It shows a great variety of movements and body types and how different characteristics (personality or physical) influence the principles of animation. While you can read about these principles and see something like a cube act them out, the sheer number of different examples showing the timing and spacing on a timeline is a huge, huge asset that does a great job bringing it all home and making these concepts a very visual and reinforced experience.
I called an antiators group and the fellow tells me he didnt like.
What this book has is a lot of technical drawings and concepts of various walks and actions.
As you flip the author shares his life journey and the many people that taught him things.
As he shows you a walk he explains why you would add the style without a hard formula (by saying "lets try" and "what if") giving you the basis of the cycle while leaving room for creativity.
I loved this book, but I am more of a logical thinker.
(some additions have promotional DVD inside - this one doesn't)
