Snyder is very informative on the many elements of screenwriting. He explains concepts well without being too elaborate. He adds personal humor through his tone which makes the learning process all the more enjoyable. His personal “tricks” acquired from experience are also very insightful and I imagine will apply to any beginner.

While surfing filmmaking, I heard raves for STC and they were spot on. What a great, practical and concise summary of screenwriting. Not that it’s my “thing”, but the lessons extend well beyond into sales in general and THAT is my thing. Everyone should read this book and appreciate the genius of simplicity.

If you write any kind of fiction, this book gets down to the nitty-gritty of making your work salable. Some will say it rehashes all that is wrong with the film industry, but seriously, it shows what makes movies memorable and how to craft your story to fit the audience’s needs while maintaining your own integrity as a writer.

A great reference book for beginning screenwriters,

I had bought another book for screenplays and thought it was pretty good. After receiving ‘Save the Cat’ I realized how much better ‘SAT’ was than the other book. Easy to read and understand for a rookie screenwriter. Author – Jude’s Gentle Giants

Very good book to get your feet wet in screenwriting. If you are am aspiring screenwriter and have never read a book on screenwriting – read this one by the late Blake Snyder.

Amazingly Insightful

I was completely blown away by how insightful “Save the Cat” was. Snyder’s overall theory of screenwriting is founding completely in logic but no one has ever articulated it so clearly. The book is filled with moments where I was slapping my own forehead saying “of course, why didn’t I think of that.” He doesn’t dance around the fact that he is a spec script writer and that his main goal is to write scripts that get purchased and appeal to large demographics and in his honesty about that he doesn’t dance around telling you what you need to do to write a successful screenplay.
