Reader review(s):

In a word? NO!!, August 31, 2001
Let's just say I'm glad I got a free review copy of this book from the publishers. While SAMS other Flash 5 book (Flash 5 in 24 Hours) is very well-written, this one is not only completely and utterly useless, but intelligence-insulting.
Yes, I honestly read the book cover to cover, and have compared it to over a dozen other Flash books I've read. There's no indication anywhere on this book's covers that the minimum reading age is around six, and there's no way the other "reviewers" took as long as 2 weeks to read it. I sincerely feel sorry for anyone who bought this book.

Wow!, July 21, 2001
Wow! I never knew it was so easy to learn flash! Or maybe it's just because it's your book. It's very easy and understandable ... ! And it's especially for the beginner. But people who are advanced will also find this useful because it's got some advanced stuff... JUST BUY IT!!!

Incredible Journey within 2 Weeks, April 15, 2001
This book was so simple and easy, even incredible! I finished reading within 2 weeks, and now I can use "Flash 5" to design my homepages.
