Every gift tells a story...

The Science Of Storytelling

Stories make us who we are - but what makes a really good story? Looking at everything from Hebrew scriptures to the Mr Men, via Booker Prize winning literature and box set TV, this is an exploration of how master storytellers manipulate us and compel us. Using psychological research and neuroscience, this is a journey towards an understanding of the ultimate storyteller - the human brain - and how we can not only tell better stories, but also use those stories to make sense of the chaotic world we live in.
