5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for beginners
This is an excellent book for beginning multimedia developers. I use it in the classroom and find it an invaluable text and reference for my students. There are better books available for Lingo, but this one is a great start -- comprehensive but easy to understand!

1.0 out of 5 stars ....but it makes a good doorstop.
This book was the required text for my multimedia authoring class because no other Director 6 books were available at the time. It was so poorly laid out that after a few weeks my instructor gave up on teaching with the book. Now that I use Director at work, I've realized that it doesn't even cut it as a reference.
Inside Director tries to teach general multimedia...

This review is from: Inside Macromedia Director 6 with Lingo (Paperback)
This book was the required text for my multimedia authoring class because no other Director 6 books were available at the time. It was so poorly laid out that after a few weeks my instructor gave up on teaching with the book. Now that I use Director at work, I've realized that it doesn't even cut it as a reference.
Inside Director tries to teach general multimedia rather than the fundamentals of Director. The book attempts to teach you how to create sound and digital movies in other programs(Which has nothing to do with learning Director), yet it severely lacks in explaining how to handle sound and movies in Director. The book also teaches you more about how to write HTML(Which also has nothing to do with learning Director), then how to create streaming shockwave movies with net Lingo.
Save your money and buy a different book.

1.0 out of 5 stars if you're reading this, it's not too late, 11 Jan 1999

This review is from: Inside Macromedia Director 6 with Lingo (Paperback)
If I want to hear how good Director is, I'd go to the Macromedia web site. This book does not go into the specific. It tells you WHAT you can do with Director not actaully HOW to do it. The money I spent on this book does not worth the education I received from it. Oh well, Director 7 is coming out by the time you read this, lt's hope these guys would do a better job at actaully writing a reference book instead of a brouchure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good reference material, but lacks depth on many topics, 17 Nov 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Inside Macromedia Director 6 with Lingo (Paperback)
A good allrounder for beginners to experienced developers, but lacks some of the fundimental elements used in more complex executions; a good buy all the same. Would recommend to other director users, developers as a handy on the shelf reference guide.
