The first Flash book arrived...

... and I am devouring it! The title is The Art of Cartooning with Flash and I am finding the tutorials much easier to understand than the original manual. In attempting to complete the tutorials, I am finding that it is similiar to a puzzle. The author walks you thru a lesson, making you actually use the tools and components of the software to get there, and then leaves you in a "sticking point" which you must figure out how to get out of on your own. It makes you think. It makes you learn.
... the exercises in this book are better than the one's in the standard issue tutorial. They are not as dry and lacklustrer as the Macromedia tutorials. I really want to continue. More on this subject to come!
