I received this book as a gift to kinda learn some things about the field animation scene I really want to get myself into and so far this book is extremely helpful. Levy is truly comedic and charismatic which this makes the book even more enjoyable and keeps you engaged while still learning the moves of the industry. He tosses in some personal stories to get some examples of what goes on behind the scenes and even gives you quite a few resources to check out for yourself to learn even more for I received this book as a gift to kinda learn some things about the field animation scene I really want to get myself into and so far this book is extremely helpful.

Enjoyable

I liked the way the book is put together, it does have a lot of common knowledge advice such as be on time, and be humble but the stories and history of some of the people discussed in the book inspired me to study them more in depth such as some of the 90s independent animators and the Czech puppet makers were very cool. Over all, a worthy read if you are looking for perspective from experienced animators.

I really wish I had some of these insights after graduating college.
I would recommend to any aspiring animators.
