A five-time Moth GrandSLAM winner and bestselling novelist shows how to tell a great story — and why doing so matters. Whether we realize it or not, we are always telling stories. On a first date or job interview, at a sales presentation or therapy appointment, with family or friends, we are constantly narrating events and interpreting emotions and actions. In this compelling book, storyteller extraordinaire Matthew Dicks presents wonderfully straightforward and engaging tips and techniques for constructing, telling, and polishing stories that will hold the attention of your audience (no matter how big or small). He shows that anyone can learn to be an appealing storyteller, that everyone has something "story worthy" to express, and, perhaps most important, that the act of creating and telling a tale is a powerful way of understanding and enhancing your own life.

From being so inept at public speaking that his supervisor wouldn’t let him make presentations to clients—even when he had done all the work—Vikas Jhingran went on to become a championship-winning public speaker who leaves a lasting impact on his audience. Few speakers and presenters understand speeches or presentations at a fundamental level. Most books have an overly prescriptive approach, using the tricks and tools of speech delivery that end up confusing the speech, instead of connecting with the essential part of speaking—that which engages listeners. In Emote, Vikas Jhingran lays bare his unique approach—connecting with his audience on an emotional level, rather than subscribing to a “right” way of speaking—which applies equally to one-on-one conversations, small team settings, and large audiences. His method will show you how to express your ideas clearly, quell your fear of public speaking, calm the sweating, stuttering and jitters that plague people before crucial presentations, and, overall, help you become an effective communicator.

This book explores the complexity of story text. Its thesis is that one can elicit the world view of a people from a close structural analysis of their narrative discourse. It is the first methodological explanation of how stories can be used as a source of cultural data and an illustration of how to do a rhetorically close analysis of a story text. A theory of narrative structure is presented which leads to a conversationally based definition of what can properly be called a story.

WHO WOULD READ THIS BOOK ANYWAY? (a special note from the Author) A lot of people have told me (including my wife and kids), that no one is ever going to want to read this dumb dog book. And, even if they were willing to read it, they told me for sure- no one would pay to read it. I'M NOT LISTENING TO THEM. I know most people like dogs more than they like people and spend a ton of money on doggie stuff because it makes them feel good. So for those of you who doubt there is a market for this book- here is the proof: At this very minute, as I am writing this, I am sitting on an American Airlines jet. I have just reached into the seat compartment in front of me and pulled out this SkyMall product catalog.
