Loved "Selling Your Story In 60 Seconds" by Michael Hauge and got the revised edition of this 20 year-old book, hoping for another gem. Whether it wasn't revised enough is hard to say, but either way the somewhat cocky attitude that you pick up in Mr. Hauge's writing in this one lacks the maturity and humility gained from the extra 20 years of experience with which he writes in "Selling Your Story." Honestly, "Selling Your Story In 60 Seconds" is the book to get for his take on screenplays--even if it isn't in the title of the book.

If you have any ambition to write screenplays, this is a wonderful book, beautifully typeset, with extraordinary insight into what makes characters and stories work, and what makes them fail. If you want to get a preview, check out Michael Hauge's dissection of "A Few Good Men" which you can see on YouTube.
My screenwriting ambitions may never become more than ambitions, but I can honestly say that this book has already immeasurably increased my enjoyment and understanding of the art of storytelling, both in books and on the screen. Bravo!

Great book, easy read. I'm a danish screenwriter and just sold my third script. This is one of the great books on screenwriting that I always return to just before starting a new project. Especially part 1 on structure and character, I don't really have an opnion on the actual "selling the screenplay" because the danish funding system is very different than in Hollywood. There is a lot of books on character and structure etc. but this book covers the elements in a concise and easy way - a great tool for refreshing your memory and make sure you remember all the important ingredients that goes into a great script. I'm a big believer that there's not just one screenwriting book that covers everything you need. You have to find a couple of books that suits your creative needs and Hauge's book is definately one of the books that helps me.

I learned SO much from this book. The concepts and examples are practical, easy to understand, and rooted in decades of the author's experience.

Screenwriting is a very difficult, uphill journey, but this book brilliantly illuminates the path. A++

P.S. Michael Hauge's video seminar, "The Hero's Two Journeys," is also very worthwhile.

A powerful series of lessons told in clear, compelling fashion. From what makes a story concept marketable to the mechanics of Options, Development Deals and essential knowledge of making the deal once you've written that killer screenplay, Michael Hauge really delivers the goods.

No more stucks with ideas, characters, dialogs, because he opens the door to make it easier. You'll find here from the step one to the last step. I had my script ready for marketing and after read his book I made changes. Now I feel more confident with my script. Just buy it!!!

Michael Hauge is my writing coach. Before you hire him read his books, watch his DVDs, listen to his CDs and read the how-to articles on the website. Take all that in and then you are closer to the magic. I am a professional non-fiction writer and writing a screenplay is a challenge. Michael's wisdom, with a healthy splash of humor, is the perfect tonic.

Just finished my first feature screenplay and this was helpful on many levels, especially for the second draft I was working through while reading.
