Format: Paperback
"Storyteller Uprising" starts out as a thrilling front-seat ride through a broadcast journalist's adventures pioneering online reporting and blogging from the late 1990s through to the new millennium. From Israel to Western Canada to Iraq, author Hanson Hosein's use of digital technology and audience engagement is typical of reporting today, but was revolutionary at the time, and often challenged the editorial policies of the media organizations for which he worked.

The book transitions into both an academic exploration of the evolution of mass media and a practical "how to" guide on how individuals, groups, and companies can effectively craft and tell their own narratives while avoiding the "middle man" of traditional journalism.

Great lessons emerge throughout the book. Perhaps the most important being that a truly great story that connects people "through characters, emotion, and conflict" is the most crucial element in attracting and keeping an audience's attention. Also, engaging and interacting with the audience is equal in importance to the quality of the story. Finally, the book provides step-by-step instructions to create a story strategy - covering both the story development and distribution.

With the rise of affordable and accessible storytelling tools and platforms of distribution, Hosein says you no longer need institutional approval to tell your story. "Storyteller Uprising" offers great examples of those who have successfully told their stories on their own, and provides those who aren't quite sure where to begin with the tools they need to get started. Great read and great resource!

Perfect marriage of book and device. Storyteller Uprising is the story of a traditional television reporter realizing the full potential of new digital media while embracing the power it instills.

The book is chock full of video links which illustrate the mistakes and missteps that force the author to keep refocusing on the story he is trying to create visually. This is where the medium of the Kindle Fire shines by filling a perfect void, you can view the video links immediately without referring to your computer.

The educational concepts are solid, if a little dry. But every text book needs to convey the facts.

This should be required reading for anyone entering journalism, and documentary film-making.

With so many devices, programs, apps and gadget whizzing around these days, it has become even more important to understand the "why" behind digital communication. Hanson Hosein's book is an insightful guide and memoir that helped me to reflect on just that.

Packed with case studies, personal accounts and historical references, Storyteller Uprising is an excellent tool for the digital expert, student or otherwise.

The book has many helpful links, so it was nice to have electronic version (or at least a laptop nearby) so that I could follow along with all the multimedia treasures included along with this read!

For anyone interested in media and how it's being transformed by social media and the digital age, this is a must read. It will also give you unique perspective and things to think about, only possible from someone like Hanson Hosein who has such a fascinating background in traditional media, new media and also academia. It's an easy read with important points on storytelling, how it's changed due to technology but also how it's stayed the same.

Though it might contain a few ideas to storytelling, it leaves me with the impression more of a social commentary that hasn't fully decided what it wants to discuss in depth. If you are looking for a book about storytelling in general, this might not be for you.
