The Story Factor: Inspiration, Influence, and Persuasion through the Art of Storytelling by Annette Simmons

The Story Factor explains what a powerful tool narratives can be, and unravels the art of telling your own stories. Stories are far more effective than mere facts or figures when you're making a presentation or trying to inspire people to take action.
