This book talks to you.., 24 Dec 2003
..having bought an assortment of books to get me started and then progress my knowledge i truely say that few have inspired me so much as this book. I felt the author talks you through everything, NOT waffles on about the subject and expects you to pick it up here and there from what is written. Jobe, and the other contributors (respected flash designers), explain and then reinforce the material they are trying to convey.
I have read the SAMS book on flash and done the hours/days etc but they didn't click as much as this book...and this is rated as for medium to advanced users. The maths section took me right back to my school days, but he hasn't made it geeky.
If you want to know how the games are made, this book lifts the cover off the engine block to show the gears moving and how they move. I thought i 'knew' about animation, well the SAMS way of thinking. Now my eyes are opened. Buy it today and learn what Flash is really about.
