Create rich HTML5 applications and websites by the end of the book!
The author seems to be both knowledgeable with using Flash, and HTML5, and explains the capabilities and limitations of Adobe Edge Animate, to publish HTML5 content, as compared to Flash. He also includes detailed information of what you can expect from Adobe Edge Animate vs. Flash, but does not require you to have ever used Flash.
