Slick, but Not for Beginners.
I bought this book hoping it will help me to learn Flash 5. From a beginner perspective this book is very lacking and the examples are missing some necessary steps. Its certainly a nicely designed book but gives you no sense in what to expect from it. I expected the examples to be written in such a way that anyone can do it as long as the instructions are followed... and that didn't happen. Disappointed.

great inspiration, but outdated content
I give this a strong four because it is teaching me how and why to animate...and for me that's more valuable, but some of the examples are outdated. You're probably better off with a FlashMX book at this point.

I wouldn't listen to these guys when it comes to design. It's actually hard to read and find information because of their 'style'. And it doesn't look cool either. A lot of hot air, little substance.
