The Secrets of Storytelling: Why We Love a Good Yarn

In my work as a software developer I mostly encounter stories in the form of “user stories” – a way of communicating about a change or new feature by describing it as a story. In the wider world, and in the other things I do with my life, stories play a much larger part.
