The Science of Story 

Since before recorded history, across all walks of life, people have gathered to tell and hear each others' stories.  Storytelling shepherded the human brain to become the complex machine it is today -- and it remains the key to understanding how we make sense of the world around us.

Although processing language is no easy task, only a few areas of your brain are solely concerned with hearing and understanding speech. 

By engaging your audience's entire brain, you keep them interested and trigger visceral memories and reactions.  The more personal touches you add, the more likely they are to retain the content of your story.
