From the PublisherOut of general interest I bought this book and read it. I found it so inspirational that I'm determined to have a go at writing a screenplay myself. However, the real clincher was the brilliant offer of an acceptance to the Raindance Gallery of Rejection. Whatever happens, I'm now guaranteed a positive response for all the hard work I've set myself; I thank Raindance very much for their encouragement.
I have just read this excellent book..which is nothing short of genius, especially in the
techniques for selling which take up over half the book. Not that the interesting ideas on structure, characterization and dialogue arent brilliant - they are - and very useful.
Its just that no other book on screenwriting, or on writing in general has the same flare, insight and inspiration as this one.
I hope this book is kept in print for years and years!

It would also be an appropriate tool for those more experienced in the filmmaking business." - POV2 Journal
