"This book is a must have for any Flash developer. Even if you are new to ActionScript, this book offers a quick off the-the-shelf reference for many of the common (and uncommon) tasks faced by the day-to-day developer. With names like Keith Peters and Joey Lott taking the author credit, you know you are getting an experienced, well-written book that is sure to deliver. The book offers complete coverage, from the basics to remoting and socket development. "

"Each topic is grouped to provide information on specific problems so they can be accessed quickly and easily. This allows for the book to be used as a reference so you don't have to read it from cover to cover & you could if you wanted to however. Along with each topic, this book provides many useful code examples. Not only that, but the authors explain why they used the code approach they did for that example. That brings up another bonus point for this book; its simplicity. The book is extremely easy to understand. It does not however gloss over the more intricate points of a and goes into great detail without overwhelming the reader. "
