Learning ActionScript 3.0 is a perfect place to start uncovering the power of Flash CS3, and you will be amazed at how much you will learn in 350 pages (plus Index). It is the discovery of a solid programming language that is ever-changing and cutting edge. This is, overall in my opinion, the very best book in which to discover it.”
— Mark Repp, COMP Communicator - Computer Operators of Marysville and Port Huron
“In all this is a very accessible read which explains concepts well and provides step by step examples and downloadable source files. With this book as a reference any Flash programmer can happily advance their skills to work with ActionScript 3 and if you have had no experience of ActionScript then this is also a good place to start.”
— Flash Oxford User Group, Flash Oxford Review
“Any computer library strong in web development titles in general and ActionScript in particular will want the beginner's guide to Flash, Learning ActionScript 3.0. It's an excellent introduction which also lends well to classroom use and assignment... ActionScript learners will find it an essential - and surprisingly easy - reference.”
— James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review
“While targeted more at beginners, Learning ActionScript 3.0 serves as an excellent reference to some of the most common tasks ActionScript developers encounter daily. The transition from the very basics of Flash programming to more advanced topics is gentle, but engaging. The full color pages throughout this book separate it from everything else on the shelf, and O’Reilly couldn’t have chosen a better topic than Flash to enhance with this wonderful addition.”
— Josh Tynjala, Zeus Labs
“The best ActionScript book ever written.”
— Lee Brimelow, creator of The Flash Blog
