Default Disappointed in End Chapters

I have to agree with the other comments people made regarding Chapter 12. Chapter 12 was a major disappointment. I as well buy books such as this one for project examples to help me understand and work through the subject matter. Flash working with Android and SQL is a very interesting topic to me and I am very disappointed in how Chapter 12 was set out. Chapter 12 does not relate SQL to Flash; it is just a general discussion about SQL, which I can get in any book unrelated to Flash, which is contrary to the reason I book a book about Flash and its relationship to Android.

The book is very good through Chapter 10, but it appears the author just got tired or lazy thereafter. I would prefer all project examples be developed from scratch with all code available. I had to look and find the "greensock" code; there was no mention in the book about downloading it and it wasn't available on the web site. I had to download the "Minimal Comps", which the author directed its location in the book, but why not included it with other code on the author's site. I had to search out the "Droid Sans" fonts, so certain project examples would work. And the "AndroidAppTemp" files with the "KevinHoyt" AS files were lazy; the buttons and other objects should have been developed from scratch with available code, to make it easier to follow along with project examples.

Chapter 11 was another major disappointment as I could get nothing to work right with the two project examples in the book.
