For a newer book, this one does a great job of building on what many HTD books offer. It's great as a starting point, or as a complement to others. The Japanese may be hard to follow for anyone just learning, but the images alone do a good job of conveying what's natural movement and positioning for the body. The early parts aren't as heavily gendered, so it helps to use the material when modeling a character regardless of gender and just figuring out a build. The rest of the book is fairly gendered, but a lot of the poses are across a diversity of angles, composition and scenes. There's a lot of motion, personality and kind of elements. There's also posing for pairs across different moods. A lot of the later poses don't have much guides to them, but as references, they are nice to use and can help create ideas for scenes. Probably one of the more broad and well-rounded HTD books I've seen, and definitely recommended.
Books are basically written in Japanese except for bilingual books or ones indicated as not written only in Japanese.
