Yet another screenwriting manual aimed at an audience of complete morons and filled with observations that should be obvious to anyone who's ever payed attention to a movie before. This one has the added benefit of including a draft character outline for a screenplay in progress by the author, so that you can confirm for yourself that yes, he really is a talentless hack. (Have you ever noticed that the guys who write these things almost never have any notable screenplays to their credit?)
