Bridgeman teaches everything that a figure drawing artist needs to know in a clear, concise, logical, inside out progression. He teaches the mechanical workings of the limbs in relation to their counterparts and even details the tendons and striations as never before. He avoids teaching a particular style by focusing on the anatomical correctness of the figure and not the way to draw. I learned more from this book than from any other book. Period.

This is Bridgman's best book, but considered that his others publications are of no use whatsoever, this is no great achievement.
The text is well done, but the illustrations are only a bit less confused than usual.
A beginner will learn something from this book, but why should he waste is time (and money) when better ones are available on the market?
