I bought this book with the impression that it had the files needed to be able to work through the projects. I was unable to find the motionstart.tif file which was indicated to be used to start the first project. After an hour searching for it I started flipping through the book looking to see if there was anything I could use. Not one project listed specifically which program to use to open up the files on the CD. I tried to use the 3rd party programs which were included with the CD. None of them matched up with how the examples looked in the book. I would love to have been able to learn what the book listed but have not been able to use any of it. This book is definately NOT beginner friendly.

Now see, this is an example of using the WOW label to sell almost anything! If it says WOW, I'm looking for some new, slick, seldom seen techniques or examples. I mean, that's what WOW used to mean in the graphic book section. Alas, the term has been diluted to just a slick marketing sound bite. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING in this book can't be found in the Flash help menu, or doing a quick Google search. When I read through this thing, all I could say was, "WOW, ain't nuthin' in here"!

Colin Smith should stick to trying to "Wow" people with his Photoshop trickery. This book includes nothing new or "Wow" in Flash.

The book is a bunch of gimmicky techniques that anyone who uses Flash already knows( but hopefully no longer uses). What is even more disheartening is he manages to make his Flash examples look as dated as his Photoshop sites, with high-tech silver gradient interfaces, etc.

My advice save your money, and hope that Colin Smith get's an new idea, before he writes another book.
