Brian McDonald has forgotten more about story-telling than Michael Bay has ever understood. Much of Brian’s wisdom can be found in his book, Invisible Ink, and the rest, shared over drinks at The High Bar with Warren Etheredge. Clearly, Brian believes in narrative structure, the Hero’s Journey and the power of myth.
In Peter Guber‘s new book, Tell to Win: Connect, Persuade, and Triumph with the Hidden Power of Story, the super-producer, demystifies story-telling while cementing its importance within our society and as the key to your individual success. It’s a tremendous text that transforms Guber’s Hollywood acumen into life lessons to rival Tony Robbins‘ ouevre.
