A great book that helps you flesh out your characters. It has lots of examples to help you understand and helpful questions that help writer's learn more about their characters' backgrounds, childhoods, apppearences, and other facets of personality to create a well-rounded character. It's well worth the money in my opinion. This a book to buy if you're serious about creating likable characters or improving your writing.

I just wish they had a website where I could download the templates.

It lays out steps to help you create characters that are complete with a back story and gives you a better understanding of who you want your characters to be and how they will behave in your imagined world. I found it very helpful in creating people that were believable.
