I have to agree with LAJ's assessment of the book. I got it today as a gift and I have to say, I'm quite impressed. This is no mere kid's book like I first envisioned it. This thing actually goes in-depth with basic human anatomy(muscle and skeletal structure, hands, portraits and action poses) and even delves into perspective, folds in clothes and lighting objects. It reads like a regular artbook and I'm really surprised at what I saw. It's definitely worth picking up - not to mention the art inside is to die for.
