Recommended books for learning AS3

I have provided a list of books for learning Actionscript 3.0. These books are suitable for beginners and advanced users of Actionscript. If you are completely new to Actionscript 3.0 then I recommend the first three books in the following list below.

Learning ActionScript 3.0 (A Beginner's Guide) by Rich Shupe and Zevan Rosser

This is a good book for people who are new to programming in Actionscript 3.0. The book is well organised and fully illustrated in colour. An addition feature of this book is that it slowly transitions from simple programming into more advanced Object-Oriented programming. Overall, this is a great resource to start learning Actionscript 3.0.

Essential ActionScript 3.0 by Colin Moock

This book covers Actionscript 3.0 in more depth from the Learning Actionscript 3.0 book, and is very clearly written. If you already have some knowledge of Actionscript then this book is for you. Although it is also suitable for beginners as it is written in away which assumes the reader has no prior knowledge to Actionscript.

Object-Oriented ActionScript 3.0
by Todd Yard, Peter Elst, Sas Jacobs

This book is for experienced Actionscript users. The book starts with a comprehensive introduction into Actionscript and Object oriented programming. Then the book moves onto design patterns and interfaces which allow you to design and implement applications in Actionscript 3.0.

Actionscript 3.0 Game programming university by Gary Rosenzweig

This book is great if you are interested in programming games in Actionscript 3.0. The book starts with a small introduction into Actionscipt 3.0, and then lead onto a variety of different games. Overall this book is well written and clearly explained.
