Alan Ford is an Italian comic book created by Max Bunker (Luciano Secchi) and Magnus (Roberto Raviola), in print since 1969. The comic book is a satirical take on classic secret agents laden with surreal and black humour, and sardonic references to aspects of the contemporary Italian and Western society. Although it became widely popular in Italy shortly after its introduction, Alan Ford remained relatively unknown outside Italy.

Hard for me to rate this book, while the presentation is very good with real world application and opinions on the CG industry, the material jumps around too often with no apparent cohesive to follow for one example to another. It does present very good information on rigging characters, but as I mentioned it really needed organization of the material in a clear and structure manner instead of being all over the place. I MUST mention that this book will go very nicely if you are a MAYA user, but will be problematic for non-MAYA users as all the examples require Maya to follow along, and are of course very MAYA specific.

the book offers a great initiation for the beginers users. The text explains the concepts of ik, fk, pole vectors etc are great and have detailed and useful information. But the great problem of this book is when you start the advanced lessons.The web site where you can find the bonus material is under construction. I've buyed the book by second hand and it's an old edition.I'm sure than years ago was avalible,but actually the book is incomplete.

First of all, the book is very Maya-specific, though a lot of the early chapters cover fundamental concepts (quite well actually) that apply to most any 3d package. Second, the book has a ton of great information (though half of it is semi-interesting interviews with industry professionals). In general it covers a lot of great techniques clearly and concisely and is easy to follow and presented well.

That having been said, there are some glaring, annoying negatives that warrant attention. There are a few type-os and oversights (key steps missing from tutorials and flat-out incorrect statements). To find your way around these errors requires an already present understanding of the concepts which a beginner simply wouldn't possess.

My biggest complaint is the downloadable content. Some of the files require pre-setup in order to match up what the book says is supposed to already be there. The finished result from most chapters isn't present, so you can't check your work against what you're supposed to end up with. Finally, the "ch16_finalResult" exhibits rigging methods and techniques that AREN'T COVERED IN THE BOOK. Upon exploration of the rig there are clearly things going on that aren't even mentioned, let alone explained in any detail. I find this to be incredibly frustrating. In addition to all this, I'm not even sure the content is available anymore so for that reason alone, bypass this product and check out the cgtoolkit product line.

Being an animator for several years I can tell that the single most important aspect that must be in place before you spend weeks bringing your characters to life is a solid character rig. This book not only provides clear cut information on how to build a robust setup but also takes you to the next level in showing you techniques in which you can add funtionality and control with expressions and scripts. Once again the Inspired series lets you learn from ACTUAL SENIOR CHARACTER ARTISTS WHO ARE PROVIDING YOU WITH INFORMATION USED BY TOP STUDIOS IN THEIR OWN PIPELINES. This book is worth the price just for the speed and interactivity these setups will provide. Your output and ability to make changes will double, garaunteed.

This book is the only book out there that makes a serious attempt at explaining 3D character rigging. You will find that the book a is joy to read as it contains lots of pertient information, including in-depth interviews from industry experts. However, there are a few errors. The book does not come with a CD, support files require downloading from the publishers website. As you work through the tutorials you will find that the files you download wont help you much. The first real tutorial (chapter 13) asks you to load a scene of a non-rigged character, however, the scene file is already fully rigged! I managed to un-rig the character and reorder the scene to how it should be, but this took me ages and I am an experienced Maya user.
For the beginner user looking for no hassle instruction I recommend you stay away from this book as it wont help you on your learning curve. Another problem is that although the book states it is software independent all the tutorials and explainations are done in Maya.
For the more experienced user, this book contains lots of good information. The book has the potential to be a great instructional book, it is a great shame that the authors missed the boat when organising the supporting material. Also, there appears to be no method of contacting the publishers via their website except by phone. I feel I have already paid over the odds for such poor quality and wont be spending more on international calls. U.S residents may wish to contact the publishers.

This book leads you from the most important knowledge needed to create a good character setup to the high-end setup demonstrated in the last several chapters. It's very crucial to follow the chapters from the beginning to get an clear understanding of the tools. Honestly, I read and exercised through them very fast and then followed the tutorials. It goes so deep and sophisticated that when I finished the setup, I couldn't fully understand what I was doing. I went back to the first several basic chapters and learned that actually I did a lot mistakes...such as translation and rotation tools and joint orient that you never think it's important. Those chapters are a great help too when you finish the setup and go back to read them again! You'll find new things every time you read the book. Tutorials are worthy of doing them again. They all refer to the concepts described earlier which are very basic but very easy to forget their importance!
