"Will Storr has written a masterful guide to writing with The Science of Storytelling. . . As with any good read, Storr takes the advice he's spent years studying and teaching. He's an excellent writer. Reading The Science of Storytelling is in itself a pleasure. . . For the time being, while we're here, we're storytelling animals. Will Storr has contributed a wonderful guide of how to master the craft of invention. To pull a random quote from the formative years of my childhood, as Axl Rose sang, use your illusion."-- "The Big Think"
