"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."
