    1. One of the best books I've read, about writing in any form, although this is certainly geared towards situation comedies. This is a very inpsiring, practical and well written book, this author wants to share his wisdom and secrets with others and have an infectious enthusiasm. He's not an academic at all, but knows of what he speaks. I will seek out other books from this author very soon!


    2. Short and handy book to keep and reference all the while as you delve into sitcom scripts. The best part is the encouraging tone to Vorhaus's writing; it's like having a little motivational speaker in your back pocket.




    3. Jam packed and concise; A must read.It is a very easy read with a ton of tips and techniques for your sitcom writing toolbox. Very Kindle friendly.


    4. if you want to write, if you're currently writing on or trying to sell a sitcom, read this to sharpen your fundamentals. Simple and fun. Then keep it with your reference materials.
