Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This entry-level tutorial uses a visual tutorial model to teach you the core knowledge you need to get started with Flash MX. It's packed with images and worked examples, and is aimed at the reader who prefers to learn by example and 'play' rather than by following a strict tutorial route. This book is completely modular, so you can read it in any order you like, and come back to specific modules for reference purposes later.

About the Author

Glen Rhodes started his mind going early in life, when he was about 4 years old. At that age, Glen began playing the piano, which was sitting unused in his family's house. He's been playing ever since. Later, in 1997, Glen co-wrote a full-length musical called Chrystanthia. Somewhere along the way, he picked up game programming as a hobby, and eventually ended up making games professionally for home console systems. Then, in 1998, Glen discovered how he could take all my experiences and combine them, when he discovered Flash. The rest is history. Glen shares his ideas on his website, GlenRhodes.com.

By A Customer on October 26, 2002
In some quarters of the web design community, Flash is still seen as a great animation tool, but its other nature as a fully-fledged web application environment is barely comprehended.
In other quarters, designers are still using Flash in the most basic way, as a straight-through animation tool, but simple scripting that might nicely spice up an animation remains a mystery, and even tweens are a worry.
For too long in Flash's early days there were too few, in fact almost no, books about it. Then the long drought became a flood, and there are hundreds now. I am not complaining - the era when those who had puzzled out some obscure mystery were keen to show it off but refused to explain it was a frustrating one.
But now, when a designer wanders into a big city bookshop and claps eyes on all those big thick books on Flash, whose titles link Flash with daunting words like Applications and ActionScript, eyes are apt to glaze over to mutterings of "later, later, one day...."
What has been badly needed is an easy introduction to the latest version of Flash, written with clarity and respect, amply illustrated, structured so readers can easily dip in and out to grab some pearl of wisdom that can be applied to the job in hand, and that invites repeated perusal. What we needed has now arrived, and Macromedia Flash MX Express is it.
Designers are visual people, and they need their books well illustrated with screenshots and examples. Flash MX Express includes so many that it has a 2-column layout - one for text and one for images. Illustrations are annotated and captioned where necessary, and there is a reasonable balance between screenshots made on Mac and Windows computers.

This book can teach authors and publishers as much about producing quality learning references as it can teach you about FLASH MX. Great for the beginner. This book doesn't waste your time with hand holding excersises that take forever to complete. At 333pages you'll be up to speed in no time. Each page is 2 columns one column text the other pictures. So it could be said that this book is actually 116 pages as apposed to the other 400 - 700 page volumes available on FLASH. Get it and Get it today. This book is the only book I would recomend for beginners along with a couple of hours on [the website].

This book suffers from the basic mistakes that the early books on Flash had. Animation is only taught later in the book and some of the most exciting features are not covered. By the time the reader gets to anything interesting, he/she will have lost any interest or looked for a different book. This is the kind of book that challenges any novice to go beyond the first 30 pages. Some do, many don't. And the book still gets sold. It also helps to sell more Flash books, since the reader will often think the problem lies with himself/herself. Not too bad?
