Falling in Love with a Story

Want to learn how to tell a story straight from your heart--read this book!

I have attended Doug Lipman storytelling workshops. The man knows how to tell a story!

Like some targeted readers, I am a professional storyteller. How intellectually stimulating it was for me to experience Doug's story-learning process. It felt so good for Doug to take me with him as he showed how he makes each story his own.

Doug Lipman seamlessly weaves together three concepts: honoring your audiences, telling only stories that you can love and that speak to you, and practical story-learning techniques. He found methods to engage both my right and left brain and I voraciously chewed and swallowed each and every page. This book is rich with no extraneous wordiness or meaningless trivia. Lipman makes every word count within a logical whole cloth of thought about ways any teller of tales can enrich their audiences by becoming one with their stories and their audiences.

Kudos to a master teller and writer!
