Publisher's Summary

The long-awaited third volume of Robert McKee’s trilogy on the art of fiction.  

Following up his perennially best-selling writers' guide Story and his inspiring exploration of the art of verbal action in Dialogue, the most sought-after expert in the storytelling brings his insights to the creation of compelling characters and the design of their casts.  

Character explores the design of a character universe: The dimensionality, complexity and arcing of a protagonist, the invention of orbiting major characters, all encircled by a cast of service and supporting roles.

I question whether Robert wrote it

I consume of lot of these books. They mostly say the same things. But I like McKee. He's entertaining and has good insights. This book was well worth it. Different perspectives I hadn't considered before.

However, the plethora of mispronounciations has me questioning whether he actually sourced this material or if he just put his name on it. Doesn't really matter. But curious, still.
