    This book was exactly what I needed; it provided a structural framework onto which I could begin to sculpt my idea. I learned a lot about the tools, the necessary steps in story telling and how to walk through them. I really enjoyed it and feel like my eyes have been opened up.
  • Best book for screenwriters
