Hugely disappointing. One of the worst books on writing that I have read (or not read really, as I was unable to trudge through the whole thing). The numerous grammatical errors in this book are distracting enough to undermine the credibility of the book as a book about writing. The so-called master plots are not really plots at all, but broad story types. The "how to build them" part is just not really there. For a more solid plot-centric book about writing, I recommend Christopher Vogler's Writer's Journey, which is based on the work of Joseph Campbell.
