Foundation Actionscript 3.0 Animation: Making Things Move! by Keith Peters is regularly mentioned in posts here on Activetuts+. It's an awesome reference for anyone interested in animating using ActionScript 3.0.
This week, we're giving away a copy to one lucky @activetuts twitter follower, so they can see for themselves! Off you go then, you know the drill..
