"As an educator and professional makeup artist for over 30 years, I say without reservation, Todd's books are a godsend. The information is cohesive, complete, and presented in a way that is easily absorbed. The information and techniques are there for the newbie and the seasoned professional. Thank you, Mr. Debreceni; your hard work has made us all better at what we do."
-Thomas E. Surprenant, Emmy Award-winning Makeup Artist
"When I was learning makeup, a book like this would have been gold in my hands. Everything you could possibly want to know has been put in this incredible, kit essential, book of special makeup effects. It doesn't get much better than this."
-Sara Seidman Vance, Emmy-nominated Makeup Artist; Creator and Instructor of Lighting for Make-Up Artists 101 (c)
"Books about makeup artistry for motion pictures and television written by industry insiders are rare. Todd's are a treasure. They belong in every serious artist's library."
-Michael Key, Emmy Award-winning Makeup Artist; Publisher of Makeup Artist Magazine, Executive Producer of IMATS
"There are a lot of bad ways to learn how to do special makeup FX with the technology we have these days. Put down the phone and pick up an actual book; Todd's is the best. It has clear text, and has step-by-step lessons by the top names in the makeup industry. Hands down, there is no better way to learn FX. Each edition is a treasure trove."
-Michael Mosher, IATSE Local 706 Journeyman; Author of Bald Caps for HD
"For me, Special Makeup Effects is a book that has helped me find out about new products and techniques from the masters. I also used it to brush up on my life casts. I'm an artist who didn't go to school to learn the industry; I used books to learn the trade. In today's world, it is so important to learn from people who know what they are talking about, especially with so many sources of misinformation."
-Nix Herrera, Award-winning International Body Painter; Contestant on Season Two of SyFy Channel's Hit Show Face Off
