A script is more or less a blueprint, a road map to give to others, (directors, actors, production, etc) A book is a standalone piece.

With a book you need to do more of the job than a screenwriter, but it's still a similar discipline. It's still how much do I tell, how much do I save until later, how much have I hooked the reader in. With scripts, you're writing for studio people and actors and financiers, but you're still telling them a story.(less)
