Mr Blake Snyder shares easy to understand, step-by-step breakdown of how a script should hit certain "beats" at specific page ranges, and gives easy to understand examples that anyone can grasp.
Wish he could've shared more wisdom beyond this excellent series before he passed away, far too soon.
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.
