One of the better ones Jul 17, 2008
While there were a few areas I skimmed over(too basic), this is still a very solid screenwriting book and I highly recommend it for any writer's reference library.
Great Book. Explain's alot about screenwriting with perfect simplicity Aug 23, 2007
Very easy to understand. Explains a ton about screenwriting without getting fancy or trying to fool you. Might want to brush up on the Godfather trilogy before you read the book; he uses that particular movie for alot of examples. It is a joy to read. Ackerman has a great sense of humor.
cool beans Apr 4, 2007
This is a well-written and well-thought out book. It gets to the nuts and bolts of screenwriting without 500 pages of nonsensical theory.
-- Lee Rudnicki, Esq.
Very Complete. Touches on All Aspects Feb 10, 2007
I loved this book. It provided everything I needed to know about WRITING a screenplay. It does not focus on form, selling, query letters, producers, etc. It focuses solely on WRITING a screenplay, structuring a screenplay may be more accurate. Without a proper structure, you have nothing. No query letter in the world will be able to sell a poor idea. This book walks you through structuring that good idea.
The index method is one of the best. It allowed me to focus my thoughts. I highly recommend this book to anyone considering writing a screenplay!
