how is jack hamm's book for learning to draw heads?

hello friends, well! i want to be a 3d character modeler and i was suggested to learn to draw anatomy first even before i start learning modeling.. so i bought two books 1). andrew loomis's drawing head and hands, 2). jack hamm's drawing the head and figure.. now i am in a bit of a dilemma of which one to follow coz on one hand i found andrew loomis method more accurate and technically correct but a little bit hard to understand and one the other hand i am finding jack hamm's instructions are really easy to follow however if any body has read his book then u must have noticed that his first two methods seemed flawed coz he talks about the equilateral traingle rule (from the corner of the eyes crossing at the lower lips) which i just can't draw from his first two methods at all... i dont know may be its just me ..please guys help me out..and sorry if i do any english mistake i am not very good at it

Read and look at as many different points of views as you can find. On the really important points they should all pretty much converge.

some good starters:

Andrew Loomis
Jack Hamm
Burne Hogarth
George Bridgeman

Try and get in front of a live model (life drawing workshops)
Also draw everyone and everything around you - take sketch pads with you everywhere - people for the most part really don't notice or care that you are drawing - they are too wrapped up in their own lives.
