Start by taking out a fresh envelope, putting $1,000 inside, and sending it to New Riders c/o Shane Elliott. Okay, now you're ready to start the book. Actually, as with any other book, you might think you should begin by flipping to the first page of the tips and going from there. However, this book was not intended to be read straight through. Ultimately, I wrote the book to be a categorized collection of tips, and you can jump from one page to the next to find the kind of stuff you need without having to read through the entire book. You don't need any special software (other than Flash MX 2004, of course); there's no CD-ROM included with a bunch of tutorials that can be confusing and hard to manage.
Keep in mind that I spell out each step for each tip, so if you're an avid Flash user, don't get frustrated if you see (CTRL-F8) every time I mention converting something to a symbol. The tips are designed to operate completely on their own, and most of them don't require you to even have read anything else in the book to be effective. Just flip to any page of the book and start applying these useful hints. It's as simple as that.
