The Raconteur is a ‘teach yourself’ book.    It describes 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.   

                        The Raconteur has been written by a Toastmaster for Storytellers.

            It is the writer’s sincere wish that by familiarising yourself with storytelling

            knowledge and techniques, your presentations will become even more interesting,

            moving, and effective.

Hi, your book sounds great. Where would I get a copy (preferably electronic, as I have less room than books I want to read :-).
