I would suggest reading Screenwriting Down to the Atoms before Unified Theory, but I feel confident in saying that both are essential to someone who wants to truly understand the craft in the organized detail which would most avail them to a comprehensive grasp of this complex and extensive subject. The writer has performed a great service to students of screen craft. I do not feel it is hyperbole or overstatement to claim that Mr. Schock's volumes and most likely the upcoming Unified Theory, vol. II will subsequently be viewed as not only standard texts for the study of screenwriting, but acknowledged classics in the field. I am grateful for the opportunity to comment on them.
However, this book doesn’t provide series of cookie cutter formulas like other books about screenwriting, but rather it inspires you to write cohesive cinematic stories in the most organic way. The title might scare you that the book is too difficult and academic, but it is not only informative but also fun and exciting to read.
