"The book is a fun, useful read. At just 122 pages, you can digest the whole thing in a weekend and be ready on Monday to bring some new life to your latest script. One of the benefits of examining script techniques through a specific set of films is that the lessons all become immediately applicable. Dean has an example for virtually every point he makes, so if you've seen even half of Pixar's movies, you'll be able to get the most possible out of this book."
