I was very excited to get started with a design drawing class...so, I rented this as it would be my textbook. The book presents information and exercises in a manner that has left me confused and frustrated. Exercises about perspective before perspective is introduced, overly simplied to non-existent instructions in some areas, and too much information in other areas. I understand from what the author wrote in his introduction that he was attempting to bridge the gap between too much technical information and enough to “learn to sketch.” In my opinion he didn’t do that in this book. I have no idea why the book is so expensive...there appear to be many other design sketch books with better reviews at reasonable costs. If I could have picked a book to learn about design sketching, this wouldn’t have been it.
