Why Get it?
The Animator's Survival Kit is the one book we recommend that all animators buy. There are many books on animation, but the ASK is the best. To see our full reading list for our new students, see this blog post.
Is it a book about Maya animation?
No, the ASK not a book about computer animation. It won't teach you anything about software. But it will teach you pretty much everything you need to know about the art of animation; how to master timing, spacing - and performance.
Can I read a review of the digital ASK?
