Different, but still good.
50 bucks for this, I wouldn't have paid 50 bucks for this if I would have known half the book isn't about Flash. I guess that's ok, because it teaches you to build a webisode from all aspects: graphics, sounds, distribution, and gif links. However, I don't have Acid, Fireworks, or the other programs mentioned. I liked the fact that the author gives you fast loading games (actionscrit) to play as your epic webisode is loading. Some nice touches. The cd is good, but for 50 dollars, I wish there were more about Flash.

Flash AND Acid how to info
I really like the fact that this book covers more than just one product. It covers ACID pretty well. some of the samples are funny. The cd-rom has plenty of software and samples (much better than most of the other computer books I've recently purchased). I really liked chapter 18. This is a good book if you have some time to really pick apart the samples. The first three chapters start off slow but the book really picks up the pace towards the end.

Gives you the whole picture...
I really liked this book/cd-rom. This book not only gives you the nuts and bolts of how to make flash content, it also gives you some basic internet trend information ( how many narrowband users vs. broadband users...). This information helped me pitch my flash content to my department head! The cd-rom has some good samples and software. The loop section is very cool.
