I'm learning Flash and with that comes the anxiety of learning computer coding. Scary business, right? Not now! Actionscript can be pretty intimidating. I know it was for me, but from the moment I opened Foundation Actionscript, I was relieved at how easy it could be. The book reads very well and very simple, teaching the basics and building on that in an efficient manner. This book is a treasure for all Flash-lovers. It makes learning actionscripting a cinch. Before you know it, you're building fun, eye-catching, web pages that you never thought was possible. Don't let actionscript make you feel uncomfortable, ease yourself with Foundation Actionscript.

Macromedia Flash has set new standards in web motion graphics. Version 5, due for release in late Summer 2000, will be the next and best version out there, pushing Flash's capabilities even further and demanding a new level of expertise from Flash artists. Data from NPD, the parent company of Media Metrix, reports that over 90% of the Web population, or over 220 million users, can now view Macromedia Flash content. As the Flash audience grows, so it expects higher standards of web design dynamic content, sound and video, interactivity as the norm. Every Flash developer has to be ready to meet that challenge or risk being yesterday's news.

Review by jbelushi98
For anyone with a good grasp of the basics of flash, this book is an indispensable stepping stone. Beginning with the concepts of building complexity and working with video and 3d, it goes on to dive into ActionScripting. From communicating with other programs to manipulating data, this book leads you throught in the clear and insightful methods common to the visual quickstart series. Unlike many flash books, this is not just a display of other artists' work but rather a well organized and structured learning tool.

This book presents a comprehensive overview of Flash 5 actionscripting. The author uses language that is easy to follow (great for the non-developer types like me) and keeps each lesson interesting. I would recommend this book to anyone new to actionscripting, looking to sharpen their actionscripting skills, or making the transition from Flash 4 to Flash 5.
