    Far from being written by a talented person, it can be quite useful for the first steps of the child. And the book is far less formulaic than others in the same range.

    A bit self-important and unnecessarily smart at times, but it was fun to see different styles. Probably useful for a beginner hobby artist.

    A good start on facial expressions The book goes over the fundamentals of drawing faces and later gets into facial expressions. Each artist brings their own individual art style and their drawing process of developing facial expressions. A good book to have in a cartoonist's library. Avoid the Kindle version of this book which has grainy images and the intro page that introduces the artists is unreadable.

    Very good for unprofessional animators and comic book artists like me.

    Pretty good The book was good but more for beginners. The illustrations were stylish and instructive. Not to mention funny. The level of expression of the drawings are awesome definitely good starter work.

    I enjoyed the diversity of style in the book and the input of different artists. The variety of characters was helpful in exploring different approaches.
