a bit questionable: I've been struggling with learning this not-exactly-user-friendly program for about two years now, and figured it was such a bear to begin with, why not delve into Flash's scripting language and get immersed in the most complex aspect of it? If nothing else, it might make Flash's more basic tools seem that much easier. Some other reviewers complained it wasn't advanced enough; that wouldn't be a deterrent for me.
Things started off promising enough: this was the first time I'd tried using such extensive script in the Actions Panel, it was actually working, and I was starting to not only get a sense of accomplishment but also sort of grasp the syntax of it all. If I messed something up, there was the Output Window to show me what I needed to change, and fixing mistakes is one of the best ways to learn.
However, starting at around Chapter 4, it became painfully obvious that the proofers didn't check what was written in the book against the tutorial files on CD. So here was another challenge, and eventually I was able to figure out what was intended ..... though it was not helpful when the authors would tell you to add some script but were not clear about exactly where to add it. By Chapter 6, when instructed to create a script in a new, blank document and not having it come out as the authors described even after the third attempt, things became seriously annoying.
Most publishers of these sorts of books post corrections to errors on their websites, and give readers opportunities to to report such. Sadly, niether is the case with Macromedia Press, which I think is somewhat arrogant ..... I guess they figure they supply the software, so we struggle with their screwups in print. Not that this book doesn't have useful information: it does, and the authors present it well, with potentially good tutorials and in depth interpretations of the scripting language. But buyer beware: it is by no means a perfect volume, and if you purchase it, prepare for no small amount of frustration.

I have a pile of books that teach AS with Flash projects, mostly Flash 5, but this book is far ahead of the crowd. The projects are simple yet highly effective and the organization and content is wonderful. It covers the basics quickly and moves on to intermediate and advanced concepts and code. It is not for advanced programmers who want to be experts. There are a few editing problems but you'll survive them. Go to their Web site for some of the corrections. - jim

This book has been a great reference to have on the shelf. It's helped me out more times than I can count.

This is an excellent book to learn actionscript. Work through the lessons and you will have a good handle on all the important aspects of the language.

Flash is dead thanks to Apple. I doubt this is even being sold anymore. Oh, well. The internet goes on.
