    The book goes very in depth about how to draw to faces and bodies. The reference pages give good ideas and help to fix that one error you may have made. It incorporates different styles so you can experiment with them and maybe make your own style. The book only had a few problems like text not lining up and the ends of sentences trailing to the next page but other than that it's very detailed and easy to use. If you combine this with his videos you can learn to draw very quickly Defenatly a 5 out of 5 stars!
