Not everyone may appreciate the style of presentation but the information is some very good material for aspiring or established animators looking into character animation. It is mostly a study of motivation. I must add that the cd that came with this book is on crack. Actually I thourouly enjoyed it. If you ever tire of the book just pop the cd into your computer while you have some friends over. The aghast look on thier faces, as they watch these actors be attacked by unseen forces, is aboslutely priceless and well worth the cost of the cd.
