I love this book, this is the third copy I have of this book as I loan copies out and give them out as presents to people. This book turned me from a bloke who had lots of ideas to a bloke who could class himself as a screenwriter.
Beat sheet adds the structure to your screenplays. I now have 3 boards 90 cm x 55 cm hung on doors to use for screenwriting.
