I think it's a great book, exactly the kind of thing that you need when you are starting out in illustration, really informative and helpful.
This is a comprehensive book, and along with its glossy pages and accessible layout, it's a winner for anyone you know, including students, seriously considering the profession.
[The authors] understand their subject and audience perfectly and do a wonderful job in communicating one to the other.
I never make my students buy books, unless they are books they'll keep on their shelves after graduating. This is one of those exceptions
