Book Overview

A five-time Moth GrandSLAM winner and bestselling novelist shows how to tell a great story -- and why doing so matters.

Whether we realize it or not, we are always telling stories. On a first date or job interview, at a sales presentation or therapy appointment, with family or friends, we are constantly narrating events and interpreting emotions and actions. In this compelling book, storyteller extraordinaire Matthew Dicks presents wonderfully straightforward and engaging tips and techniques for constructing, telling, and polishing stories that will hold the attention of your audience (no matter how big or small). He shows that anyone can learn to be an appealing storyteller, that everyone has something storyworthy to express, and, perhaps most important, that the act of creating and telling a tale is a powerful way of understanding and enhancing your own life.

   Entertaining and Insightful!
Two people in the same month a year ago said to me, " Have you heard of Matthew Dicks, his ' Homework For Life' TEDtalk and his book, Storyworthy?" I wish I had picked it up earlier. I found a lot of insight into the art of telling stories that stick and move your audience in this book. I'm not a storyteller, but I'm pretty sure the author and I are similar when it comes to unraveling and using your personal narratives. There are a couple of my favorite book quotes on that matter. Storyworthy is a book you will pick up to become a better storyteller, and unexpectedly in the process, this book will enhance the value you place on your stories.

   Uesful, fun, and entertaining
A group is reading the book. As we practice our new skills together, we' re applying the skills. During the Pandemic, it's been a wonderful adventure to share with each other. Matthew uses great stories and examples to explain the techniques. Matt references video versions of some stories in the book and it is an easy read. He tells the stories in the book and it's fun to hear them. Since Matt has won the Grand Slam many times, I'm starting to notice how other storytellers use strategies. That has added another layer of interest. Everyone in the group is very pleased with the book.

   Self-stroking, minimal use --- the book is pretty terrible
I have a Bachelor's degree in Creative Writing, am a published author, and write professionally both at work and for fun. This book is an advertisement for the author. He won a bunch of story competition and his YouTube channel is mentioned in every chapter. It's hard to wade through his self- stroking, fake deprecating stories. If you would like to read about how cool he is, you should check it out. If you want a book about learning to tell a story, look elsewhere. I felt ripped off when I read it for work.

   Storyworthy is Purchaseworthy, with Valuable, Actionable Advice
It is winter break. The wind howls outside, but I'm not interested in it. Storyworthy is a book I hope will offer tips to improve my writing. Is it possible to kill my boredom while improving myself. It sounds too good to be true It may be. I don't think Storyworthy will be worthy of $9.99. Just a few pages in, Mathew Dicks destroys any apprehensions that I had. The book contains actionable advice and solid examples that follow the suggestions. Whenever I take on a new writing project, I like to read my copy full of highlights. I have a cheat- sheet with terms like Elephant and Back- Packing that are bullet- pointed for quick reference. Storyworthy has had a small effect on my conversations and social life. Storyworthy is worth every single penny.

   Immediately Practical
I heard Mr. Dick's interview on the Art of Manliness. My brother is writing about his training for the ididarod and my daughter is interested in writing. I bought this on audiobook and have been listening to it. The ideas for stories kept coming as I was doing homework for life. So did the insights. I need to ask my best friend if he will speak at my funeral. I wonder if Mr. Dicks' act of giving away secrets of story- telling is similar to his act of telling stories themselves, in that there are many, many secrets out there, and I look forward to reading that book too.

   Worth Your Time!
I liked Stephen King's On Writing. They both have entertaining autobiographical information and elements of crafting a story, but this book is more applicable in terms of building actual stories. Matthew Dicks uses methods of capturing memories such as the crash and burn exercise to store fresh memories with Homework for Life. The book is full of valuable information and it is very charming and captivating. This book is for anyone.
