It is different to other writing craft books in that it is evidence based and draws upon good quality research to support its suggestions.

Positive Review

I have read a number of similar (and brilliant) books, but none with the depth and articulation of will storr's volume.

Neutral Review

The research based text offers ideas about key elements that must be in stories and ideas about how to quality assure ones own writing.

Neutral Review

    I initially rebelled against the title, thinking that storytelling is an art, not a science.

    Most books on writing cover old ground, but will storr's book brings a different perspective.

    Parts of the book are weighed down with research trying to prove something that is not clearly stated.

    The author never gives the writer some concrete advice about how to apply his ideas on story.
