"'Writing dialogue is a challenging art. McKee's book DIALOGUE is a great tool for writers.' John Lassater, Chief Creative Officer, Pixar & Walt Disney Animation Studios * 'McKee's DIALOGUE is a mother lode of insight and inspiration for any writer. His teachings have changed my career and changed my life. Robert McKee is in a category of one.' Steven Pressfield, bestselling author of The Legend of Bagger Vance, The War of Art, and Gates of Fire * 'McKee teaches what is not yet taught. He shines his unwavering analytical light on the structure and invisible substructure of dialogue. He takes a craft that is often considered instinctual or magical and reveals its chemical secrets.' Terry Johnson, writer/director, winner of the Tony Award, Olivier Award, Critics' Circle Theatre Award, and Writers' Guild Award * 'DIALOGUE is a masterwork. There's nothing harder to teach. Now this book exists. McKee has written an essential book akin to The Elements of Style for all writers.' Margaret Nagle, writer/producer of Golden Globe-winning TV Series Boardwalk Empire, winner of the Writers Guild Award, Emmy, NAACP, Golden Globe, and PEN * 'A rich and useful companion for practicing writers.' Kirkus Reviews * 'I used to think great dialogue couldn't be taught. You either had an ear for it or you didn't. That was before I read McKee's DIALOGUE. He's a wizard at explaining the unexplainable.' Sarah Treem, writer/producer, co-creator and showrunner of Golden Globe-winning TV Series The Affair, winner of the Writers Guild of America Award and Emmy Award nominee"
