I'm giving all five stars for how-to usefulness because it's not necessarily the most engaging book I've read on the craft of screenwriting. But the advice is solid, practical, and -- best of all -- step by step. Read it through once to get the concepts, then again performing each TO DO task in your script. I also like Save the Cat! as a guide for rewrites, especially for studying blockbusters as models.

So glad this book was assigned for my Master's programs reading. I came across it in Powell's books and saved it to my Good Reads "to-read" list. This books is filled with necessary exercises, definitely glad this is in my collection. Now onto applying Chitlik's exercises to my screenplay.

Had to write a review just before I've finished...
This is the real deal. As any screenwriter knows: it's not writing, it's re-writing. Always.
Chitlik has done a masterful, and truly helpful, job of it. Writers will get it...and should get it.

A brief overview on rewriting, mostly focusing on going back for key things like 7 part structure, character development, dialogue, etc.
