Goodreads Review: The Storytelling Animal

The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us HumanThe Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human by Jonathan Gottschall

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Overall good book. Gottschall states we are storytelling animals and goes on to back that theory. Even when we dream we are telling ourselves stories. Interesting point on changing beliefs:

“In fact, fiction seems to be more effective at changing beliefs than nonfiction, which is designed to persuade through argument and evidence.”

He touches on technology and stories and his thoughts on the future.
