Story by Robert McKee

If I had to put money down, I'd bet that this book is old news for lot of you. Especially guys like Phil and Kazu who have studies or been around film a lot.

But I'm reading Story now and it's like going to an engaging lecture on storytelling (specifically screenwriting but it applies far beyond that). McKee's writing is clear and concise, well organized, and he used good examples.

As a handbook for creators and storytellers this goes on my "recommended" list.

Though my opinion doesn't have much weight, since I don't actually have anything published yet (though I did help with the story on this hopefully soon to be published book, McKee did wonders for me. He's a little long winded and technical, but I had no problem understanding him. I'd say the best thing he's got going is that he really punches home the central role of stories. Gets me goin' every time.
In Soviet Russia, television watches you.
