I bought this book because of the reviews that said it was excellent. I does lay out some of the principles well but I could not really understand the different film genres the author used. I looked up the author and watched "blank check", a film by Disney that the author wrote the screenplay for,. The screenplay was not great even though I have to accept he sold it and had the film made. I cannot see he has had an other films made since 1994 and he only had one other made in 1982 "Stop or my mum will shoot". I did a little more research by watching You Tube clips on writing. I found "The Anatomy of Story: 22 Steps to Becoming a Master Storyteller" which I am currently reading and find more easily digestible.
