HobbyPress have written and published a book on Construct - 'Practical Tips & Techniques'. That's kinda cool I guess, so maybe check it out and see if you think it looks good :)

Looking at the TOC this book appears to be tailored for absolute beginners (of course). Although it seems to cover some more advanced issues. Interesting. I'm especially curious about these two paragraphs:

WHY WOULD ONE PREFER CONSTRUCT OVER GM8 FOR GAME CREATION?

WHY WOULD ONE PREFER CONSTRUCT OVER MMF2 FOR GAME CREATION?
