Another Flash-FLEX question - design books?

I promise this isn't related to my previous Flash question - just coincidence.

Are there books people would recommend that talk about how to create
good designs in Flash/FLEX. For example, there appear to be
particular ways one has to work with CSS to get the effect one might
want. And there is a particular widget set that has certain
affordances, some of which seem better than others. I'm looking more
for some "how to" and "best practices" information than I am general
design pattern type stuff. But I'll take what I can get.

Thanks in advance,
--Alan

How do you avoid canned designs?

Hi,

When you work on two sites that that share the same goals, top tasks
and audience; would try to come up with THE optimal architecture and
interactions for both and just play around with their
aesthetics/branding to make them look different? or would you
experiment with each of them until they end up with different layouts
that work?

This is becoming an issue with some of my projects, since I keep
reusing layouts that worked.

User Product Reviews: Showing only positive ones - good or bad?

We sell software where I work. We're looking to integrate user reviews that we get through a third party service (Zueberance, I think) into our product pages.

The business stakeholder wants us to only show positive/glowing reviews.

I have an ehtical problem with that as I feel it's misleading. I also think it looks odd when scanning a list of only 4 and 5 star reviews... As a user, I think, "Sooo... where are some of the more 'negative' reviews?"
