Book Review by Rio
The Good: I like how it covers minute details like creating see-through clothing, differences in wrinkle lines and fabric, and the important method of accentuating certain body parts using accessories, and memorable poses.
The Bad: A few images of women in the S&M get-up but nothing too serious like in the Super Tone Technique book.
Overall: A continuation of the Pretty Girl volume, this actually has new information not covered in other How To books (unlike it's predecessor). I find this book to be more useful for male drawers who are not as privileged to know the female life such as the importance of accessorizing, how to apply makeup, what type of garments a female would have, and even how to put on clothes.
