The reason this book only gets 3 stars is because it's horrible construction. It's printed on very cheap paper which is majorly warped (I've never seen this in a paperback book like this).
So, to summarize: Content good, physical book bad.
The book itself was in very good condition; it has fairly thick, plastic-ish pages like you would expect from an art book, so you don't have to worry about getting clay or anything on it. It's pretty large, but I think that's to be expected. It's lasted about three years very well, the spine has broken a little so it stays open on pages I look at a lot (which is actually nice because it can be hard to keep open while you're using your hands to sculpt) and I expect it'll continue to last for as long as I need it. This book is definitely worth the price if you are looking to start sculpting and feel intimidated by other, bigger, more expert-looking books.
The guide is beautiful to behold with large and detailed illustrations as well as clear instructions to help you follow along. It is also set up in such a way that referencing it at any stage of your sculpture for help is very and easy allows you to troubleshoot your creation without wasting time. The "field guide" theme and little visual touches such as the field notes make it entertaining and a little more engaging while you are reading. The size and quality of this guide make it quite a bargain at the current price and it would still be worth it near list price.
If you or someone you know is getting into sculpting or have been sculpting for a while and just need some techniques to up your game, this guide will prove invaluable to you.
