Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This is the straight dope—all the tools you need to craft a hell of a great story.” Paul Giamatti, actor
“Rubin, a playwright and TV scriptwriter, aims with this manual to give writers ‘enough direction to avoid getting lost, but not so much that it strangles your creativity’ and succeeds in creating an invaluable resource… This is a no-brainer for both pro and would-be novelists.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“So often people ask me if there’s a book on story I can recommend. This is the one. I can’t recommend it highly enough.” Alexa Junge, writer/producer, Friends, Sex and the City, The West Wing
“A godsend for storytellers in all media. It will help you decide what to write and then show you, step by step, how to tackle virtually any problem you face.” Anna D. Shapiro, Tony Award-winning director, August: Osage County
“Not a ‘how-to,’ thank God, but a ‘here’s why.’ Writers of all levels of experience will benefit from reading–and then rereading–his elegant exploration of the principles of storytelling.” Traci Letts, Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright
“[The] new bible of lessons and practices for creators.” Library Journal
