I've read this book a few times now; and each time I glean some more info that I had missed earlier on. The book is very adaptable, and has vital information whether you are playing about with some haXe/flash or doing some heavy neko - all in this book is as well written and as versatile as both haXe and neko.

It's also worth noting that this is one of the few dual authored technical books I've read where both authors styles match each other well; their knowledge and enthusiam for the subject shines through on every page.

If you are doing (or considering) any haXe or Neko, then this is the book for you - in fact, even if not it's very interesting from a technical standpoint to see just how versatile a language can be when you target multiple vm's with a single syntax.

It is really well written and accessible for non native. Thick, dense and comprehensive, in every page I've learned something. Chapters can be browsed to fetch necessary info without having to start from page one, use cases are smart. Content goes beyond your usual flash/web related book. I'm really enjoying reading it.

There are not many tutorials on Haxe available. I thought this book would fill the gap. It does not.
The begging chapters covers the Haxe language. Most of the examples are just a comment
line saying ' do something'. Chapter 13 contains a set of components, which are just
provided and no attempt has been made to explain how Haxe was used to create these
components. It would have been useful if they had been used as the basis of the book
to build up a picture of Haxe. Of course the code for these components does not compile
on Haxe 3. Not knowing how they were built does not help one to modify them. The same
comments apply to other examples in the book. The fact that Haxe was modified and the
code broken in not the fault of the authors. There is no attempt made to explain how Haxe
if better than actionscript. I could go on about missed opportunity etc.. I did not try the Neko
or JavaScript examples so I cannot comment. The part of the book relating to actionscript is
not really helpful.
