Default Advise choosing Flex book

Hi guys.

At a moment I've met a hard choise which Flex 3 book to choose. What I need from the book is not all those "learn how to put tags and feel happy". My requirement to book is it should contain the very deep explanation of the entire flex process. Complete component instantiation lifecycle, mechanisms of invalidations, updates and all the things. A very detailed one. Probably some of you guys met some sort of this book? I'd appreciate any suggestions.

Till any recommendations this one is my candidate:

I don't know of any book that takes you trough what you want. All the books take you trough the components and what where to put with examples... I don't think there's a book out there that explores Flex that deeply and explain how the framework actually works... but I might be wrong, although I read more than 5-6 books on Flex and I didn't encounter a book that would explain the Flex framework in depth...

But if you do find something than don't forget to post a link because I'd be interested in reading up on this stuff too.

I think fx.barrett is right.

This covers the lifecycle - although its not at book-level detail by any stretch.
