Unfortunately the book doesnt explain what some of the features does so if you want to learn a lot about what actionscript is and what it does in a website i would'nt recommend buying this book. If you are looking for an easy simple step by step guide to making a website buy this book now!
I have some experience in Flash, i am probably rated as average, i got this book so that i could see the steps it took to make a flash site and to get ideas on structure and how pages should be loaded etc.
The problem with the book is that it is soo focused on the examples to show you how to make the website that you learn nothing else. It could easily have branched out into short explaintions of what else you could achieve by using certain tools. Or listed useful components at the end of a chapter.
Also some times you wonder why you are doing a certain step. "Change the progress bar to polled..." WHY!? I still don't know what polled is. It could do with a few more explaintions.
Saying that though, the book is cheap and will take you about a day to get though if you stick with it. It gives you an understanding of what is involved in making a flash site and will give you the ability to make a site yourself.
But i must stress that this is really only the tip of the iceberg, this book shows you how to create a functional site. It doesn't even cover importing video's.
Its good for what it is but additional reading will be needed if you wish to create a flash site of todays standards
