This book is the very best I have read (so far) on writing. Even if you never plan to write a screenplay, there is some extremely valuable information in here. I particularly liked how they related story elements to movies everyone knows. It goes into the details of writing a screenplay, but it also delves into characters development, plot, pacing and more. Really good.

Very easy to read and understand...especially for someone that has never planned to write a screenplay!

Explains the craft in simple terms, while still being thorough and thought-provoking. Highly recommended for beginners.
