The target audience for this book is clearly young boys who like to draw and like pirates but the book ignores that audience most of the time with boring drawings, no color, and lots of "history lesson" text. Please. If I wanted to know the history of pirates, I'd pick up a history book, not a drawing book which should help me draw lots of cool pirates doing cool piratical things. If you're still not convinced this book is so badly done, get this: Two full pages are devoted to drawing carpentry equipment, two more are devoted to drawing mugs, bowls and tankards. Another page is devoted to drawing dabloons and pieces-of-eight and how to get them historically accurate. Only one kind of ship is shown--a three-masted-frigate. No sloops which I thought were pirate mainstays.
Needless to say, I was thoroughly disappointed. I can't recommend a better book for pirate drawing because I haven't found one but I do like the Steve Miller / Bryan Baugh stuff like "Scared!" and "Swords and Sorcery" and "Hi-Ya!" if you want an idea of what I consider a good drawing book.
