Flash 4 Magic of 21 Flash projects that basically teach you the charms of Flash. It teaches you how to do cool stuff. Among the projects are a preloader with real progress bar, poll, guestbook, drag and drop interface and lava lamp. These projects are very enlightenening and the CD that comes with this book literally pays for itself. I'm not joking when I say that I would have payed the $36.00 for the CD alone. The CD is so good, that I think I'll start my review with it.
When you pop it in you get an autoplay, done in Flash, that lets you navigate the elements of the CD. This would have been a welcome feature to Mohler's book reviewed above, and it is hence very welcome in this Flash 4 Magic book's CD as the source codes are much more interesting. All twenty-one of the projects that ARE the book have their full source code on the CD. Also included are a bunch of 3rd-party software to help you with sound editing, image editing, html, and various Flash features. Through their autoplay system you can easily view the source code or actually watch the project run in it's entirety so you have an idea of what you're reading. Bottom line, this CD has been so helpful that I put it in a steel jewelcase.
