The Raconteur is a 'Teach Yourself' book.   It descriges how one can become an oral storyteller or 'raconteur.'  Closely akin to public speaking, it is something which almost anyone can develop as a skill, providing they are willing to put in the time.

In the world of professional speaking there is a great deal of emphasis placed on 'telling stories' to make one's point.   However, there is very little literature on how to go about this.   In The Raconteur the author describes how to find material, how to put it together, and how to present it.

In The Raconteur it is the writer's sincere wish that, by familiarizing yourself with storytellng knowledge and techniques, your presentations will become even more interesting, moving, and effective.
