Unlocking the Secrets of Conversational Storytelling
Storytellers have long used a variety of techniques to grab listeners’ attention, but few have ever investigated the principles of persuasive storytelling with the same depth as David Garfinkel in his seminal book, “The Persuasion Story Code: The Magic of Conversational Storytelling.”
Stories are still a powerful way to enthrall, motivate, and most importantly, persuade in a world where content is abundant, ranging from blog posts to videos. However, not every story is made equal.

The most skilled persuaders use a well-constructed code, which Garfinkel painstakingly breaks down for his readers.

He posits that relying solely on this age-old template might not always yield the desired persuasive results. Instead, he introduces readers to a myriad of story types, providing a veritable treasure trove of narrative devices that can be used to different ends depending on one’s objectives.
