When I first realized I might have a story that was suitable for movie treatment I bought a couple of books which told me all about how to get ideas etc. but I couldn't find any hard copy on how to format. The general advice was read some manuscripts and learn from them. Good advice except these aren't types of manuscripts submitted the first time. I finally consulted Dr. Roger Busfield (author of The Playwright's Art) and he said Formatting Your Screenplay was the best book for learning how to correctly format a screenplay. He was right. It had the information I wanted in an easy-to-access form.

Coupled with The Playwright's Art it is an exclent addition to any beginning script writer's library.

The print is from 1994, which makes some of the standards outdated. There are a number of special cases of formatting not discussed. There should be shorter and more abundant examples. Also, do you slug items, such as BOOK, LOCKER, CLOCK, as is suggested here? I believe this is wrong.

This is not a sit-by-the-fire-and-enjoy-a-brandy sort of book. It does exactly what it says it will do and will teach you how to format your screenplay into a format that Hollywood readers expect. Every year thousands of screenplays are rejected without being read because they don't look like screenplays. Add this tool to your kit and at least get your scripts read.

I took Mr. Riechman's class at Georgetown University, and partnered with him on a few screenplays. Rick is an excellent teacher, and really does know his stuff. In regard to previous comments on the format being wrong in the book, it was an error on the part of the printer. I wish I knew where Rick was these days, I could use his sage advice. At least I still have the book :)

I own just about every book ever written on how to write a screenplay. When it comes to formatting questions, this is the book I always turn to. Simple and concise, it delivers on the nuts and bolts aspect of producing a marketable screenplay! I also had the great pleasure of taking a class from Mr. Reichman, and highly recommend that aspiring screenwriters jump on the opportunity if presented!
I think this book teaches you the basics about script formatting, but sometimes you get the impression the author is doing guesswork instead of delivering valid information. And the funny thing: Even some of the examples are wrongly formatted.
