Twilight Zone and Playhouse 90 veteran William Froug gives indispensable advice in that the Zen encourages you to be true to your voice, write what you want, and dispense with all those books that straitjacket you into a formula. Think of the money you'll save! (Unless, of course, you have an urgent need to write a Speed or Die Hard sequel.) Froug also reinforces my Northern California bias (my home turf): two of the interviews that pepper this book are with screenwriters who live there–Bo Goldman and David and Janet Peoples.
Up there with Syd Field’s Screenplay and Robert McKee’s Story as one of the best books on Screenwriting. Will improve you screenwriting skills, as well as the way you write.

I read this book because I just finished William Froug’s other book, “Screenwriting Tricks of the Trade”, and I was loved and resides on the top of my list of the best/helpful books I’ve ever read about screenwriting. Both are geared more towards the advanced screenwriter and those who’ve had essays of structure and characterization up to the gills and are now ready to write something good.

Through the years many how to books have been written, not only on screenwriting but just about every subject imaginable. William Froug’s book is more than a “How To” book. Zen and the Art of Screenwriting is a journey into the writers soul, and Froug is the guide that leads you there.
