    well, I don't know of any good books offhand. What I do know is that Peachpit Press puts out a lot of books for mac users, so you might check out what they have to offer. Sorry that I don't know the URL.

    Well the training books authorized from the respective software companies have served me quite well, Macromedia's Training from the Source line, and Adobe's Classroom In A Book. Each offer titles devoted to one specific software that does a good job of covering the software to make you feel more comfortable working in it. Like many books they can be expensive, and Amazon would be a good place to get the cheapest price and read many helpful reviews from customers. Also if you are a student, you can do to AcademicSuperstore.com and save some money on buying a package of all the Adobe and Macromedia books at one time.
