Those who CAN do Teach
Okay, there are a million books on how to write a script out there. Why should you invest in one more? A couple of reasons that Successful Television Writing by Lee Goldberg and William Rabkin is worth your $15.95: 1) Unlike most writing books, this one is written by working pros. They have done their time at every level of the TV biz, from staff writer to showrunner. They know how it really works. They draw on nearly two decades of experience to teach you how to write a spec that will get you in the door -- and what to expect once that door actually swings open. 2) Unlike most writing books, this one isn't going to waste your time teaching you about Aristotle (again) or formatting (again) or the definitions of character and drama (again). They assume you know the basics. This book is for people who have mastered the basic skills and are ready to try their hands at writing for a living. Or who want to see what the TV life is like before jumping in themselves 3) Unlike most writing books, this isn't a dry how-to. In the words of best-selling author Janet Evanovich, 'Not since William Goldman's Adventures in the Screen Trade has there been a book this revealing, funny, and informative about The Industry. Reading this book is like having a good, long lunch with your two best friends in the TV business.' Or, as Terence Winter, co-exec producer of The Sopranos, says: 'Where was this book when I was starting out? A fantastic, fun, informative guide to breaking into -- and more importantly, staying in -- the TV writing game from the guys who taught me how to play it.'Was this review helpful?
