Just great

It is great that Robert Mckee narrates this sensational how-to-REALLY-write-working-screenplays audiobook. I am not just sure it is comprehensive, since I doubt that 6 hours wouldn't fully deal with the 450 pages that are in the book. I have the book as well but have listened to this audiobook already twice since I haven't had thoroughly read the book. Excellent while cycling/commuting to home/work.

As a keen wannabe film-artist, I'd say the STORY itself is the greatest book about the issue I've ever met. Pure facts, great in-depth examples and no-nonsense. This guy so knows what he is talking about. Book 5 stars, audiobook 4.
