From the master of STORY, DIALOGUE, and CHARACTER, ACTION offers writers the keys to powerful storytelling. ACTION explores the ways that a modern-day writer can successfully tell an action story that stands apart from all others. In collaboration with former co-host of The Story Toolkit, Bassim El-Wakil, legendary story lecturer Robert McKee guides writers to award-winning originality by analysing the action genre, highlighting the challenges and, more importantly, showing how to master the demands of plot creation through innovation and ingenuity. ACTION is a must-have addition to the McKee storytelling oeuvre.

MEDIA REVIEWS

ACTION inspires action. McKee and El-Wakil have created the guide I've been looking for all my years as a professional screenwriter. ACTION helps you understand how and why the thing works - how its heart beats, how it thinks, and most important, what makes it move. For a professional action writer it almost feels like cheating. ZAK PENN, American screenwriter and director; 'Robert McKee's books offer lucid analysis, perceptive insights and fruitful challenges to those of us who practice the magical arts of storytelling. I highly recommend his latest, ACTION. Buy it, read it, put it to work.' MICHAEL HIRST, creator, screenwriter, series producer of Vikings and Billy the Kid
