    You will be amazed at how quickly you’ll be up and running using this book. I had no experience in flash before I picked this book up and now I use it as a dogeared reference and a tutorial. I liked this book because it takes you from absolute novice and shows all of the interface tools and alot of techniques, all in plain english. It reads like a textbook but with no excercises at the end of the chapters. Although actionscripting is introduced and used in about the last 3rd of the book, it doesn’t go heavy into that subject matter, and is honest about it. The bent is definitely more on how to use the tools, importing sound, using text, the timeline, and other graphic concerns. Those are important subjects to master before one dives into actionscript. All of the examples actually work (extremely important). You can download the examples from the website since there’s no cd. There was probably extensive editing, which I appreciate…I can’t find any typos or errors. The only errata I found were some of the keyboard shortcuts didn’t work, but that was a relatively minor hiccup. Overall, I found this to be an excellent resource for learning Flash MX. Kudos to Bonnie Blake!

    This book got me animating after the first chapter. I like the way it’s organized. It made it very simple to learn Flash. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who has never used this program before. It’s also not boring. Thumbs up

    This book got me going right away creating websites in Flash and it’s the first book I reach for when I’m having trouble or trying something new. It’s an easy read offering enough detail to let you explore a subject without being overly technical.

    This is not a book that deserves a read. You could find all the materials, presented better, from Macromedia site. It is also not a reference book because a lot of topics are not covered, though it is called “do everything”.
