"A compass points four ways and so does Corbett, adroitly reconciling the complex interplay of forces in every character's life so that writers can create true depth on the page. His exercises make that complexity doable, and the examples he provides are remarkably incisive. If you want to know what makes made-up characters feel 100% real, let The Compass of Character be your guide. David Corbett is the grand master of character development." -Donald Maass, author of The Emotional Craft of Fiction

"With a deft hand, David takes us past writing cliches, charting a new course forward into developing resonant characters in film and print today. His insights have the potential to revolutionize the way writers understand the characters they develop. If you're serious about your storytelling, don't miss The Compass of Character." -Steven James, bestselling author of Story Trumps Structure

"You won't find a more thoughtful, more human approach to crafting characters than David Corbett's. Whether you're looking to add nuance and depth to your cast, or to heighten an arc with authentically high stakes, The Compass of Character will point you steadily north." -Jessica Strawser, bestselling author of Not That I Could Tell

"One of the best teachers today. Innovative, pragmatic and applicable. I read David Corbett before writing each novel." -Robert Dugoni, international bestselling author of The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell

"Corbett takes the obtuse, the dense, the high falutin, and he boils it down to practical advice. Every storyteller is trying to find lucid ways to unpack narrative construction, and he's done it flawlessly here. Corbett is a craft ninja." -Joshua Mohr, best-selling author of Sirens
