The world's foremost business leaders are also great storytellers. For example, industry titan Jack Welch has told how his mother instilled enough tough love and confidence in him to overcome the fact that he was the shortest kid in his class and had a severe stutter. Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon.com, often tells a story of setting up the company's first office in a converted garage.
The Power of Storytelling collects the best of these stories, which listeners can use to strengthen their own communication. It's great for anyone who needs to lead, inspire, and motivate an audience in a business setting, whether they're writing speeches, pep talks, interview talking points, employee letters, or Op- Eds. With anecdotes from Bill Gates, Sam Walton, Ted Turner, Steve Jobs, and many more, this is an inspiring and immensely useful audiobook.

Redundant and repetative
I had high hopes for this book but found it to be a collection of short stories that the author would then suggest you tell to others by saying "I am reminded of a story..." and then just repeat the story. That's all well and fine the first 3 times... but I couldn't bare anymore of the formulaic and redundant pattern. No real structure being revealed here.

Good storytelling reference book
What does Sean Pratt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Nothing. If I wanted this as a reference book, I would prefer the printed copy.
Was The Power of Storytelling worth the listening time?
Yes, if you are interested in listing to one story after another.
Any additional comments?
If you are interested in stories to drive home a point, this book will be of interest. However, I felt the audiobook was a little boring hearing one story after another. In my opinion this book is more of a reference catalog of stories to highlight your point in a speech.
