At long last, here's a book with the pure intent of helping you squeeze more entertaining bits out of Flash. If you've ever dreamt of creating your own animated cartoon, this book is a must read.

* Build bandwidth-stingy digital puppets
* Master the walkcycle and other intricate techniques
* Craft a strong story and dynamic characters
