I took a look at this book and found that it really wasnt any more helpful than the proggy's
manual, especially for the
intermediate to advanced user. Although I did not have a chance to load the CD that comes with the
book It really wasnt anything more than a glorified manual. I found the interactive tutorials that
come with Flash3 the most pactical for learning FLash2/3.

Of course Im always skeptical about third party published books, They seem most of the time to be
the manual that comes
with the software, just in differently worded and maybe a few extra basic tuts and tons of clipart
that I dont recomend using on a professional project anyway. I would have been more interested if
the book was almost nothing but advanced step by step tutorials and techniques rather than just
re-explaining the software and telling what it can do, which is what it seems Ken's
book did.
