...Right along with his famous, best selling Dynamic Figure Drawing, and the 1990 printing *original* version Dynamic Anatomy.
While this is in my opinion an attractive, *amazingly* detailed effort, I personally find The Book of a Hundred Hands by George Bridgman to be an easier & more effective work in its entirety. Both books deal with drawing from memory- drawing hands completely without a model.
Common praises(+) & criticisms(_) here:
+ ...amazingly detailed- in pictures & anatomy.
+ ...*crystal clear*, small-to-large sized, black & white drawings.
+ ...best-ever coverage of proportions & measurements.
+ ...the most comprehensive book on this subject to date.
+ ...helps a person discover many hidden aspects of hand construction.
+ ...covers all main actions, angles & views involving foreshortening.
+ ...males, females, kids, occupations & the aging process are depicted and described.
_ ...maybe *too much information*, too overwhelming & not all of it necessary.
_ ...hands often look too overly detailed, exaggerated & stylized. Maybe best for illustrators- not fine artists.
_ ...barely any coverage of female hands (just a few pictures).
_ ...*might* inadvertently make drawing hands more complicated than it needs to be.
Commercial & comicbook artists in particular often *love* this book. It's not necessary for everyone though- definitely worth considering!
