jeremy clark
:: macromedia flash product manager
* "Colin Moock is a giant in the Flash scripting arena - one of the few people qualified to write such a complete, authoritative reference guide to the Macromedia Flash scripting language. He has incredible insight into the inner-workings of ActionScript from a practical point of view, having worked with us to help shape and refine ActionScript."

* "In ActionScript: The Definitive Guide, Moock has created a resource that will last you from your first day at ActionScripting through until you're a guru, racking up the profits and living the high-life. The sheer volume of information in the book is astounding, but it's not just a technical reference; it's well taught and conveniently structured."
