    1. The suggestions and observations in this book are spot on I reread the book every few years, taking something different away depending on where I am in my development as a writer Very useful.But, oh my stars, the Love Letter to Manness this is It s not so much that Hatcher dislikes women so much as that he rarely seems to think of us at all The few occassions when he uses female pronouns instead of male to talk about what playwrights do feel forced upon him by an editor, rather than organic to h [...]

    2. This is a very good overview of playwriting with examples drawn from a select but wide ranging in style and focus group of well known and respected plays, including a script analysis of Hedda Gabler Directed at an audience who are not beginners, it has an academic feel that never talks down to the reader The examples from the author s own playwriting experiences were interesting and illustrated rather than embarrassing, like I ve found them in other writing texts.

    3. Jeffrey Hatcher does dispense come knowledge here on what make Aristotelian style plays work And yes, should you be interested on being picked up and performed fast you could learn a basic insight into how a play is conceived HOWEVER, this book does not dispense information that could not be gained from reading a large amount of plays and seeing work Not to mention some of the info is not accurate when he brings up The Changeling by Middleton and Rowley, he says that Tomazo and Beatrice are in l [...]

    4. Is there a special place in hell reserved for people who rip pages from a library book I hope so, because some hell bound idiot left this book a few pages lighter those pages being the exercises on coming up with drama worth ideas I might have to follow the excellent advice in this book to stage a play in which a diligent young reader the young part is the fictional part turns vigilante, policing her fair city against the scumbags who would deface public property, especially library books I laug [...]

    5. I was only halfway through this book before I needed to return it to the library I ve made several notes and decided that I should probably own this It has given me a fair deal of insight into the writing process that I hope I will be able to make use of.Update I now own this book and finished it Totally worth it I m already planning my re read I disagreed with some of the things said in the interviews but everyone is entitled to their opinion , but not much I m totally pumped to write that brea [...]

    6. Wow, this book is amazing If you are any type of writer playwright or journalist , you can learn something from Hatcher in this book.

    7. This book is an interesting read not dry and boring like many similar books and an asset not only to aspiring playwrights but to story writers in general.

    8. A book I ve turned to for a while now when dealing with any narrative issues, not just playwriting This was the book that made structure begin to work for me.
