What did you like best about The Leader's Guide to Storytelling? What did you like least?
Some of the stories were valuable. For a book on storytelling, I expected there to be more of them.
What was most disappointing about Stephen Denning’s story?
Painfully verbose, not accessible to average readers. A book intended for leaders should be quick and easy to read, knowing they are very busy people. This reads more like a textbook.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Graeme Malcolm?
Maybe Denning himself would be a better narrator. Graeme Malcolm reads with a steady cadence that will lull you to sleep. He doesn't always emphasize the key words and phrases, and he could not possibly sound less interested in the material.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
If you plan to read this while driving, buy a Five Hour Energy drink!

Some good general advice but the format it so convoluted that now half way through the book, I seem to have unlearned half of it through boredom and confusion. It is so dry. I bought the book because the person who read it sounded a bit like Sir Ken Robinson and I love his delivery. And while Graeme Malcolm modulates, it is just feelingless, like he is not really connected with the material he is reading? Yesterday, I noticed I have over 5 hours left to listen to, so I actually started a new book. I expect I will give up and get a refund so I can learn how to story tell from someone else. They are a few good solid arguments but perhaps if the author thought about how to convey the information, rather than trying to prove how clever he is, it might be a more dynamic and interesting read.

Good principle, well written and well read; but despite the subject, this is definitely a condescending and prescriptive 'how to' manual rather than an inspiration.
