OiReilly & Associates has published a new book aimed at Flash developers, "ActionScript Cookbook". Written by Joey Lott, the book is designed as a help resource for creating Flash MX scripts. According to OiReilly & Associates:
When faced with the choice of putting in long hours and pulling out their hair in frustration over a scripting project, or going home a little early because the project was accurately and concisely done, most Flash developers would opt for the latter scenario. Joey Lottis latest tome, "ActionScript Cookbook", is designed to help Flash MX developers be home in time for dinner while still impressing the powers-that-be at work with their coding prowess.
ActionScript has blossomed into a large and important language whose sheer volume of capabilities can be daunting. Because complex Flash issues can arise, cagey coders need to use all resources at their disposal to avoid and untangle tricky situations.
"ActionScript Cookbook" is bound to be one of the most well thumbed references in the ActionScript developeris library. Employing classic OiReilly Cookbook style, Lott guides scripters towards swift resolution of issues, while imparting practical techniques for resolving similar dilemmas in the future.
