    I found this to be a good guide to the revision/rewriting process, and pretty much everything covered can be applied to prose as well as screenplays. I found a lot of the information repetitive at times, and I thought the process, and therefore the book, could have been streamlined. He also recommends watching certain movies in the beginning and makes it sound as though he's really going to break them down for study in the book, but you can get away without watching the movies if you don't want, I found this to be a good guide to the revision/rewriting process, and pretty much everything covered can be applied to prose as well as screenplays.

    This book seems to be flying under the radar since it's not from one of the major film book publishers, but it is absolutely worth a read. It's one of the few books available about rewriting, and it's one of the most practical-minded books about screenwriting. Period. If you take the time to work through the chapters and honestly answer the questions your script will improve. I can honestly say this book made me a better writer.

    Really good, targeted and practical advice on how to write a screenplay - written by someone who knows what they are talking about ( he wrote top gun) not some overhyped writer whose major contribution to film was "stop or my mom will shoot" Really good, targeted and practical advice on how to write a screenplay - written by someone who knows what they are talking about ( he wrote top gun) not some overhyped writer whose major contribution to film was "stop or my mom will shoot"
