The best books have the capacity to change lives, sometimes by the sheer force of ideas communicated with felicity and grace. Bruner’s short, compelling work Making Stories is just such a book. Bruner [makes] sharply visible what otherwise could be only indistinctly felt. He trains his searchlight on the complex and diverse uses not only of the conventional, easily recognized stories of myth and literature, but also of obscure stories, those found…buried within our culture, our institutions and ourselves.The Los Angeles Times Book Review
