This textbook is a good as they come. It is well written, well organized and well supported with demo files. It's easily the best of its kind. It is perfect for the object oriented programming cl[censored] we have at my school. I recommend this as your first textbook for Flash game programming. You probably won't need another. This rental textbook is valuable and worthy, the book was in the condition it was said and I am extremely satisfied with dealing with ecampus.
