Much of the book is a collection of extended examples of cliches. After listening for what seems like an eternity to a generic story that is so familiar you become bored, the narrator closes the thought with "don't write like that." He is often pretentious and spends little time developing concepts of what is good. There is an endless amount of citing from historical and contemporary cinema often with little more than mere tacit approval. Anyone who is the least bit observant and has seen even one hundred films knows the majority of what is contained in this version of the book.
