my two favorites where "Beginning Game Programing With Flash" by Dr. Lakshmi Prayaga & Hamsa Suri(this one is for AS3) and "Beginning Flash Game Programming for Dummies" by Andy Harris (this one is for AS2, and i liked it better but AS2 has a lot more limitations ans just is not as good, or as fast as AS3)

The books that teached me:

Essential Actionscript 3.0
Actionscript Animation

Both books are great, none of them is for games, but they will teach you everything you thing you need to know to develop games. As far as I remenber none of the two is intended to be used with a specific IDE so you can work with flash, Flex, FlashDevelop or wathever you want.

good luck on learning :bigsmile:
