About the Author
Michael is sometimes referred to as the "Storytelling MD." When asked why, he replies:
"Although I greatly admire the work doctors do to earn their MD, I took a different route. I didn't go to school for 8, 10 or 12 years. I've studied public speaking and storytelling skills since 2001. Also, I was wise enough to be born with the initials MD. Combine the two, and you get 'The Storytelling MD'."
