   You will learn from this book but be patient with yourself!
I admit, I was a little frustrated the first day I used this book due to my impatience with my own skills. I was amazed at how quickly this book taught me to draw heads on the first day in different angles, but on the same day I tried many other things due to excitement. My advice is to work SLOW and take it at your own pace. I am still reading this book and can say that taking time to practice and reading the material has helped me so much! I am now drawing hair along with the heads and taking it later for the eyes, nose, ears and other small facial details.
   Not perfect for beginners, but good enough
The author does not really take you step by step by the hand on how to draw the face. Rather, it teaches you the broad concepts and a few core steps to try to get you to figure out the rest on your own. This can be an intimidating experience for a complete novice. Fortunately, the book is very inviting to draw, and so ends up drawing, which is the important bit. The attached image is the result of walking for about 4 months through this book, bit by bit, every day. It still sucks, but is better than when I started, I guess it is the kind of book that will kickstart your study of faces for a lifetime.
   Not For Beginners
This book does not even go over proportions of the face. At least not in the beginning. The first cases have you tracing full faces without explaining any techniques. Not very helpful.
   Looks like a GREAT book!...
Just got this... so I should not say 5-stars yet... but I am very impressed with its curb appeal... and excited to use it!... there are tons of illustrations. Much of it in a workbook style, so that one can practice as you go. It is all personal size print with none of the writer's decent handwriting... I am not familiar with this certain author... but his approach seems very appealing! ''
Today's book came. I am sort of an experienced artist, but in the face I am never good. I don 't know if this would be superferous, but it isn 't! There are more angles and a wider range of subjects, so that it will be a valuable addition to the course. If you ever need additional help with a very strong Facebook group, I recommend drawing and painting portraits with Rebecca Tillman Young. I still have much to go, but have made great improvements.
   My favorite drawing book
I have seven drawing books and this is the best one of them. I am already better and have completed the first section only. Does not use graph lines and hence is a more free style of drawing.
   a gem
This book is a treasure. There are prominent books that are only mediocre. Eventually, I found a really good book of art. It's like a gem to discover. I plan to buy more books by Jake Spicer.
   Targeted Practice for Serious Learners
I decided to draw as an adult learning to draw this year. I wanted to read a book to accelerate my learning. It is for serious learners, which is what I was looking for. I wish there was a book like this for figure drawing just like this. I love the format and idea that this is your sketchpad, but I did not take the authors'advice about drawing in the book and using it as my sketchpad. This feels too finite and stressful and I can't go back through the book later. I have my own sketchpad that I use only for this book. The great thing about drawing in the book is that it forces you to move on and draw once. Don 't get stuck if things are perfect. I already love doing this, my drawings have already improved. Once you draw, don 't stress and move on.
