Books with a Beu

Jamie Beu, owner and co-author (with his wife) of CatholicFamily.info, is a "cradle Catholic", devoted husband, and father of two girls. He is a regular contributor to his parish newsletter, as well as an impassioned defender of the faith who is able to both support and challenge others as necessary -- all in an effort to build-up Christ's Kingdom on Earth. To this end, he does a lot of reading - not just of religious books (for education and research), but also of secular books, both to decompress as well as to keep a finger on the pulse of pop culture (the better to relate to others, as well as to help restore the culture).

Flash Games Studio

Flash 5 Games Studio - Sham Bhangal, David Doull, Justin Everett-Church This book seemed to cover quite a few of the general concepts of what goes into a game. It even covered how to use "the software" to develop Flash games. The problem is: it never told what that software is!

Nowhere in the book does it mention the development software used, nor does it mention where to find an integrated development environment (IDE) for writing Flash programs. (I can only assume they used DreamWeaver, but you'd never know without having some background in Flash in the first place.)

Aside from that, the writing seems okay, but I'm still reading it, without any idea of what program they are using to create these Flash games.
