    Flash MX Book

    I'm looking for a Flash MX book, dealing specifically with intermediate/advanced actionscripting including some backend stuff.

    Can anyone give me some recommendations - cause there are a million books out there and I don't know which one to buy

    Thanks

    I'm holding off buying any books until ASDG 2 comes out

    Personally, there are only two Flash books on my shelf:

    1. AS the Definitive Guide by Mr. Moock. (and yes, i have the MX edition pre-odered).

    2. ActionScripting in Flash MX by Phillip Kerman (it's available now)

    The Moock book is more comprehensive as a reference book, and i use it most often, but Kerman's book kicks butt as an instructional reference. Even though i use AS the Definitive Guide almost every day, I think Kerman's book is far and above the best book out there to learn ActionScripting.

    Thanks for suggesting my book. I really think of Colin's book as a complement to mine (or vice versa). I mean, mine's not a reference. Mine simply tries to explain concepts in a way that is easy to understand. I don't try to "dumb things down" but rather explain it the way I understand.

    See the reviews at amazon and the recent review at flashmagazine.com:

    Thanks,
    Phillip
