No lessons - "this is how you use this, this is how you use that...",
This review is from: Macromedia Flash 8 for Windows & Macintosh (Paperback)I bought this book to learn Flash...and I was dissapointed. There are no lessons, it's pretty much a user's manual. "Here is the brush tool and this is how you use it. This is the fill button and how you use it. Now, draw a line as mentioned in section 2." If you like learning a program function by function, then this book is for you. I'm going to exchange this book for sams teach yourself Flash 8 as it has lessons and you learn to use the program as a whole.
Great book to get you started with Flash,

This review is from: Macromedia Flash 8 for Windows & Macintosh (Paperback)This is the first book that I bought to learn Flash. It introduced all the functionality of Macromedia Flash 8, and I still keep it as a handy reference.
This review is from: Macromedia Flash 8 for Windows & Macintosh (Paperback)I hate Flash. I bought this book to help me with flash. It was helpful and I started to understand the basics of flash. This is a must have for anyone getting into flash. I used this book but was unfortunately still not able to successfully learn flash, I guess flash and I will never get along, but I have faith in you that this book will help
