Last week I wrote a reivew of the book Tell To Win by Peter Guber. It was a book that I enjoyed completely, start to finish. I had a very hard time putting it down. I’ve told many of my friends about the book and have shared it with some of my immediate family. However, I now have a chance to share the book with you. This book is about the stories that you tell an retell in order to move something in someone else. So, here is your chance to move me with your story.
Please tell me a story. It can be a funny story, a sad story, an inspiring story or a tragic story. The story can be in text form, as in a comment below or in the form of a video, leave a link to the video below. I’ll read and watch all of the stories and then choose one that I feel most moved by. I could be moved to laughter, tears or any number of emotions. The best story is going to be the one that connects with me.

Before I read this book I did not know who Peter Guber was. In case you are not familiar here is a quick bio on Peter:
Peter Guber, Chairman and CEO of Mandalay Entertainment Group, has been a force in the entertainment industry for over thirty years. He has told memorable stories in the films he personally produced or executive produced, including Rain Man, Batman, The Color Purple, Gorillas In The Mist, and Flashdance which have resonated with audiences all over the world, earning over three billion dollars worldwide and garnering more than 50 Academy Award nominations. Guber oversees one of the largest combinations of professional baseball teams and venues nationwide and is the owner and co-executive chairman of the Golden State Warriors.
In Peter’s new book “Tell To Win,” he provides individuals with an invaluable skill set – the power to tell emotionally resonant stories to persuade, motivate, excite and incite others. Telling purposeful stories has been the secret to Guber’s success and his aspiration behind the book is to empower others to use telling stories as the game-changer in their lives.
To validate the power of telling purposeful stories, Guber includes in this book a remarkably diverse number of “voices” – master tellers with whom he’s shared experiences including Bill Clinton, Tony Robbins, Steven Denning, Larry King and Mark Victor Hansen of the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series.
“In ‘Tell To Win,’ Peter Guber demonstrates that telling purposeful stories is the best way to persuade, motivate and convince who you want to do what you need.” – President Bill Clinton
