Definitely the best book I've read on Screenwriting and story thus far. Unlike many of the others, the techniques and discussion presented in this book do not focus on formula, page count, hitting certain beats or using tricks and gimmicks to tell a story. Instead it presents strategies for building, organizing and telling a solid story from the ground up using methods general enough to be applied in any screenplay but specific enough to make them practical. Furthermore, because it focuses on story rather than structure, this book would be beneficial to anyone desiring to tell a story in nearly any medium. I highly recommend it.
