Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Don’t read it if you think motion pictures are a valid art form. It’ll depress you.
Would I feel different if the IMDB entry for the author listed something more than the two abysmal movies he wrote? Don’t think so. But it doesn’t help that he keeps referencing those movies as if they should be the highlight of anyone’s career.
Read it, use it, and your career will have a real shot at success in screenwriting.
As far as to how useful this book would be for a budding screenwriter, I don't really know because I've never written a script, but my intuition tells me that this is going to be very useful for future reference. The author's outline for structuring a script seems reasonable as do the tips for fine tuning it.
In other words, I think this would be a good start for someone who had ambitions of becoming a screenwriter.
I read "The Screenwriter's Bible" prior to reading "Save The Cat" and it had a somewhat different approach to the screenwriting process. I'd recommend reading both.
