Why stories? 
Tell to Win by Peter Guber
People listen to and connect with stories because they quickly enhance the teller/listener relationship allowing for a greater exchange of empathy, people understand stories because they simplify complex ideas and people remember stories because they ignite a part of the brain that assigns meaning – the key to remembering.

How to tell a good one? 

A compelling story needs a challenge, a struggle and a resolution. Try creating an element of surprise by setting an expectation and then violating it or using metaphors and analogies to evoke images, create an emotional connection and enhance memory.
