    Sunday Times best seller

    Who would we be without stories?

    Stories mould who we are, from our character to our cultural identity. They drive us to act out our dreams and ambitions and shape our politics and beliefs. We use them to construct our relationships, to keep order in our law courts, to interpret events in our newspapers and social media. Storytelling is an essential part of what makes us human.

    There have been many attempts to understand what makes a good story - from Joseph Campbell’s well-worn theories about myth and archetype to recent attempts to crack the ‘Bestseller Code’. But few have used a scientific approach. This is curious, for if we are to truly understand storytelling in its grandest sense, we must first come to understand the ultimate storyteller - the human brain.

    In this scalpel-sharp, thought-provoking audiobook, Will Storr demonstrates how master storytellers manipulate and compel us, leading us on a journey from the Hebrew scriptures to Mr Men, from Booker Prize-winning literature to box set TV. Applying dazzling psychological research and cutting-edge neuroscience to the foundations of our myths and archetypes, he shows how we can use these tools to tell better stories - and make sense of our chaotic modern world.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "One of my absolute favourite writers." (Decca Aitkenhead)

    "There’s nothing else quite like Will’s approach, with its illuminating, scientific take on storytelling. All writers, no matter what their level of experience, are likely to go away with a new understanding that will deepen and nourish their work." (Craig Pearce, screenwriter of Strictly Ballroom, Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby)

    "Storr is irascibly good company, and has something approaching genius for marshalling his material." (Sunday Times)

    had to listen twice to overcome skepticism

    only on second listen with thorough notetaking i realized what an amazing book it is full of interesting scientific theories that are worth exploring. if you love to dive into modern psychology, get this book. In short this book is all about the art(& science) of character development instead of a generic plots and twists which gives it an interesting depth. this may not sound practical at first but will shine a new light on your approach to writing and understanding storys (and challenges our model of reality by exploring how we create storys in our mind all the time)
