    2. Not very helpful I was very excited to start on this book after reading so many good reviews about it I had my pen at the ready to underline valuable passages and take notes I expected it to give me specific techniques and tips to improve my storytelling skills.But alas, my expectations were too high and unreasonable I came away with a little bit of appreciation for story and what it can do, but that s about it No specific techniques or tips that could improve my skills as a storyteller.The mai [...]

    4. After seeing it referred to in another book, I had this book sitting in my wishlist on for months Then I slipped it into a shipment of books that I ordered and it sat on my shelf for several months Finally, during my summer holidays, I pulled it out and began to read.Annette Simmons is inspirational about the power of story I was reading the book as a ministry leader, rather than as a professional speaker It reminded me of the power of non rational communication, the power of community, the pow [...]

    5. I absolutely enjoy storytelling and believe this ancient art form to be the foundation of civilization If you are interested in storytelling, I would recommend you visit Doug Lipman, which the author of this book recommends as well storydynamics Also, a famous storyteller that I have grown to love over the years is Leo Sofer palaceofstories He offers free downloads of his stories as podcasts before they make it to the buy me page so, I would encourage you to hop on over and give his stories a li [...]

    6. My favorite book written about storytelling and storytelling techniques The six types of stories help anyone understand how useful stories can be in communicating with people who are you and what you stand for A must have for entrepreneurs, I can also recommend this to writers, artists and specifically for anyone who blogs.

    7. If you are familiar with the movie Inception then you know the line What is the most resilient parasite Bacteria A virus An intestinal worm An idea Resilient highly contagious Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it s almost impossible to eradicate An idea that is fully formed fully understood that sticks right in there somewhere A wise man once told me Don t let the truth get in the way of a good story I think that applies here It reminds me that people simply do not understand fact or anal [...]

    8. Anyone who has an interest in how storytelling can be used for effective communication in business as well as personal situations should read this book It makes an incredibly compelling and clear case for the use of story and highlights a range of potential applications and benefits from using a story based approach As I made my way through the book I was hoping for some how to information The new chapter in the paperback edition, Story Thinking as a Skill , was certainly the chapter I found m [...]

    9. What did I learn from this book What do I want to remember Story of 3 men 1 laying bricks, 1 building a wall, 1 building a cahtedral storytelling can help us see the cathedral Ask a 5 year old if she can draw and she will enthusiastically say Yes Ask a group of adults the same question and they will hesitate our lives are a story and we are already telling that one perfectly Jewish Teaching Story naked truth is rejected at every door Clothe the truth in parable and it is warmly received Storie [...]

    10. I read this book for work.I would recommend The Story Factor to anyone interested in learning how to convert what they ve learned from reading, writing and telling stories into a potential success factor in the world of work.Simmons explains how to use storytelling as a way to influence others It sounds tricky, and it is, but it s essential for people working in sales, marketing or, like me, copywriting The author does, however, emphasise that it is important to use this skill for worthy causes [...]

    11. I did not find this book useful Annette Simmons focuses on why story is important and its effectiveness as a tool of influence and persuasion, but not so much on how to construct and use story effectively At one point she argues that one can t really tell another how to tell a story it s too instinctive and individual a process So not much help there She also continually intertwines telling stories with living our story The result is confusing, abstract, and philosophical than practical I much [...]

    12. This book ran hot and cold for me Some chapters I found boring and others inspiring I think if it had some exercises or challenged me to think about relating my personal experiences to the stories in the book it would have engaged me It did enlighten me to the power of storytelling and for that it was worth the read This is not a read it and master it type of book It is a starting point and a good introduction.

    13. A must read for salespeople, business owners, politicians, and anyone who needs to learn how to influence others which is basically everyone on the planet.This is an incredibly good book, explaining very clearly how to use the power of stories to help people see things your way.As I said, YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK.

    14. A great tool to have in your library if you are part of leading a company or organization Simmons does a marvelous job gathering stories that really truly get the point across I use this book in my storytelling class and the students love it.

