A methodical approach to novel writing, touching on key areas of development, structure, and composition. While the author approaches his topic with some hubris, he's also entertaining and informative. A very helpful book if you like to approach writing from a structured plan, and not from a 'discover as you go' approach.
While there may be some useful information here...somewhere, the author is sufficiently obnoxious to make the whole unendurable. What he doesn't know he pretends to know in the most pedantic way imaginable, and what he knows he makes incomprehensible to his readers--those unlucky few who have wandered into this mire. Add to this his wretched attempts at humor and dismal lack of taste in television, film, and literature, for which he provides plodding descriptions ad nauseam as models for emulation, and you have Story Engineering--an affliction to be avoided at all costs.
