5.0 out of 5 stars Reliable and enduring Visual QuickStart Guide standards
Concise, clear, easy to follow instructions with simple examples to build upon. You will find no traces of Martian or Esperanto in this book - this is English at its best, using relatable analogies to explain new concepts! Whilst this book helps to update and consolidate previous ActionScript 2.0 editors, it is an optimum introduction to those who are new to the topic...

My disappointment with the book is just how poorly it has been proof-read. Every chapter there are typically 2 to 3 errors in the examples code. It's possible to spot most of these as you type them in as you quickly learn Actionscript's syntax but I still feel it hinders the readers progress and on the odd occasion when I couldn't get code to run correctly it had me skipping over parts of the book until I found another part I felt I could confidently get a handle on.
