One of the brightest stars in the Flash development world is a designer, Brendan Dawes. Go figure. DragSlideFade is the number one book on Action Scripting for non-programmers because he takes an at-times complex technology and makes it cool to learn for those of us who love actionscripting's power, but who can't stand those dull, gray programming books. If you're a professional designer who needs a thoughtful, visually stimulating access into ramping up on the power beneath Flash's hood, get this book.About the Author:
