Unlike its namesake, Save the Cat! Strikes Back is not better than its predecessor. It falls just a bit short of the admittedly high standard set by the original Save the Cat! book. While the first half of this book is excellent, I personally found the latter half of the book a bit confusing and unhelpful. That's primarily because I was reading primarily for generic storytelling advice for use in my novelling, short story writing, etc, rather than actually writing and selling screenplays, though. So this book does its job reasonably well. No major bombshells, but worth the read if you're interested in story troubleshooting or selling screenplays, and/or if you loved the original.

This was a school book I read a few months ago but I forgot to include. I forget the actual date I read it so I'm just putting in today's date.
