Story: Style, Structure, Substance, and the Principles of Screenwriting by Robert McKee

An  interesting book for the novel/short-story writer.  Especially given the parts where he discusses what you can and can't do in a movie that you can do in a novel, where you've got to flip it.

Many useful ideas on story structure, genre, characterization.  Only book I've read that actually delves into how  to make your characters three dimensional.

I found the chapter on "Principles of Antagonism" rather weak, and sometimes he grinds personal axes in  a way that did not add to it, but a useful book overall.
