Mainly for beginners.
There's a first part, for the absolute beginner, describing the fundamentals about head drawing.
The second part, the main one, is the more interesting : 41 "expressions", with tutorials (4 or 5 steps). The characters (10) are really good and that's the main justification for the 4 stars. In this part of the book, only the faces are drawn.
There's a third part, about "storytelling" that contains 10 other tutorials with complete scenes (not just faces). It hs a few pages about framing, body language, etc. Very superficial. I would have preferred more "faces".
This may not be a "serious" book for studying expressions (look for Gary Faigin's "The Artist Complete Guide to Facial Expression") and there's not so much material. But it was a lot of fun !

Covers the basics that go into what is an expression, and as for truth in advertising, what you see on the cover is what you get, expressions rendered through cartoonish and sequential art style graphics, and which facial features to exaggerate to get what you need.

I'd have prefered a book with more emphasis on actual expressions, with a smaller cartoonish/comic feel section to show how real expressions can be exaggerated to remove all doubt to the emotion conveyed but again, i can't say they lied to me on what this book does.

A must buy for those struggling to make faces. Shows how to put emotions in faces with many examples. This is mostly recommended for beginners as the book explains and teaches how to make a face.

Wish that there could've been more content on sketches made from the authors, but still a great book.
