There’s no jargon, formulas or academic theory. You get a brief description of the principle, learn how it works, an example from the greatest stories ever written, a guide to executing the principle, an idea for further study and a mini final exam. When you drill the fundamentals, they become part of your DNA. This will make your writing more compelling, necessary, original and inspired.

"This is the straight dope—all the tools you need to craft a hell of a great story." —Paul Giamatti, actor

"Rubin, a playwright and TV scriptwriter, aims with this manual to give writers “enough direction to avoid getting lost, but not so much that it strangles your creativity,” and succeeds in creating an invaluable resource... This is a no-brainer for both pro and would-be novelists."
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Seasoned multimedia writer Rubin (NBC, the WB) injects the traditional writing manual with an overdue fix of dash and utility... This new bible of lessons and practices for creators across media will likely appeal to readers curious about behind-the-scenes realities of those who bring to life today’s most popular and intelligent entertainment."
Library Journal

"Perfect for any writer looking to ensure their stories operate and resonate at the top of their potential."
