Todd Klick's book is fundamentally sound, extremely innovative and unique in concept. It's leading edge, groundbreaking stuff. No one else has ever come up with an idea this intricate - it's like he discovered the DNA code of successful screenwriting, and proved his hypothesis with scientific documentation! Exhaustive and clever research - a whole lot of hard work went into this. Looking forward to his next book.”
