The book is all over the place. And many (!) of the examples herein contradicts directly with the 'formula' Blake Snyder is trying to set up.Furthermore he uses a lot of self made terms for expressions and terminology that already exists.

Fascinating, yet humorous analysis of how we tell stories as part of our culture, and the simple, yet interchangeable bones of every story. Or as the author says, we can see how the movies Bad News Bears and Ocean's 11 really are the same story. And yet, a very readable work, for those of us who aren't interested in writing movie scripts, but interested as to how the story is formed.

I'm a novelist, not a screenwriter. But there is a lot a novelist can take from Snyder's Beat Sheet. I personally loved the book, although I can see from some of the reviews that some might not agree.
