This book is extremely well written and organized with precision. The few questions that I had while reading this book were due to my simple oversights. The author, Bonnie Blake, is an excellent author who uses precise examples and leaves nothing unexplained. Bravo Ms. Blake!!

Terribly written, organized - highly confusing
This is simply a terrible book. As a few reviewers have mentioned, the organization is atrocious. There are sections on putting Flash on the web before you learn ANYTHING about Flash. Early chapters continuously assume that you know subjects from later on. Many of the descriptions of how to do things are simply wrong; I frequently had to stare at the screen agonizing over how to make something work, because following the description did nothing.
Do yourself a big favor and stay far away from this book.

Yeah, I have to agree. . .
. . this book is so terribly written and edited that it was impossible to begin to tackle Flash MX with it, I don't know why I didn't check Amazon first. By the first chapter I knew this book was going to be useless; three pages into Chapter One she begins a segment called, "Get a Flash File Up On The Web". Now, why would you concern yourself with this step, in the beginning of the first chapter of a book on how to use Flash? That's the way the whole book goes. A disaster.
