Wired for Story: The Writer's Guide to Using Brain Science to Hook Readers from the Very First Sentence - Lisa Cron "Wired for Story" might be disappointing if you're looking for deep, complex insights into scientific research, but otherwise hands out a lot of useful information, especially for those who're starting as authors, and are still hesitant, or lack knowledge, about what makes a good story. This said, I think even more seasoned writers may find it interesting, if only as a reminder of what they're already doing right.

This book isn't about writing well per se—it won't really help with grammar, spelling, sentence structure and other syntax matters—but about storytelling: how to weave a compelling story, how to keep the reader entertained (and not lose him/her along the way in digressions or flashbacks), and so on. In that regard, screenwriters, and not only novelists, may find it worth a read.
