After buying this book alongside lingo in a nutshell, for only £25 I now have a complete reference to Director and Lingo. Excellent for those Director users who have only had experience with small projects using xtras. If you keep this book near your PC, you'll have every answer to every director related question within seconds.
For those of you who are experienced Director users, Epstein's book offers a desktop reference aid that is second to none. What is so great is that this book addresses all those problems that most Director users encounter but other publications don't provide the answers for; such as how to optimise projectors, cross-platform issues, database handling etc. If you buy this book and 'Lingo in a nutshell' too, you'll have a very handy reference kit!
