Some university should give Sean Buvala an honorary doctorate in storytelling. The author of another Kindle book called DaddyTeller, he also has a website and offers videos and cd recordings. Sean gets under the hood of storytelling and shows you the parts of this skill and how and why they work.
In a section near the end of this book, the author includes a reminder that stories don't replace facts. Both are needed. But perhaps the greater mistake is to present facts alone without stories - for people "see" facts when they're illustrated using stories.
This is a "nodding" book. You know the kind - a book where you find yourself nodding Yes many times as you read. Sometimes, it's in agreement. Others, it's when a light goes on with a new insight. Either way, you'll hit the last page realizing you know a huge bunch more about storytelling than when you started. And that, by my own estimation, makes this book well worth its minor entrance fee!
Rather you are a writer; a public speaker; an ad writer or just someone who likes to share this, book will give you the recipe, the formula for making your story complete. I like how the author interweaves his own personal stories about cookies and cats and does it in a way that not only teaches a concept but truly drives home the power of story telling.
