The Artist's Complete Guide to Facial Expressionby Gary Faigin
Artists love this book, the definitive guide to capturing facial expressions. In a carefully organized, easy-to-use format, author Gary Faigin shows readers the expressions created by individual facial muscles, then draws them together in a section devoted to the six basic human emotions: sadness, anger, joy, fear, disgust, and surprise. Each emotion is shown in steadily increasing intensity, and Faigin’s detailed renderings are supplemented by clear explanatory text, additional sketches, and finished work. An appendix includes yawning, wincing, and other physical reactions. Want to create portraits that capture the real person? Want to draw convincing illustrations? Want to show the range of human emotion in your artwork? Get The Artist’s Complete Guide to Facial Expression!

Well, I've be drawing for about seven years and I'm pretty good but, expressions is a bit more advanced territory. So this book gave me various and complex expressions to choose from that were pretty easy to follow. It gives me confidence to draw beyond my bondaries!!!!
this book is a great guide to drawing human emotions. everything is clearly explained, and it is clearly drawn. if you want to learn how to draw angst or disgust, laugher of sadness this book is the one to read
