This book is a must-have resource for anyone interested in working with Generator. Mike, Phillip, and Chris not only know their stuff, but they did a great job at sharing their knowledge in a way that even a novice can understand. They are able to share their real-world experience, and make using Generator just a little (maybe even a lot?) more palatable for the average Flash user.

Want to learn Generator? This is it, bar none!
As a Generator and Flash trainer I always look for good material to add to class for future reading, this book will not only top the list but will be integrated into all future classes. Having used Generator since 1.0 I thought I knew many of the tricks but this book showed me a few that I have never seen before and will use immediately.
If nothing else know that the authors are top of their game and that the material for this book matches their excellence.

Format: Paperback
I was going to avoid reviewing this book because I'm too close to the authors and my copy was free so I thought I would be too biased, but the book merits a stellar review...bias aside.
Generator concepts are in bite size chunks and easy to follow, yet not so easy that they bore the reader. The book follows a natural progression in complexity and will be usefull to developers of all experience levels stepping up to the Generator plate.
The level at which the author's stand in the developer community gives them the opportunity to bestow their knowledge in "we know it all" manner, but instead they maintain a humbleness that says "hey, we're just developers like you who've had a lot more time on our hands."
Chock full of all the essentials, and the non-essentials, this book is a must have for the Generator developer (or the developer wanna-be) and looks to have a long shelf life.
Chris, Phil, Mike-nice work!

I have read many chapters of this book and I can't wait to tell how great this book is ! Its worth every single penny...
This book comes form the source i.e.Macromedia and it effectively tells you that Flash is just not making an animation now. Part 3- Deployment and Part 4-Advanced Topics of this book are just wonderful.Book also covers other third party tools that deliver dynamic flash content like Swift-Generator,Flash Turbine,Form2Flsh etc..
I think if you want to refer just one or two Flash-books which are complete in every respect then I think you just need this book and "Flash 5 - Dynamic Content Studio" from Friends of ED.
