Title: Macromedia Flash MX 2004 Hands-On Training (Hands on Training (H.O.T))
Publisher: Peachpit Press
Authors: Rosanna Yeung
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Comprehensive and eloquently written

Never before have I encountered such an eloquently written book that takes the complex intertwining web of design and programming and amalgamated them so fluidly into something that is not only intellectually digestable but delightfully savoring. If you are a novice or a guru, Rosanna Yeung has created a powerful new weapon that empowers you to revolutionize the web space with new innovations that combine design, animation and programming. In the tradition of the Lynda Weinmann Hand's on training series, this book can serve as the best alternative to an actual instructional classroom minus the drive time and limited pace. As E.B. White and Strunk's Elements of Style was to grammer and writting, Rosanna Yeung's H.O.T. Macromedia Flash MX 2004 is to web design.

No, you don't need Visual Studio.NET

That's categorically false! VS.NET is *not* necessary to work through this book. Jesse doesn't even start to get into Code-Behind until chapter 6, p199. This book admittedly has some code errors, but the author addresses these issues right away at his website... section. This is no doubt the best ASP.NET book on the market and I am thankful I trusted his fine reputation with other works (Like Programming C#). BUY THIS BOOK!

just want to see the other reviews

this is the stupidest review system I've ever seen... you have to post a review to view the other reviews... isn't the point of reviews to base your decision on buying a book?

Unbeatable Value

This books is bits and pieces taken from several others by the same publisher. I've found several of the examples and subjects useful, including those working with accessing databases including Access files from VB. If you like the style of any of these "chapters" you can find the original text and look for THAT full book. The best feature for programmers of earlier Basic language forms is the Reference at the back listing most of the Basic command functions, with syntax and explanations if not examples thereof. That feature has saved me lots of time. If you know Basic from earlier computers, this book will be helpful on that regard alone, as most books twice its price range omit such a reference guide...
