I have been a fine art painter and drawing and painting instructor for well over a decade. I work in the field of traditional realistic art where the study and accurate depiction of anatomy is taken very seriously. I have never seen a worse anatomy book than this one. There is almost no descriptive or helpful text, but the worse sin by far is that the illustrations are terrible in the extreme. They often exhibit incorrect proportions, and are always horribly executed. As a manual intended for artists it is laughable and certainly sad. For anyone seeking anatomical knowledge it is at best misleading. Probably any other anatomy book out there is better than this one. A friend actually brought this book to me because she could not believe the poor quality. It is in fact almost shockingly bad. Books like this should not get printed. I gave it one star only because no stars was not an option. The serious artist, art student, or student of anatomy should look elsewhere for their information.
