The best Actionscript book ever !, 1 Mar. 2003
I have personally being trying to learn actionscript fairly unsuccessfully for a year or so. I have no previous programming experience and have been buying several flash Actionscript books and doing many online tutorials to try and learn the script.
However I didn't really get anywhere, I just couldn't seem to absorb or understand the script as well as was needed.
This book is what helped, as long as you read the entire book, possibly including the language reference at the back you should be able to doing nearly anything you want. It explains everything in great detail which means that if you don't understand it you haven't read it enough. The only suggestion is that as you read the book it would be a great idea to follow some kind of project to back-up the learning from the book so the script is properly absorbed.
So therefore if you want a complete reference to actionscript I really recommend this book.
