Humans love to tell stories, whether they're funny, tragic, scary, or poignant. But why is this true? How do stories shape us? What purpose, if any, do they serve? And what do we learn from them? These are the questions answered in this fascinating work. Narrator Kris Koscheski has a gentle, friendly voice that is a wonderful complement to the author's ideas. He varies his pitch and tone to effectively create a story within a book about storytelling, using his skills to make us forget that this is essentially a work of analysis, not narrative. Koscheski knows how to emphasize words and phrases for effect and, although he sometimes gets bogged down in exposition, makes the subject fresh and interesting.
