If you write romantic comedy, even novels, this is a great book on dialogue, sex scenes, pacing etc. His chapter on theme was the best I've read from any book on writing. He also analyzes a few movies, which was helpful, and I like his 7 point plot structure. I highly recommend it, and would suggest supplementing it with the Popcorn Dialogue podcasts by Jennifer Crusie and Lucy March (Lani Diane Rich.)
