Summary

In the perfect companion piece to his first book, Blake Snyder delivers even more insider information gleaned from a 20-year track record as one of Hollywood's most successful spec screenwriters. Designed for screenwriters, novelists, and movie fans, this book gives listeners key breakdowns of the 50 most instructional movies from the past 30 years. From M*A*S*H to Crash, Alien to Saw, and 10 to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Snyder reveals how screenwriters in the past tackled the same challenges faced by screenwriters today.

Excellent

Drills down on the first books concepts in a really useful way. I completely disagree with a criticism here of the narrator - he’s excellent and really easy to listen to.

Awful Narrator

The narrator sounds like the sarcastic pedant guy from the YouTube CinemaSins... It's extremely smug and irritating.
