The idea of this book is that Flash has come of age. It's obviously capable of employing sophisticated programming. It's also a rich medium that integrates sound, graphics, text, animation, and video (elements that can actually aid in communication, not just add gratuitous distractions). The infrastructure is ready too, because nearly every personal computer has Flash installed. Finally, it's about to come together because the Flash developers are aware of what they need to do: build applications.
Luckily for you, this book isn't filled with many more of my predictions for the future or analyses of the past. I'll try to be persuasive where necessary, but I'm going to assume you're on board with the idea of using Flash for rich Internet applications (RIAs). When it comes down to it, this book is really just about how to use the powerful features in Flash. I invested a lot of time studying , testing, and even helping to improve Flash MX 2004. My hope is this investment will reduce the time you spend getting up to speed.
