This ends every chapter with exercises. That's a great thing. Buuuut... I listen while I drive, which I happen to do for a living. So I can't say anything about how good or bad they are.
The rest was pretty good. He breaks down 12 or so classic screenplays. Well done.

I'm a screenwriter and I know many professional screenwriters. This is not a book for aspiring screenwriters or active ones. If you loved Cassablanca you'll hate the way Fletcher turns a classic into a math problem. No writer I know knowingly "reverse engineers" the plot to create the best "cognitive effect." They write stories. This book is for students, not writers. But even students would expect at least a little magic with the math. Nothing to see here. Just a dude who thinks he cracked the code and wants to sell a math book because it's easier than selling a screenplay.
