4.0 out of 5 stars It does provide me with a solid foundation in Director., February 23, 2000
By 
This review is from: Director 7 Demystified: The Official Guide to Macromedia Director, Lingo, and Shockwave with CDROM (Paperback)
I first bought Director 7 and Lingo Authorized with no background in Director. I only know Flash. I find it useful since the approach is a step by step tutorial. However after I finished all the exercises, I still have lots of unanswered questions. For example, how to use the Shockwave Multiusers server, and how to make more complex design with lingo, etc. I then read the official manuals, documentations and Director 7 Demystified. They do answer some of my questions. I find Director 7 Demystified can give me a more solid foundation of Director. It explains "why", not just tell you do this and do that. It also covers how to use the simple drawing function in the application. At the end of the book, there is a bigger section on lingo script.
I think Director 7 and Lingo Authorized is good for beginners who likes step by step tutorials. However for those who want to go deeper into it as well as lingo, you ought to read Director 7 Demystified too. Btw, Macromedia is famous for its support and learning site. The official documentation is also a very good source to learn, esp. their manual on the shockwave multiusers server. I cannot find much information about this server in most Director books.
