Книга подходит для тех, кто хочет освоить перо и тушь, но никак для новичков в рисовании вообще, т.к. больший упор делается на практическую работу, а не на теорию (построение, композиция упоминается вскользь). Зато после проработки всех рисунков собственной рукой можно с уверенностью сказать, что достиг определенных результатов.
Советую читать после ее же "Sketching Your Favorite Subjects in Pen & Ink". Здесь теория дана более широко.

What's most useful about this book is information on how to draw various textures. On the other hand, it's nothing you would not find on YouTube, so I'm not entirely sure if it's worth paying for.

The other good thing is a recommendation to look into ink wash painting, which I just might do.

I learned a lot about drawing from this book. Although it's supposed to teach about pen and ink, I was able to get some great ideas from it for drawing with graphite pencils. Unfortunately for me, I'm not really good with ink. It seems that I need an eraser a lot more often than I care to admit.

Wow. I must say, I love to draw with this. It has drawings that I try to imitate, and it has really made me a better artist.

I got this book from the library last week and went through many of the lessons and learned quite a bit. Several drawings I completed looked like replicas of the ones in the book.
