It focuses on what's new and what's important, describing the new features, demonstrating how to use them, and discussing what they mean in the bigger Flash MX/web design perspective.

Flash MX is a seriously powerful tool with a wealth of new features, including a new interface, mightily reinforced ActionScript capabilities, enhanced video and multimedia support, accessibility and usability elements, and a formidable object-based programming paradigm that might change the way you think about Flash and ActionScript.
