This book is aimed at the reader who has already had some experience with storytelling and is ready to learn more. Given the authors professional background, much of the book is focused on 'performance storytelling' so may not seem all that relevant to those that are interested in storytelling in other settings (particularly business/organisations). However, I particularly enjoyed the chapters on 'What is a Story?', 'Learning the Story' and 'Discovering the Meaning'. The information in these chapters is valuable and applicable to all storytelling, regardless of the context/environment. Compared to 'The Story Factor', 'Improving your Storytelling' is a more practically focused book and offers more 'how-to' type information.

My notes from the book can be found on Webby Clare.
