5 Must-Read Books By STORY Thought-Leaders

My list of 5 must-read books on STORY follow.

But what are your (other) go-to titles?

As a TED talk and story “expert,” I get asked regularly enough about my favorites.

That said, I actually do have a TOP 10 list. But before sharing that I want to put on my “always learning” hat and ask after others that you think should make the list!
