Publisher Comments:

In the long-awaited sequel to his surprise bestseller, Save the Cat!, author and screenwriter Blake Snyder returns to form in a fast-paced follow-up that proves why his is the most talked-about approach to screenwriting in years.

In the perfect companion piece to his first book, Snyder delivers even more insider's information gleaned from a 20-year track record as "one of Hollywood's most successful spec screenwriters," giving you the clues to write your movie. Designed for screenwriters, novelists, and movie fans, this book gives readers the key breakdowns of the 50 most instructional movies from the past 30 years. From M*A*S*H to Crash, from Alien to Saw, from 10 to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Snyder reveals how screenwriters who came before you tackled the same challenges you are facing with the film you want to write — or the one you are currently working on.

Review:

"If his light, fun style occasionally veers too far into jokey, palsy hipsterdom, Snyder can be forgiven because the tone does the heavy lifting of deconstructing complex story arcs." Library Journal

After the original Save the Cat! book, this is the book you'll reach for most often when writing your screenplay. No joke, you will come back to it again and again, every time you write a script. It's an indispensable reference for all ability levels. Totally worth the money. And don't loan it out; you'll never get it back. (Trust me on that one.)
