Don'ts' of pitching.
The book is reasonably priced, an easy read and slim enough to be digestible for those short on time.
Hauge's enthusiasm for his subject matter shines throughout the book, Although if I am to be critical it would be towards the rather mediocre films he uses as examples of good practice (mainly Hollywood buddy movies or tried and tested rom-com formulas), but this small niggle aside, 'Selling your story in 60 seconds' is a handy, compact go to book - on the art of the quick pitch. I recommend it to all you screen-play writers out there.
I'm tired of finding books that promise to talk about something and eventually talk about something else.
It is short, concise, inspirational and very effective (just like a pitch). Oh, and very funny too.
It really helped me to focus my pitch and not ramble about my script. As soon as I was reaching the end of the book, I wrote a sample pitch for my current script, following the teachings of the book. I ended up having a pitch much more engaging than any other I had written before.
There's one more thing which I found to be a great plus, but that not many other books do (although they should). He spends most of the book teaching his techniques, but at the end he includes interviews with executive producers, development managers and other people with pitching experience. This is an invaluable addition.
