"Screenwriting Unchained is an incredibly comprehensive book and an impressive achievement indeed. In particular, the way Oberg devises a properly 'unified theory' that is creatively rather than orthodoxy led makes it a fabulous one-stop, practical tool box for writers and developers. I for one will be recommending it heartily (and using it in my writing no doubt!)"
--E. J. Clarke, Head of Film and TV at Shoebox Films and author of the Rowan Oakwing Series
"Whenever I worked with Emmanuel, I was always blown away by his razorsharp insight on how to construct and structure screenplays. Now he's collated all his insights into a book that should be required reading for any writer/director, writer or anyone dealing with the script development process. Screenwriting Unchained is the lightsabre of screenwriting books: the Story-Type Method cuts through to the essence and guides you when you are lost."
--Matthias Hoene, Writer/director (Cockneys vs Zombies, Warrior's Gate)
"Screenwriters tend to rely too heavily on formula, as if there is a plug-and-play recipe for creating art. What Oberg does with this Screenwriting Unchained book is offer a background on what he calls "logistical structure" and why it has worked for so long, but then focuses the writer on "dramatic structure" which instead allows the writer to breathe, present emotion on the page in a more fluid manner, and concentrate on the most important element of storytelling; presenting an emotional experience to an audience. A refreshing new book all writers should consider studying."
--Max Timm, Int'l Screenwriters Assoc (ISA) and author of YA fantasy novel, The WishKeeper
"This is a really clear and intelligently laid out book. Each section flows logically and easily into the next. It is very accessible and the principles are quick to grasp. It has some truly inspired chapters, use of Maslow, break down of types of story and above/below line requirements. There are proper workable tools to use when approaching rewriting too which is so often overlooked in other books. Just when I thought there couldn't possibly be anything more to add on the subject of screenwriting, this book finds it."
