All writers should at least read/listen to Robert McKee's Story. The 6+ hours were incredibly valuable to me, I've had his tome on my shelf for years, its sheer size continued to put me off. Over the course of a week I was able to polish this off and I'm wishing I had bought the audio version years ago.
McKee is a great narrator which makes the audio book fly by. His understanding of storytelling is masterful and I think most writer will get something from it.
Highly recommend it.

Ignore S. Buck's review that states this is only 5 chapters of the book. It is the entire book in an ABRIDGED version, as the description states. It is just broken up into 5 Audible "chapters" that do not relate to the chapters of the book. Doubtful that this person actually listened to the audiobook.
In any event, it is a good intro to McKee's book, and may encourage you to buy the complete print edition for a fuller experience of McKee's teachings.

It is great that Robert Mckee narrates this sensational how-to-REALLY-write-working-screenplays audiobook. I am not just sure it is comprehensive, since I doubt that 6 hours wouldn't fully deal with the 450 pages that are in the book. I have the book as well but have listened to this audiobook already twice since I haven't had thoroughly read the book. Excellent while cycling/commuting to home/work.
As a keen wannabe film-artist, I'd say the STORY itself is the greatest book about the issue I've ever met. Pure facts, great in-depth examples and no-nonsense. This guy so knows what he is talking about. Book 5 stars, audiobook 4.

This book has a major reputation - and well deserved! The best book I've come across on the topic of screenwriting, enthusiastically narrated by the author himself. A must listen for anyone interested in mastering the craft.

An absolute must for any aspiring screen writer. McKee knows what good writing is; and he explains how to achieve it in a way that’s not only easy to understand, but also makes you want to sit down at the nearest desk and get to it.
it's a must read for every filmmaker. I keep listening to certain chapters and keep finding new details.
