No matter your experience level, you'll probably find yourself referring back to this book while working on your projects.
This book was published in the early 2000s, so it lacks information about online animation. It would be nice to have an updated version with more about writing for a web series, but I think that it's still very useful as is. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone interested in writing for animation.

Kindle edition is not edited properly. During the chapter on reading the script, the character's names are typed diagonally, which makes it cumbersome. I then spent 30 minutes on the phone with Amazon Kindle Customer Service, and they are processing a refund. Since I can't finish the rest of the book, I can only give 3 stars. And whoever edits the Kindle edition needs to have his/her head checked. I've seen so many errors with Kindle editions of books that I wonder if Kindle ebook formatting and editing is outsourced to a foreign country where English is not the first language.

I didn't know who he was before buying the book but you bet I learned who he is and what he's done. Great person to read and learn from. The book was very inspiring but specially was technically estimulating to the level that for the first time in my life I think I can give it a shot and write something. He explained writing the script not as an art but a science. Most of the times when he mentioned that writing is also an art he refered to this a "something that takes years to develop" so instead of making me feel bad about this, he went ahead and taught me the basics, the basic structure, the basic approach and it was killer to have some actual samples of his work the reinforcing his words. The books is technical so dont expect an "about my life" book which is great... it's clear that Jeffrey has forged his talent and reputation by his work and not by saying how great he is. The book starts technical and ends in a more conversational way when Jeffrey tells you his "points of view" on different media types including internet. One thing I would love to ask him is to release an updated edition or even a new book on writing for a) writing for the internet and b) full length picture writing. When he wrote this book, internet animation was booming, now it's here so, some advice from him on this regard would be useful.
