Magic of Metaphor

Review:

"The Magic of Metaphor is one of the most richly rewarding books I have read in a very long time - every page you turn brings a new revelation, a new insight, a new understanding, in a simple and beautiful way. Images come tumbling out, and with them truths about ourselves: who we are, what we are, and most importantly, how the tools we need for life are to be found within each and every one of us." --Richard Reed - Better Business

Nick Owen has produced a bit of magic in this brilliant book; it is a collection of stories which can be used in a variety of settings, from teaching, to counseling. This is a highly enjoyable and readable book which inspires, and delights the reader on every page. The stories can be used as they are or adapted for different situations but each and every one of them has a message for most encounters in life. I found the last chapter particularly useful as it provides a guide to how the stories can be used in different situations. This is a book I will continue to use in many situations from telling stories to children to teaching adults for many years to come. I will be highly recommending this book to both my students and colleagues. --Julie Foster, Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Health Medical Sciences and Social Care University of Cumbria

Synopsis:

This work is a collection of stories designed to engage, inspire and transform the listener and the reader. Some of the stories motivate, some are spiritual, and some provide strategies for excellence. All set out to promote positive feelings, encouraging confidence, direction and vision. The stories contained in "The Magic of Metaphor" focus on values, responsibility, and leadership in all its forms. They have been specially selected to promote change in people's ideas, attitudes, beliefs, visions and behaviours. These stories act as reframes, challenging and disturbing our existing frames of reference, recharting our accustomed maps of the world, and shifting us away from our limited thinking towards new learning and discovery through the use of effective metaphor. As a result, we are encouraged to understand our world from a new perspective, and are provided with powerful ways to generate greater choice in our lives.

Containing 16 suggestions (or tips) for effective storytelling, advice on organization, style and storytelling skills, and a selection of stories that can be adapted and developed, this work is a sourcebook for counsellors, health workers, psychologists, professional speakers, managers, leaders and NLP practitioners, as well as for teachers, trainers, therapists.
