The Animator's Survival Kit: A Working Manual of M&hellip by Richard Williams

As an animation student, I can't recommend this book highly enough if you seriously want to improve your character animation skills. It really opened my eyes as to how much I still have to learn. This book should be on the top of every animators book list, and have a permenant home on their desk.
Focusing entirely on traditional animation techniques, the advice it offers translates perfectly to all mediums from hand drawn animation to 3D computer animation to whatever else you do.

If you like chilled electronica, then you couldn't do much better than 'Eclipse'
