    1. I just used this for my graduate class in storytelling and in many moments it allowed the creative process for some students to surge. There are many innovative, bendable and thoughtful entrances to building an advocacy story including mechanisms like 'making the cut' and 6 word reason. I allowed my students to define advocacy for themselves and then use that definition to help guide the development (intent/goal) of their story.

    3. Worth the five stars? We think so. We hope so. We enjoyed writing Living Proof almost as much as we enjoy meeting and working with the amazing individuals and groups committed to making a difference in the world with their stories. It's awesome work, and we've dedicated the book to all who are using personal stories to bring about positive change. And that's a lot of people. Please let us know how the book works for you.All good wishes,John and Tim (authors)

    4. This is a fantastic book for advocates on any level. I plan to purchase it so that I use it as a reference for specific projects. Very clearly written, with plenty of constructive advice, exercises and checklists.

    5. Living Proof makes storytelling accessible to everyone whether they are born storytellers or not. I read Living Proof in (mostly) one sitting, and I return to it often.
