I'm glad I did. First of all, it was an easy read - very funny at times, and I could easily understand everything in the book. The next thing is, it works. All the things and exercises worked like a charm.
For me the best part was the pages on Sitcoms. I actually feel like I could write one. Everything about the chapter was clear, right down to the way the page should look!
Anytime you can have a fun read, and learn, you're ahead of the game.

I don't understand why there are any negative reviews. This is such an informative and comprehensive guide. I don't have a single criticism. A must buy for anyone even thinking about writing comedy.
