Hi all
I want to go deeper into flash, like learning AS and better animation.

what I really need is a good book which I can buy, but I want the book to do certain things

Flash Mx or Flash Mx 2k4 compatible.
teach me with tutorials and explanations
teach me database integration (flash-php)
flash and XML (to use it, and how it works)
talk through everything easily, so I can understand it all :P

in other words the more advanced side of flash.
i have seen some books which show you how to create a flash message board, that sounds good, but i dont remember the name of the book

I want to buy it online, or in a shop if i can.
Im in the uk too, so only £ ;)

please let me know, through user experiences and opinions

thanks

Not really a book but it should be...
More times than not I go either to Kirupa or Ozzu's search & add "lostinbeta" to the "by author" section :wink:

People should read more books :shock: Sure looking up information from someone who knows it all works, but really getting down to learning it yourself is the best method... That's my 2 cents :evil:

Books are written by people are they not ?
Tinkering with things yourself IS the best way to get a feel for somthing.
Books are great to have for things like hardware and cooking (stuff you cant do online)
But when it comes to programing/scripting(stuff thats all about online), there is no better book then that which is the internet.... That's my 1.2 cents :D (im a penny pincher :P )

Give me a break :) I'll go tinker with my Hot pocket then throw that sucker in the nuker.... :D Sure looking online is a great method for looking stuff up but I just like books for quick easy reference... And I'll read the whole sucker and give the comp a break sometimes :x Not that I really like to do that :oops: I love to look up stuff online but code can be written in different ways based on the coder himself.

That's my quarter pounder (love fast food) :P
