Leaders’ Guide to Storytelling : Mastering the Art and Discipline of Business Narrative by Stephen Denning.
2011.
“Stories are trapdoors, escape hatches, portals through which we can expand our lives and learn about other worlds. They offer guideposts to what is important in life. They generate meaning. They embody our values. They give us the clues from which we can discover what ultimately matters. In the past five years, I have learned much from studying both the power and the limits of storytelling. I am happy to have the opportunity to share those learnings here with you.”

However, the economic effects of highway infrastructure remain a matter of debate. Politicians and policy analysts are today considering a major new U.S. transportation bill within an environment of shared concern about federal deficit reduction and reluctance to increase taxes. This monograph informs the debate by reviewing the literature on the effects of highway infrastructure on the economy and drawing conclusions from this evidence regarding the future federal role in highway policy.” P. iii
