Save The Cat! ***

*** Save the Cat! The Last Book on Screenwriting You'll Ever Need, Blake Snyder, 2005

This has been on my shelf for a while, but having read two screenwriting books back-to-back, I decided to let this one age for a while. Then, while discussing my latest project with a guy in L.A., I received a stern admonission to not write another word until I read this book. Being a compliant sort, I complied.

This is a good book on screenwriting with a lot of good ideas. It didn't bring everything together in a grand Unified Field Theory for me the way Hague did, but it is as valuable a read.

Four stars for screenwriters.
