Figure Drawing

Over the past few days I have made several attempts at figure drawing. I have attempted to read the book that I borrowed from the UNC Library,The Artist’s Complete Guide to Figure Drawing. I find the book to be a little hard to follow and not as useful as I would like in a book about such a difficult topic. I am still seeking the perfect book for the topic, but I am not impressed with what I am finding at Amazon, and the local stores have close to no selection when it comes to art. Anyone know of a good book for the topic?
