“The most complete and honest book about the process of screenwriting I’ve ever read. It will inspire you, guide you, and galvanize you to write the screenplay you’ve always wanted to write.”  

- MICHAEL PRESSMAN, Emmy-winning director and showrunner: Chicago Hope, Picket Fences, Blue Bloods, Justified, Law & Order.

“It is brilliantly organized, splendidly written, and essential to read. This book is written with the savvy that accrues from years of writing and teaching experience and with the compassion and generosity that comes from remembering how it was to have only hopes and dreams.”

— HAL ACKERMAN, author: Write Screenplays That Sell: The Ackerman Way; UCLA screenwriting professor and department chair.

“Joe Gilford’s impassioned, autobiographical Finks is a testament to his parents who managed to maintain their indomitable spirit throughout their ordeal.”
