I am a student @ SCAD, the college where the author teaches rigging. I was one of the guinea pigs that she tested the material on and I have to tell you that her tutorials are clear and concise. Her Step by Step method helps you to learn the intricacies of animation's most hated subject and makes sure that you understand not only the basic steps that are taken, but also how they work. I have found no material on rigging as thorough and well-done as hers and have continually fallen back on her writings as a reference when things in the rigging world get sticky. I don't think you can go wrong purchasing this book.
