Andre, What I like about books is that I can go back to them easily and find Gems, if there is a good index. Videos work for me, if they are short. It also depends on your target audience. If you are going for experienced Livecode programmers, I suspect a highly indexed online “Book” that is

I Agree, Books. For the most part the only videos I watch are music related. Other than that I read much faster. I watch a video only after the narrative needs additional details (car/electronics/instrument... repairs). Ralph DiMola IT Director Evergreen Information Services

Books. I read much faster than video playback, and a book allows me to skip around easily and look up topics of interest. I rarely have time to sit through a whole video unless it's very short. Books hold my interest better. I think younger people are used to receiving information differently.
