    I love Emmanuel Oberg s first book, Screenwriting Unchained, and have found this to be a good addition to my toolset as a writer It is designed to be read non sequentially, with information organised into chapters based on common notes you might get from a studio However, there is real value in simply swimming around and reading at your leisure Doing so I found advice that would help with the rewrite of my current animated TV series, advice I didn t even realise I was looking for.
