"Great tool for transitioning into Flex 4" - by Fappy on 30-AUG-2010
Reviewer Rating: 1 star rating2 star rating3 star rating4 star rating5 star rating
The new Spark system is significantly different from the old MX ways, but this book makes the transition smooth and painless. I have a few minor gripes (the chapter on binding should have been much earlier, the "cookbook" style notwithstanding) but overall it's a great complement to the Flex 4 / AS3 online docs (which, as many have learned the hard way, often leave something to be desired).
