Here a summary of the book:

Beginning with wonderful tips and advice about the art and presentation of storytelling, this is a complete resource about how to build a storytelling career. Storytellers come to their careers centered on the stories they love and soon realize that in order to make a living at what they love, they must build a business. This in-depth book tells them just how and what to do in every detail from choosing a sound system to building a Web site to using podcasts and setting up an office. There is even a chapter on how to plan for retirement. Each chapter is a story in itself, beginning and ending with different traditional folktale openings and closings.

This dynamite book merges the yin and yang of storytelling and business.

Here are other storyteller's reviews posted on Amazon.com:

"Beginning storytelling professionals are lucky, because they get to start out fresh with de Las Casas' detailed, thorough handbook to help them figure out what they want to do with their storytelling businesses. I would have loved to have had this book when I officially started my part-time storytelling business 3 years ago (after having spent the previous 9 years telling stories in library and bookstore settings). Still, I'm thankful to have it now. It's helping me to rethink my current sound system setup plus marketing strategies. The book brought up little things that should have occured to me, but didn't. For example, it's an excellent idea to have one's name with phoentic pronunciation and a short introductory sentence to give to presenters. I am thankful that this book exists! I own a copy, and refer to it regularly." - F.S. Dowler, Musical Storyteller

"Every full-time and part-time storyteller would benefit greatly by having this book on hand. It presents a complete guide to being successful as a storyteller. I wish it had been available when I first began storytelling in schools, libraries and festivals a dozen years ago. It is a source of everything you need to know in order to work as a professional storyteller." - Bob Linsenmayer, Singing Storyteller
