Borrowed the latest edition with DVD from library and bought an used copy. Fun to read from many points of view. Explained keys aspects and thoughts behind the curves and colors.

I took a course of 3D and 2D animation and this book was on my shopping list. The price in the stores was ridiculous! I couldn't afford this book! So I decided to check on Amazon if they had it and they did. At a ridiculous affordable price! Amazon saved me just like Richard Williams did for my animation classes!

I can't belive I didn't buy this book sooner. I can't believe I haven't reviewed this book sooner. I graduated with a 4 year university degree in classical, traditional animation and this book actually provided more information than my college education. I got it my senior year, just in time for my thesis. His ability to simplify exposure sheets is worth its weight in gold. This book put into practice will give any student a head start. An earlier review said the only reason you shouldn't buy this book is due to bankruptcy. I agree. Wholeheartedly. I can't even believe you are sitting here reading this review instead of buying it. QUICK! BUY IT! You're wasting time that could be used reading it!

This book is essential if you're just getting started in animation, and I suspect it would prove equally useful to someone with experience too.
It's well-written, funny, and accessible. It's worth reading just for William's anecdotes about the business and the people.
It covers the history of animation in such a way that modern techniques make sense within context. Most books treat the history in boring, unimaginative ways. Not Williams.
It offers a wealth of practical, how-to information. Want to know how to make characters stride, using only two poses? Williams tells you. When should you use "ones" and "two's"? It's in there. How can you troubleshoot your work before you're too far into a project? He covers this too.
Williams doesn't just give you a toolbox full of tips and tricks though -- by the end of this book you'll understand _why_ things work the way they work. The result? You'll be ready to handle even the new and unexpected as you pursue animation.

I have been looking for a book like this for over a decade.
The detail is excellent.
The "fun to read" and "easy to understand style" of this book, is the cherry with whipped cream on top!
You will love this book and reach for it again and again and again.
Richard Willams book is a powerhouse of visual information.

When I bought this book I wasn't to sure how many times I was going to open it.. I have had this book for a few months now.. and it is one of the most used books in my library. I create 3D animation and the information in this book is amazing.. all I have to say is WALK CYCLE...
If there is any animation book to buy.. buy this one!
