This book contains a wealth of information about the history of animation as well as the art and science of creating an animated film. This well written and very readable book reflects the hard earned experience and wisdom of a true expert in the field. The book is also chock full of useful and amusing illustrations by the author. No student or professional in the field of animation should consider his or her library complete without a copy of this book. But this book will not get dusty sitting on a shelf. It's a wonderful resource that you will want to refer to time and again.
