Editorial Reviews

. - Alyson Noël
Blake Snyder has given us another gem. I never begin a story without his insanely useful ‘Beat Sheet’ by my side, but this time, Snyder goes one step further, sharing his own personal transformation from struggling writer to one who’s seen great success. From the most generous and genuine writer/teacher of our time, this book will inspire the reader to scale all of those seemingly insurmountable brick walls and keep going.
Mark Hentemann
A dazzling expansion on Blake’s original screenwriting insights, this essential screenwriting tool is practical and profound.
