A story is a living thing.

And living is a Story thing.

But not all narratives are stories.


Based on the life-changing course of the same name,

and drawing from the path-breaking 70-hour
interactive documentary,

this book will forever strengthen

your relationship with the stories in your life and work

as it reveals the principles and practices that underlie all uses of Story.


Offering the most definitive exposition ever produced

on the nature of stories, The Biology of Story

crosses the boundaries between art and life and fields of practice.


Whether you are a creator telling stories in old or new media,

a professional seeking tools to deepen and transform your practice,

or just a human being seeking to live more keenly,

filmmaker, author and teacher Amnon Buchbinder

and 44 guest teachers from a wide range of fields

bring you powerful concepts guaranteed to super-charge inspiration,

open transformative insights and deepen creative thinking.
