The major text book of the animation trade has just been updated. In the DVD version of "The Animator's Survival Kit", Dick had already added more material than what had been in the first edition of the book. Now the good news is that after finishing the DVDs, Dick went back to work on a new "Expanded Edition" of the book, updating it with the additional material.The added material is nicely organized at the end of the book:

You don't want to miss the lectures on the DVDs, where Dick talks you through everything, but the book is indispensable for animators in their day to day work. I'm glad I have it in my book shelf.
