1.0 out of 5 stars The companion web site does NOT have sample files
This ought to be an excellent book. Unfortunately, the publisher (Wiley) issued the book without the companion web site being available. This companion web site has its URL printed on the back cover, where it is claimed that you can "find sample files from the book". This same omission was also mentioned in a facebook comment by someone else.

1.0 out of 5 stars The companion web site does NOT have sample files, 24 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Adobe Edge Animate CC For Dummies (Paperback)
This ought to be an excellent book. Unfortunately, the publisher (Wiley) issued the book without the companion web site being available. This companion web site has its URL printed on the back cover, where it is claimed that you can "find sample files from the book". This same omission was also mentioned in a facebook comment by someone else.

[Update 11 Nov 2013: Since writing this review, I have been in touch with the publisher. The URL on the back cover now works, BUT there are only a few extras and still no sample files. In the publisher's email, it was stated that "... you can follow the link [...] to access Extras for the title. There does not appear to be any 'sample files from the book' provided by the author. The editorial team is working to get some further documents uploaded ... ". So, to be fair, the publisher is working on this problem, but it does seem to me to be unreasonable to expect customers to pay full price for a book that is still a work in progress].

Unlike the excellent Dreamweaver CC For Dummies (For Dummies (Computers)) (which I bought recently and which has nice thick glossy paper with colour illustrations that are very clear), this book uses cheap paper that is so thin that you can see the print from the other side. Surprisingly they both have the same RRP of £21.99. The Edge Animate book uses grey-scale illustrations that are small and very, very difficult to make out. There is an unusual feature of the printing/paper - the illustrations have a sheen that reflects light back so that if, like many, you use overhead lighting, the images will be lost behind the reflected light. As a consequence, I found myself having to move the book around to get it at the right angle to minimise these reflections.

If you feel that you can use the book without the sample files and with very poor illustrations, good luck.
