"Inception gets the art movie treatment, with a really nice paperback edition of the screenplay. There are eight pages of color concept art, and a ton of storyboards plus a few of Nolan's own handwritten notes and diagrams. And there's an ultra-revealing introduction, in which Nolan gets interviewed by his brother Jonathan. For anybody interested in the creative process behind this film, this book is pretty much a must-have."

This just goes to show you the kind of work required to make such an idea a reality.
As a budding screenwriter and director, Nolan's works have always fascinated me and I have taken it upon myself to be a devoted scholar of his art vision.
Recommended for not only every screenwriter, but all lovers of reading.
The movie's intense, and keeps your mind racing while you're sitting on the edge of your seats. The screenplay reads extremely well, and has much of the same page-turning intensity - but gives you time to reflect on the precise plot and dialogue lines. There are a few scenes in here that were cut out of the movie - and I can see why, because they are always dialogue heavy scenes, explaining the mechanisms of extraction and inception or showing early stages of the planning that went into the heist into Fischer's mind. While they might have slowed down the story on screen, they do clarify things quite a bit, especially a couple of scenes in which Eames and Cobb and Arthur are discussing how and why they need to implant the idea of breaking up his father's company in 3 different stages.
There's an intriguing interview between Chris Nolan and his brother Jonathan about the initial inception of Inception, and there are several storyboarded scenes. There's also what looks like a professional instruction manual for the intravenous dream device (that they carry around in a shiny suitcase). Highly recommended for lovers of the movie - it's always illuminating to read the screenplay of a film you've seen and enjoyed, and this screenplay is extremely readable. I've read several, but I found this one to be not only intriguing but fun. (The last time I couldn't put down a screenplay once I'd started was when I read Tarantino's initial script for Inglourious Basterds.)

- Interview/Discussion w/ Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan
