5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading, 29 Oct. 2010
If you are basically a nice person who needs a little advice and non-religious faith in order to face up to life in the modern world, this book is essential reading.
If you are manipulative, pushy, get-to-the-top-at-all-costs person, then buy yourself a 'self-help' book from some obnoxious rich author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Got me through the painful start, 29 Oct. 2010
Colin is top man. This book got me through the first painful weeks of learning / using AS3
I just skimmed through it a year later, and realise that I now use most of the stuff in this book in my day-to-day work.
One VERY nice thing, is that he explains what the Flash plug-in DOES with your code, and in what order things happen. That is hard info to find and is more useful than it may appear. Essential, perhaps ;)

2.0 out of 5 stars Good for beginners, 29 Oct. 2010
Strange mixture - some fairly advanced stuff... But a lot of simplistic guff. If you have developed a few dozen games, this book is almost certainly of no use to you. If you are starting out, it is of great use and has many valid points.
I have developed a few games and was disappointed. I expected to learn. I didn't. Oh well.
