Animation Book

I recently purchased a book on Amazon From Disney animator, Preston Blair.
Cartoon Animation (The Collector’s Series)
Very useful information.  Seems to be sort of a bible of animation.  It has walk and run cycles for 2 leg and 4 leg creatures.  Shows how to animate all kinds of movements.  Even has a dancing hippo cycle and and an alligator ballet for fun.  It discusses character creation and animation basics.   Shows how to develop characters with simple starting shapes like a circle.   Seems to be a very good book for the starting animator like me, I highly recommend it.   It is 224 pages long and the book was much bigger than I expected, so I am pleasantly surprised.
