I had a less than pleasant arts teacher during my school time, so I am your typical "can't draw to save my life" adult now. Honestly, this book is awesome if you are a complete beginner. I'm not sure how sound some of the science is that they claim, but the exercises work wonders. Halfway through and my drawings look like actual drawings.
