It lays out in a reasonable and light-hearted way a series of points for the would-be writer of sitcoms. Some of the advice could relate to any kind of writing and the best piece is where the authors stress that the writer should keep on working on ideas all the time, not just sit and wait for one show proposal to get a result (or not).
The book is upbeat and clear, but it doesn't pull any punches on reiterating how difficult the business can be yet encourages the writer to keep on going and not be defeated by rejection. It also has relevant points about submitting work, copyright and earnings.
It is a book that, once read, should be regularly dipped into on the way to writing sitcom. A useful little mine of information.
