Don't listen while driving!

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?
