    I just bought today and I happen to stumble upon it when I was looking at another manga book for beginners to see if I really wanted it and if it had enough detail and ten this book appeared, I started looking through it and was like this is exactly what I need, I already know how to draw its just that I need to polish my skills and I wanted to see if I could improve since I only taught myself and thus the book provided so many examples and carefully wrote it out and I say it is a really good book, very thick too.
