"For any serious ActionScripter, there comes a point when you have to explore advance theory and programming methodology. All too often in our industry, developers are self taught with no formal training or programming education. This is an excellent book to bridge the gap."
--Paul Milbourne, Flash the District
"College-level and specialty computer libraries covering web development will find William Sanders & Chandima Cumaranatunge's ActionScript 3.0 Design Patterns an excellent acquisition, covering common problems in Flash and Flex applications and providing developers with the tools necessary to adopt superior design patterns. From key components of ActionScript 3.0 and its characteristics to the benefits of developing both structural and behavioral patterns, Actionscript 3.0 is a pick for any advanced programmer's library."
--James Cox, The Bookwatch: The Computer Shelf
"This book is a useful guide for approaching programming problems and challenges in Flash and Flex applications through
the use of reusable design patterns in ActionScript 3.0. The authors show, step by step, how to structure programming code
that can be used to build working applications. The reader is introduced to progressively more complex programming examples that provide insight into producing well-structured programming solutions."
