Screenplay Format Books

Hey, i'm new here and i was wondering if someone could recommend about screenwriting books that explain how to format my script? not how to write a story, not how to write dialogs and not how to sell my script to Hollywood... just the format.

iv'e found some in Amazon but it's hard to decide which is good and which is a hack.

Thanks a lot.

Welcome to indietalk!


Formatting Your Screenplay by Rick Reichman
The Complete Guide to Standard Script Formats is a good (if older) book.

Welcome to IndieTalk!

If you haven't done so already, I recommend that you choose your preferred screenwriting software. I like Final Draft best, but Celtx is fine and has a free version.
