This is awesome! Thanks for thoughtfully analyzing the power of stories, including the dangers. Thanks for bringing Peter Brooks' book to light. For many years, I've worried every time someone in my field (the workplace learning field) hypes the power of stories. Yes, they are powerful, but they also can persuade us when we shouldn't be persuaded, push us to think things we shouldn't think, make us buy products and services we shouldn't buy. Nicely done!
