Question About Slant

My book came today, and I have a few questions.  In the book, their slant for the F's and V's are so insanely slanted, i find it hard to actually achieve such a slant.  For example, when the word "vase" is writin, The top of the V and the bottom of the V have a good ammount of horrizontal space, and there is still a hook.  Do people really draw the hook at the top of the letter?  Is it really that slanted?  Does'nt seem so natural to me...  Thanks.
