This review is from: Automatic Pilot (Paperback)
Not only is this book an invaluable learning tool for pilot writing novices, it is also perfect for experienced writers for revision and reference while preparing the groundwork for new projects. Taub is meticulous in addressing every decision that must be made in order to write an engaging pilot script.
Taub breaks free from the dry lecturing that bogs down many works of this ilk. Instead, the extended metaphor of writers being the pilots to their pilots makes this a fun as well as informative read. Nor does Taub dictate sets of rules to be adhered to. This is very much a guide to make the most of one’s creative juices, empowering the writer to “write what you want to see.”
The reader also feels the presence of a mentor whispering encouragement as he/she takes on the challenge of creating a TV world from scratch. This reader wanted to finish the book as soon as possible, so impatient was he to get to work on another story.
However, the purpose of the book is not to teach screenwriting theory. Therefore, this reader recommends the book to those who wish to put their already learned knowledge of screenwriting to the specific task of writing a TV pilot.

5.0 out of 5 stars I recommend it highly, Bill Taub is a wonderfully positive and encouraging motivator. The check list is vey helpful too!, 27 May 2014
This review is from: Automatic Pilot (Kindle Edition)
Bill Taub's book "Automatic Pilot" was recommended by a friend who said even if you're not a writer, it's terrific - I totally agree!

As an actress I am always looking to learn new skills and increase my employability. Taub’s book gave me invaluable insight into the process; which in turn helped me break down scripts and characters with renewed vision. I have dabbled in writing in the past and now feel much better equipped, Taub puts it all into perspective.

I recommend it highly; Taub is a wonderfully positive and encouraging motivator in what can be a terribly negative and unpredictable business - as he says, 'these are not businesses of geniuses'!

With these new skills and the amazing step-by-step checklist I now intend to write another script and create the perfect role for myself.
Thank you Bill Taub!
