Storytelling for Personal Learning: Andy Andrews

I just finished reading the Traveler’s Gift by Andy Andrews which is a New York Times Best Seller.  Please ready a synopsis of the book here.

This is no ordinary self-help book of the usual genre.  It is truly inspirational and uplifting to the point that I could hardly wait to read more each day.  What impressed me most about the book was Andy’s ability to tell a series of stories that combine historical facts from the lives and times of such luminaries as Presidents Truman and Lincoln and Anne Frank with unforgettable life lessons that awaken the mind and engage the heart. 

How often we forget that history has so much to teach us and that the art of story telling is probably one of the most influential ways to impact learning and to foster behavioral and attitudinal change.
