The book starts with a good introduction, where he leads the reader to know a little of the Flash Plataform, explaining clearly the differences between Flex for Web and Desktop, making a good introduction to the development environment. At this point, the developer who is starting in Flex already feels comfortable with his new tool. The authors make a sequence of chapters designed to create forms with navigation controls, where they can be implemented include the validations, formatters, restrictions, with clear examples of how it can be done to implement each of these situations. The book also shows techniques for creating Styles and Skinning in Flex applications. The book makes a very interesting explanation on the implementation of FXG and its use in Skinning.

"Learning Flex 4" explains all of the core concepts for developing Flex 4 applications. It is definitely a beginners book as it assumes only some basic programming knowledge, and the book doesn't really go much beyond the basics of writing a simple Flex application. Full Review  >
