I’ve had this book on my radar for some time, and I’m glad to have finally gotten my hands on a copy. Joseph Labrecque’s “Flash Development for Android Cookbook” looks like it’s going to be perfect for anyone wishing to take the plunge with Android development using Flash. And to be perfectly honest, from what I’ve read so far, there’s plenty for those who’re already familiar with the platform too!

Joseph covers an incredible amount throughout the book’s 350 pages, with each recipe being concise and easy to understand. He’s also made a point of covering a range of IDE’s – Flash Professional, Flash Builder, Powerflasher FDT – ensuring that almost anyone can get up and running. By the end of the first chapter you’ll know how to configure the AIR SDK and be comfortable publishing content.

I’m thoroughly enjoying this one and I’ll let you know how I get on. At the rate I’m chomping through it, you probably won’t need to wait too long.
