Flash 8 Essentials

Aug 04, 2006

This is going to be a very belated review on "Flash 8 Essentials (Flash 8 Essentials)":http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1590595327/104-2916545-1727903?v=glance&n=283155. Special Thanks to "Tink (Tink)":http://www.tink.ws/blog/ (Stephen Downs) for gifting me such a colorful book to review. Stephen is one of the authors along with - *Paul Barnes-Goggett, Glen Rhodes, Craig Swan, Matt Voerman and Todd Yard*.

Just as the title says, this book is about all the new essential features introduced in Flash 8. This is a not for absolute beginners nor for the highly advanced but for the majority average-to-good Flash Developer and Designers. You will be able to read the book from wherever you want and jump to the chapter of your choice; as all the chapters are self contained and deal with a particular feature of Flash 8. This is one helpful not to mention highly colorful book for Developers/Designers who have already been doing Flash and want to keep up with the new features in Flash 8. Well, I went through the book at a zippy speed trying to remind myself if I missed any special features learnt during the beta of Flash 8. The chapters were helpful in reminding you the features available in Flash 8 that you can harness.

Well, this is another good book for your Flash Books Collection!
