While many figure drawing books gear towards more realistic anatomical representations, this book adopts a looser approach. Most of the exercises use "blind" contour drawings. It's not about constructing figures from imagination. The book's actually about life figure drawing so you need access to a posing model, or reference photos.
There is more emphasis on how you draw rather than what you draw. The artist Bill Buchman uses a lot of different drawing materials so you can see how different each figure feels from the other.
An interesting book for artists who wants a looser approach to figure drawing.
Another book you should check out Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators which is on another form or style of expressive figure drawing.
