There's a cool new book on animation workflows called "Animation Insiders - Workflow Edition" that I think is worth picking up. It contains interviews with 13 working animators who discuss not only their processes for creating animated performances in various media, but also the inspired stories of how they came into this career. Lot's of good advice for young and veteran animators alike. It's not on Amazon.com yet, but you can order directly from the publisher.
Full disclosure: I am interviewed in this book as well (but I don't get royalties or anything).
