An eye-opening and revealing book

Storytelling is been something that I naturally seem to gravitate towards and I haven't really known why until I listen to this book. Margot speaks in such engaging and thought-provoking ways that is not only personal to her but highly relatable to me and anybody else interested in stories. She uses a lot of media references from popular culture, and a lot of her own and other personal stories. I highly recommend this book to anybody who speaks and who is searching for their own story.

very practical guidance

the material is very practical instruction for day to day story telling of true to life stories, not creative fictional ones..I wouldn't call it the 'only story telling guide you'll ever need' (sorry Margot:) as I have found it even better when combined with the different perspectives of other well written books on the subject..the author is hilarious and her advice is down to earth at the same time..I will definitely listen to this over and over..
