Today I woke up to an email from Amazon.com informing me that Colin Moock's new book "Essential ActionScript 3.0" was going to be delayed until August 24th. The book is still listed on their site as available for pre-order without an estimated shipping date, and after checking Powell's Books (Portland's famous bookstore) and Borders' website, I have found that neither of them list an available date.
So if you are like me and have been waiting for this book to come out for months now... it looks like the wait will continue. Sadly, I have a feeling that due to Moock's overwhelming success with his prior books, many developers are waiting for the release to learn AS3. Because of this, I can't help but think that the delay in releasing this book has the potential to slow the overall adoption rate of AS3 in the interactive community.
