"What's Your Story" by sankalp kohli -- Book Review


Before starting to review this book I like to tell you a story. Nearly 20 months back I attended a workshop on storytelling that contains description of some basic skills needed to tell the story. The workshop was awesome and it told a lot .But I was wondering about - Is there any book exists on this topic? I found some but none was so effective that it can tell every meaning out of it in some kind of story.

The time passed and few days back I got a chance to look on the book and guess what? it was from the same writer (Sankalp Kohli) who was there at workshop. I read a book “Who moved my cheese?” in just 40 minutes and same was the case with this book “What’s your story”?

This is a book carrying a material work about features of storytelling. The book carries all sorts of examples that today’s world is using in moving up the ladder. The book defines a way of thought how you can convert anything in favor of you by just telling the stories around it. It shows us the path to find that inner skills which we forgot while in a journey. Since from our child hood we are telling stories one or the other way in dealing with various condition so why not now?

The book tells us the sample stories that changed the world and itself by making some beautiful simple stories around it. The story of 7up who captured the market instead there was no gap left by Pepsi and coke. The art of telling story’s by a CEO who changed the whole workforce mentality in the time of recessions. The story around Steve jobs.

The book teaches a right thing that story’s do magic. It really do, when we try to learn the facts it’s very difficult to learn it but the same thing when we get in the form of stories it becomes simpler. The story helps us in connecting with the topic, thing, emotions, people and every other thing. It really get’s simpler to understand anyone and to be understood by anyone.

The book is not talking anything that we don’t know but it really helps us understood what we know and why not forget but to use it as the “Art of Storytelling”. The price is not a huge just buy it from kindle and read this amazing thing on a bus, train or plane that time is enough to transform you from something to something good.

In simple word the book is different and has the charm. All the managers, leaders, teachers, students and whosoever dealing with the communication yes it is an important pearl to carry with you.
