Representatives of those storytelling genres and more speak their minds in this book. from the eBook A Storied Career: 40+ Story Practitioners Talk about Applied Storytelling, by Katharine Hansen Ph.D. Although I am one of the 40 Story Practitioners who were interviewed by Katherine Hansen for her book, I can assure you that my endorsement of her work is based on her engaging style of writing and the collective insights of the other 39 practitioners.
