I'm sure the CD ROM with pictures of these poses in 360 will make this far more valuable than the layout of the print material itself. Mr. Author: this book is not a work of art on it's own. Clever layouts and stacking figures overlapping each other does not make this book effective - it makes it less effective - tedious, inefficient - or in many cases useless. Just show these wonderful poses so that we can SEE THEM. Don't cut off legs to get a cool layout... do WHATEVER it takes to allow us to see the full pose - or you're serving no purpose at all.
This book is dedicated entirely to various action poses. The shots are very dynamic, and as usual, the quality of the photography is excellent. The authors came up with some very creative methods of showing various poses (shots in which the models are suspended from above, for instance) and the models offer a very impressive array of body types, ethnicity, etc.
Poses range in type from running, falling, being crushed, pushing, pulling, lifting, throwing, and others.
The only issue I have is that the photographs in the book are, at times, limited by space and editing requirements. As usual, the real gold here is found in the DVD included with the book; this gives you full 360-degree turnarounds of each pose in the book, extra poses, and shots taken from unusual angles (above, below, ground level, etc.).
A lot of Classical Realists will find many of the poses to be TOO dynamic, but the book makes up for it by presenting plenty of reference that is still useful. Illustrators and comic-book artists should be very pleased with it.
I highly recommend all of the books in this series, and the publisher's website serves as an excellent resource, as well.
This is the 7th book published, so they are obviously doing something right!
Also, the book & DVD are self-explanatory. It is not necessary to own the previous 6.
As far as everything else keep up the great work.
Most of the more dynamic poses I was looking for are here!
I also have access to the database of the complete website of artists poses, so with a single purchase I now have a complete listing of figure studies.

That's okay for just having something on your device for scribbling from, but if you want to be able to have a larger selection, it's probably better to get the full version. You can always save the images you want to work with to your tablet or whatever and work on them from that later.
I have some of the other books/CDs in the series - I think they are great and just get better and better.
Whilst it does not replace life drawing sessions I find it is a really great resource for practice and for general consideration of poses - I have not come across anything else as good - a great addition to my working library.
