3.0 out of 5 stars Some excellent design tips, let down by sloppy presentation, 25 Nov. 2001
This review is from: Flash Web Design: The V5 Remix - the Art of Motion Graphics Continues (Paperback)
This book is an unusual offering, and that's what makes it valuable. It does not claim to teach you Flash, and requires at least a little grounding in the software, but it does teach you a design approach for Flash, as well as explaining how to produce some fairly advanced effects.
As a programmer coming to Flash with an appreciation of, but not much skill in, design, I have found this book invaluable. However, it is severely let down by numerous very basic errors - text which explains very poorly or fails to explain how to carry out vital steps in the procedure, many many screen shots which don't match the text they're supposed to illuminate, and an overall design which just tries far too hard. I get the impression that Mr. Curtis may have written a great Flash 4 book and then got a little sloppy in the remix.
Not a book for the beginner - you need your wits about you to translate between Curtis-speak and genuine Flash commands from time-to-time, but if you're willing to persevere then you are certain to learn from the exercises in here.
