  • I totally agree. I bought my copy of the Story Solution for these very same reasons. And I would like to highlight the 10th – The Art of Storytelling. The encouragement and inspiration that I got from reading this book helped me slowly master this art. Storytelling success takes more than just theories and principles, it takes a lot of hardwork and even heartaches. And the support, confidence and hope that Eric extends through this book has allowed me to grow professionally. Thanks
