I guess it was a good book, but my brother got it and i thought the drawing style was more western than most actual manga. Id say that if you wanted to draw a more realistic, cartoonish drawing, then this is the right book. But i wouldnt actually call it manga, so if you want manga, i dont reccommend this book.
