Thousands of professional and non-professional storytellers attend weekly or monthly shows. This book gives readers the tools and encouragement to elevate their own stories to make them feel confident, on any platform. “The Moth” is the leader among a growing wave of storytelling shows, podcasts, and radio broadcasts around the world. More and more people are emerging to face audiences and tell their stories.

Secondary Market: Entrepreneurs, Teachers, Salespeople, Marketing Professionals

Teachers, marketers, clergy, and business people of all kinds have applied the author’s unique storytelling structures and techniques to do everything from closing a deal to accepting an Oscar. Time and again, students from walks of life as scattered as a priest (2-time class-taker), a hospice-worker (3-time student), and a pole-dance business owner (3-time repeater) told him the same thing – they have so many stories –they just needed the tools to tell them.

Tertiary Market: Aspiring Authors, Memoir Writers, Shy People

“Storytelling” connects all people. But what stories to tell? This book is for everyone who wants the story they tell out loud to sound as good as it did in their mind. Like singing as well as they do in the shower, but with storytelling. The primary market for this book is the wide world of people destined to become the life of the party, who, with the book’s guidance, shall tell stories for their friends and audiences to appreciate (as much as they do).

Regardless if they identify as a “writer” or not, most everyone feels they have stories that are worth telling. Whether they are looking to spice up a first date conversation, put together their one-woman show, or tell a story that doesn’t lose their grandkids attention, the The Best Story Ever Told: Improv Strategies to Get Creative, Sell That Story, and Keep Your Audience on Edge approach can transform them from “somedayers” into “bucket list crosser-offers.”
