I think that this is the must-have book for serious Flex developers.
Mike Glazer
Second, it felt like a good chunk of the book covered messaging with LiveCycle, and had an overall Java-centric slant to it.
Richard S Rodecker
It is written with a very practical approach and provides solid examples.

Just finish reading the last book from Yakov Fain, Victor Rasputnis and Anatole Tartakovsky.
Book, is quite a bit of a new revamp from first book of same authors, I love the way they write and in a level of how they manage the subject of each chapter.
And as I know them since 2004 not good enough to retribution to them and to you a book review about it.

The book itself it's worth enough just because of chapter 5,7 and 8. I will detail later bellow.

The Chapter 6 it's interesting but doubt with some aspect for example a deep example of using GraniteDS, WebOrb for Java where has many options to who uses Java in the back-end. Code-gen, Data Sync, EBJ3 support, among other improvements that product changed from past years. It should show a much more examples of integration, not just WebOrb but cover also ColdFusion which is missing too in the chapter.

On Chapter 5 I liked the way they talk about resending the channel back which is not very well documented in the official BlazeDS developer guide. That's made a chapter worth enough just to clarify that for anyone who buys this book.

On Chapter 7 will help you with modules, but don't to except much from it, it's still a thing that we need to handle it, but not 100% that will works fine. But this chapter definitely will help you pass throw some of basic and intermediate problems in real life projects, There's also a just little detail that authors could added on the book where is the Potomac aka. OSGi in Flex application, where it's a seamless integration OSGi on Flex apps, that could be added to the book, specially if you're a Java developer, you're used to use OSGi on yours first class projects.

Very clearly written with lots of in-depth material and plenty of references to chase up on the web. It starts out assuming that you are writing database line of business applications rather than websites. If you are a professional developer writing business systems, this is the most relevant and clearly written Flex book that I have read. The technical nature of the material and the fast moving field will make this book out of date fairly quickly however, so if you are reading this positive review in 2012, you should probably temper it somewhat.

Overall, this book has a lot of really useful info that you won't find in other Flex books...actually a lot of the content I haven't seen anywhere at all, so props for that. Chapter 7's tip on bootstrapping libraries as applications is very slick, and exactly the type of thing I expected from this book.

There were a few points I didn't really like as well. First, the book starts up comparing Flex frameworks and talking about some design patterns. I'm taking the point of view that the book is supposed to cover advanced topics for advanced Flex developers, so the target audience should already have a good handle on these things...so the first couple of chapters are basically wasted content, and could have been put to better use (did we really need a section on embeddng content with SWFObject?)

Second, it felt like a good chunk of the book covered messaging with LiveCycle, and had an overall Java-centric slant to it. I guess in this case it's just a matter of what the author's typical development scenario is like versus my own. Some parts were irrelevant, but generally when I see too much of a Java influence in these books and tutorials and such, my eyes tend to glaze over and I really start to tune out. I really would have like to seen more focus on things like custom Ant builds and continuous integration...generally an expansion on a lot of the content of chapter 4 that was glossed over.

Overall though, great job by the authors. Great tips, great code samples...if you're doing, or are looking to do, any sort of serious Flex development beyond the basics I'd highly recommend it.

We are new to Flex, but have 20+ years with development and languages like C, C++ and Java. Flex seemed a bit odd at first when compared to Java and C++. How do you create an application with 150 view states that is managable? After a lot of searching, this book had some real life answers. It is written with a very practical approach and provides solid examples.
