    The finest Sculpture book I've found

    If you are serious about learning to sculpt, or teaching sculpture, This is a must. If you start reading and you feel a little lost at first hang in there, that's just a sign you don't know everything and if you did you wouldn't need the book now would you? Seriously this book explains sculpture backward and forward. There is no easy way to mastery of any medium but this book will definitely answer so many questions about sculpture it is worth the price and time it takes to study it. Personally I have read it five or six times and use it for reference on every piece I work on. I wore my copy out so bad I have had the back spiral bound so I can use the same copy I have been highlighting in for the last 10 years. I can't say enough good about this book. Don't just read it, study it.
