In this huge and ambitious book, the distinguished author approaches screenwriting from a set of principles, but then gives a detailed analysis of how story works. Our  reviewer commented on his approach: 'As McKee puts it,  the art of story is the dominant cultural force in the world,  and film is its dominant medium.'
