User Review  - KR_Patterson - LibraryThing

This book is actually for writing screenplays but applies so well for creating any story, and for life itself, really. I believe there is a well of truth in its pages. Like a treasure. I can't say enough. Honestly, I feel like I was looking through a pile of rocks and I found a diamond. Read full review
