Format: Paperback
If you have read several scriptwriting books, you could be forgiven for thinking 'What else could there be to say about scriptwriting?' - particularly by an English writer - as opposed to a Hollywood style writer.
You'll be pleasantly surprised by this book. It offers insights that I have never read before in my 30 or so scriptwriting books packed on my shelves. It states obvious facts that make you feel like kicking yourself for not seeing them before - a 'How come I never thought of that before' scenario. These insights are very valuable as they touch upon your own personal perspective as a writer. In other words it's not just a how-to-do book, it is also a how to access the scriptwriter within - not by exercises but just by straight-talking that really makes sense.
It does give clear examples of scene layout and examples of how-to- do aspects as well as how-not-to-do, so it does cover everything in an understandable way that is also very useful.
To summarise - It is a deep, insightful and very clear book. It is very different from other books on the market and so is definitely worth a read. It is suitable for a beginner, but probably better for someone who has read at least one scriptwriting book before or if you are looking for your first books and want to buy more than one book.
Although written from an English perspective, it non-the less very applicable to any scriptwriter - even in Hollywood - and I highly recommend it.

I first read this book at a library about seven years ago and I quickly ordered my copy. I have used it in teaching movie making clubs and when creating my scripts. This is absolutely a must to read for anyone intersted in writing. It's amazing how this book addresses beginners' common mistakes, that I myself was committing before.
