"If anything, it seems like the book was just clearly documenting what nearly every writer was already doing anyway..."

In the author's next book, Save the Cat Goes to the Movies, he documents "the key breakdowns of the 50 most instructional movies from the past 30 years".

So yes, it would seem even the author considered it documenting rather than creating the approach.
