This visual quickstart guide functions both as a tool for getting up and running quickly with Flash MX and as a reference resource once you're working with the software. I highly recommend this book to beginner-intermediate Flash users.

Basic information, poor organization, useless index
This book is a descent resource of basic information; that is, if you can find it. That's the most frustrating thing about this book is that it suffers from poor organization and a horrible index that follows it's own inexplicable logic.
E-mail links? No listing in the index. Same for such basic terms as: pop-up windows, navigation, browser windows, publishing, windows, importing, and printing. It was easier and less frustrating to flip through the entire book than to try to figure out the logic of the index.
If you chance on some information that you may need, put a placeholder or a stickynote there immediately; you may never find it again.