    15. This is of a business public speaking book, and not a very good one at that Very little insight into storytelling, and could have been re titled How to Win Friends and Influence People by Telling Stories I knew I was in trouble when on page 30 she made the factual error stating Heaven s Gate members believed Halley s Comet was their salvation it was actually Hale Bopp and spelled Halley Haley There are much better books on storytelling and public speaking This one missed the mark.

    16. I got this book from a training class that highlighted storytelling as an effective communication tool This book is a good further reminder of the power of stories The first and last chapter were the weakest, but I found the rest very readable and useful Now we ll see if I am able to apply it

    17. I thought the author did a fabulous job of sharing case studies and examples about how to leverage story in your business marketing As someone who speaks on influence and persuasion for government staff, this book will become a valuable resource for me in my future teachings.

    18. Annette Simmons is impressive She reminded me why I love storytelling and being a storyteller I think I somehow had forgotten.I ll be reading parts of this book over and again, I can assure you.

    19. I believe this book documents a very important principle of life, that we all know intuitively, but haven t articulated Its a great book for leaders and parents alike.

    20. Didn t really leave an impression to me to be honest Less about the mechanics of a story, and about a series of story I don t feel really resonates.

    21. Pleasantly surprised Entertaining and informative Provided good tools to impliment story telling into my speeches and employee interactions.

    22. Finished a refresher on this book as I prepare to go through Slideology again If you are new to Story Telling, this is a GOOD PREMIER The key take away from the book is thinking of the 6 key stories every story teller needs to be able to tell structure.The Story Factor By Annete Simmons 6 Kinds of Stories You Must Be Able to TellPeople dont want information, they want stories through which they can have faith in you You can connect and influence people with 6 kinds of stories1 Who I Am Stories [...]

    23. I didn t know what to expect, but this book kind of grabbed me It was full of wise advice, a lot of it in pithy form The book is about the importance of stories, including how to tell stories that influence And, of course, it uses a lot of little stories and vignettes to make its points.Facts appeal to the rational brain and often don t convince us Stories appeal to our emotions.Facts are one dimensional, stories multi dimensional Where facts are direct, stories are subtle and indirect i.e gen [...]

    24. Here s a funny story about how I came to read this book It was one of several the chief marketing officer of the company I worked for, for the last 10 years, listed as a book we could choose There were several groups of 10 reviewers, and each group was supposed to pick one of the listed books to read and review I chose The Story Factor and enjoyed it I was almost finished with the book when, three days before the all hands conference during which we were among other activities going to review an [...]

    25. I will put this on my list of top ten books on personal development A how to book on influencing others that begins with self reflection and the integrity required to project authenticity and believability This book is very well done, and I see how it earned its spot in the 100 Best Business Books of All Time Much like Stephen R Covey who wrote The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, among other things Annette Simmons is not a fan of technique That is to say, she believes that only basic goodne [...]

    26. As others have pointed out, it s important to be clear about what Simmon s very good overview is focused upon business communication, and where, why, and when to use stories to influence others in a business setting As such, The Story Factor stands as a good summary of how stories can be part of your strategic communication plan Its strength is that it is a compelling, expansive argument, one that can be given to business colleagues who still doubt that story can be persuasive.However, if you re [...]

    27. This is a very well written book, and the prose is easy to follow, and difficult to put down This makes it all the easier to follow the subject matter I was in two minds, depending on which chapter I was reading The early chapters are useful for an understanding of story telling and what the essence of it is all about There are a few chapters How to tell a good story, Storyteller Dos and Donts which help anyone wanting to concretely implement storytelling The rest, however, are useful if you ar [...]

    28. I don t recall why I placed this on my list of books to read, but there it sat for six and half years Now that I have partnered with the world s foremost storytelling experts to deliver their Storytelling for Leaders program in the United States, I rescued this book from my to read shelf and read it on their recommendation The author s work certainly informed and educated the workshop creators, who tip their hat to Annette Simmons expertise, but the entities are separate That being said, they ar [...]
