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.

Draw in your audience by telling stories
This is an excellent book on how to craft a story. The author explains the mechanics of turning an anecdote (retelling an event) into a story (drawing in the audience while narrating a chain of events). There are also plenty examples, such as movies, books, and stories that tell compelling stories. You should be familiar with many of them. It is easy to see how by applying the techniques, it makes the movie (or book or song) memorable even many years later. This book is useful for everyone - whether in a business setting, getting the audience engaged before starting a presentation or in a social setting, not rambling on and forgetting your point when talking to a group of people.
