"The most important screenwriting book on Audible!"
I had no idea who this guy was until I bought this book. Now, I'm convinced he's one of the most knowledgeable people in the screenwriting biz. Much of the stuff he touches on, I learned at a certain west coast school's MFA program, but I ended up paying a helluva lot more for that education than I did for this book!! Also, it's nice to have everything all neat and clean in a tidy package like this.
Anyone writing a screenplay, no matter what level you're at, would be well-served in listening to this audiobook.
And that is all. Time to write.
"Probably better in print"
This is a pretty good book about screenwriting, and it's better-written than most. I also appreciate that the author has a sense of humor and isn't too full of himself.
However, since it's basically a "how to" book, it's more useful in print form. I gave up on the Audible version after 5 chapters.
