"The book is well-organized, making it a valuable reference to keep at hand."

"When it comes to doing real hands-on work with Flex 4, this is definitely a great reference book. However, its concentration on Spark and relatively light coverage of MX components makes it a complementary volume to The Flex 3 Cookbook rather than a replacement of it. For the foreseeable future, serious Flex developers may want to keep both editions within arm's reach."
--Huw Collingbourne, Bitwise Magazine

"Its all in here in a well explained and comprehensive fashion--everything the artist, designer, or hobbyist needs to exploit programming, microcontrollers, physical computing, sensors and actuators, and interaction design...But this is the best and most up-to-date and comprehensive review of Physical Computing and Interactive Programming available anywhere.
