Write Screenplays That Sell, by Hal Ackerman is a thorough, clear, concise and practical manual for writing screenplays. The reader is given useful ideas and techniques that will enable them to build their story idea into a screenplay scene-by-scene. I enjoyed the writer's GYM EXERCISE at the end of each chapter. It involves the student while they are learning and that always contributes to a more satisfying learning process.

Ackerman's book is an excellent resource for people who want to learn how to write a solid screenplay, a book to add to your reference library of writing tools. If you're serious about screenwriting you'll refer to it again and again.

Armchair Interviews says: Write Screenplays That Sell is not a loaner book. Direct would-be borrowers to the nearest bookstore to get a copy of their own.
