    Every artist (and entrepreneur) should read this book! Although 'Jaws in Space' is predominantly aimed at screenwriters with the daunting task of presenting their scripts to film and TV producers, or directors, these principles are useful to anyone with an idea to sell. Pitching is particularly difficult for us novelists who spend long months (sometimes years) polishing our manuscripts. To describe our work in two succinct sentences seems impossible at times.

Although 'Jaws in Space' is predominantly aimed at screenwriters with the daunting task of presenting their scripts to film and TV producers, or directors, these principles are useful to anyone with an idea to sell. Pitching is particularly difficult for us novelists who spend long months (sometimes years) polishing our manuscripts. To describe our work in two succinct sentences seems impossible at times. Yet pitching is a skill we need to possess in order to gain readers. This book helps a writer to see the wood for the trees: what is the story really about? Harris also goes further than just pitching; he also explains the nature of a story, how the characters and plot interact to make an excellent story – and a pitch. This book has already become an invaluable tool in my writing process and I know I will be dipping in and out of for years to come.

    There's some insight here, but despite the fact that this book is only 4 years old, it often feels incredibly dated. There are several references to Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey that feel inappropriate. This doesn't tarnish the entirety of the book, but reflects the out of touch points peppered throughout.
