If you know Rails and Flex, and if you are desperately looking for a book that can guide you to Integrate Flex and Rails, then this is the book to buy.

* Firstly, I would like to appreciate the authors for the sample code published in GitHub. They are ready to serve and very well organized.

* It has a right combination of addressing Flex and Rails. This book can sure help you to build enterprise level Flex based application with Rails backend.

* Got lots of tips, collections and recipes that you may not find easily in Internet

* Chapter 8 is very useful in getting an overview of Cairngorm and PureMVC, and the sample codes were also driven with it.

* Has a detailed Chapter on Testing using Fluint, something that is important for developers who loves TDD/Agile

* One thing I very much liked the quality of the sample codes, it address common use-case, well structured. Best of all, the authors updates the code at their blog

* While the first part of the book gives conceptual details & foundations, the second part of the book gives useful recipes. Especially Authenticating, server push with Juggernaut, File Upload and so on.

* Finally, its worth buying.
