Although I'm only 1/2 way through the book, it is easy to give it 5 stars. It's a great mix of informative and engaging, right up there with Rabiger's "Directing" books. If it's a slow read, that's only because you'll be jumping back and forth between reading it and writing down the ideas it inspires.

I gave a 5 rating even though I have yet to read the book because of all the material that I have looked into for my own writing purposes do not even compare to the credits that Robert Mckee obviously gets from collegues to anyone that has ever heard of him or has seen one of his movies.

"Review" by , "[McKee] is a tireless speaker, knowledgeable and passionate....No matter what continent you live on, if you look outside and see a group of writers or movie nuts gathering, probably Robert McKee is in town." William Goldman, Academy Award-winning screenwriter of All the President's Men and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
"Review" by , "Knowledge of story design is just as vital for the novelist as it is for the screenwriter. No one imparts this wisdom like Robert McKee. He is not only the best teacher of writing I've ever had, but the best teacher of anything."
"Review" by , "Robert McKee's course helped me enormously. Every writer, actor, producer, and director should take it."
"Review" by , "An internationally acclaimed teacher of the story-writing art, McKee maintains a whirlwind schedule...giving his near-legendary Story seminars worldwide."
"Synopsis" by , Robert McKee's screenwriting workshops have earned him an international reputation for inspiring novices, refining works in progress and putting major screenwriting careers back on track. Quincy Jones, Diane Keaton, Gloria Steinem, Julia Roberts, John Cleese and David Bowie are just a few of his celebrity alumni. Writers, producers, development executives and agents all flock to his lecture series, praising it as a mesmerizing and intense learning experience.

In Story, McKee expands on the concepts he teaches in his $450 seminars (considered a must by industry insiders), providing readers with the most comprehensive, integrated explanation of the craft of writing for the screen. No one better understands how all the elements of a screenplay fit together, and no one is better qualified to explain the "magic" of story construction and the relationship between structure and character than Robert McKee.
