The Wrong Stuff: The Adventures and Misadventures of an 8th Air Force Aviator
Price: $9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything I needed to know and more, June 16, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The real McCoy. I'm writing a script about the tribulations of an American pilot in Europe during WWII, so this book written by a real pilot came in handy. It made me review the errors in my script and gave me the insight I needed so much. Thank you, Smithy!

In The Foundations of Screenwriting you'll find the basis and much more that any beginner writer needs to start his career.
People already in the movie business will enjoy Syd Field's book as well. Lots of information. Deserves a thorough reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Misspent Money, April 11, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The book is highly interesting, but also a sad narrative about governments (both republican and democratic) throwing away money. Big money. Money needed in the USA to promote economic recovery. A clear demonstration how stupid Washington is in its foreign and domestic policy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now and then old friends make mighty enemies, February 27, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As usual, Carolyn J. Rose, my former mentor, master of the words, hit the mark. Her phrases are a lesson in first-class writing. She wrote an intriguing story about people who do not tolerate newcomers in their community and will not make their being any easier. On the contrary, whenever possible they will turn your life into real hell, burning your house, especially with you inside.


The Detachment (John Rain Thrillers)
The Detachment (John Rain Thrillers)
by Barry Eisler
Edition: Paperback
Price: $11.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Non-stop action as of page 1, February 27, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I read The Detachment in just a few breaths. Barry Eisler's book is full with action from the very beginning. His hero, John Rain, in the company of a bunch of professional killers like him, gets the mission to stop an inconceivable yet real coup d'état in the USA. Will they be able to complete the deadly job with its many pitfalls and betrayals along the way or, more likely, will they kill each other? Find out like I did. After all, there are one hundred million dollars in rough diamonds at stake.

5.0 out of 5 stars Manuscript Makeover: Review Techniques No Fiction Writer Can Afford to Ignore, June 13, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
'Manuscript Makeover' is by far the best book I read on the subject.
Simple to use, easy to understand, full with examples.
I recommend it to anyone who is about to contact an agent or publisher.
Do not look any further.
