About the Book:

Story is recommended by the Writers Guild Initiative!

Story will help you discover your strengths and weaknesses. Robert McKee is the "guru of gurus". He's a "master of the form and a servant of the craft". He's "legendary", according to the Washington Post, and "brilliant", according to Newsday, and "empowering", according to Movieline. He is, in fact, Hollywood's "most wanted screenwriting teacher", and has been for over 30 years. His popular screenwriting workshops have earned him an international reputation for inspiring novices, refining works in progress and putting major screenwriting careers back on track. Russell Brand, Jon Cleese, Peter Jackson, Geoffrey Rush, Meg Ryan, Julia Roberts, John Rivers, Kirk Douglas, John Cleese, William Goldman, Ed Saxon 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 the book Story, the world's most sought-after lecturer in the art of story expands on the concepts he teaches in his famed story seminars (considered a must by industry insiders), providing you with the most comprehensive, integrated explanation of the craft of writing for the screen. Using hundreds of films as examples, Robert McKee takes you through all the critical points which allows you to write a screenplay which both works and sells. 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.

What people say:

"Everything I know about story structure, I learned from Robert McKee." — Paul Haggis, two-time Academy Award winner, two-time Emmy Award winner, and seven-time Gemini Award winner.

"Robert McKee was perfectly happy as a writer. He didn't expect to become perhaps the most famous writing instructor in Hollywood, played by Brian Cox in 'Adaptation', and known for his work with the likes of Peter Jackson, 'Beautiful Mind' screenwriter Akiva Goldsman and John Cleese." — CNN
