Loved this book for its "insider's" look at the toy sculpture industry. Steve's commentary illuminates the joys and sorrows of working as a sculptor. The how-to section is good too but if you want more of a detailed "how to", consider getting Tim Bruckner's book, Pop Sculpture: How to Sculpt Action Figures and Statues. Both books are essential to anyone looking at the professional toy sculpture industry.
