We live our lives through story, through narratives that we tell ourselves and share with others. Worldwide, we have been doing this, and recording it, for tens of thousands of years. Today, we do this in literature and poetry, in memoir and essay; we do this in journalism, film, and in the songs that carry over the airwaves. Businesses, organizations, and public officials tell their stories in ever-evolving forms of communication, advertising and public relations.
