Storytelling has come of age in the business world. Today, many of the most successful companies use storytelling as a leadership tool. The reason for this is simple: Stories have the ability to engage an audience the way logic and bullet points alone never could. Whether you are trying to communicate a vision, sell an idea, or inspire commitment, storytelling is a powerful business tool that can mean the difference between mediocre results and phenomenal success.

I had expected this book to deconstruct the elements of storytelling as they relate to business. Instead, the author offers a variety of stories to use in specific business situation. This book is a "what to say," not a "how to say it," guide.
