About the Author:

RANDY OLSON is the writer/director of the feature films Flock of Dodos: The Evolution-Intelligent Design Circus, (Tribeca ‘06, Showtime ‘07), Sizzle: A Global Warming Comedy (Outfest ‘08), and author of Don’t Be Such a Scientist: Talking Substance in an Age of Style (Island Press ‘09). His work focuses on the challenges involved in communicating science to the general public and on the current attacks on mainstream science in fields such as evolution and climate science. He is a former marine biologist (Ph.D. Harvard University) who achieved tenure at the University of New Hampshire before changing careers to filmmaking by obtaining an M.F.A. in Cinema from the University of Southern California. He is an adjunct faculty member with the Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies at USC. His production company, Prairie Starfish Productions, is based at Raleigh Studios in Los Angeles. DORIE BARTON has been a professional actor in the film and television industry for twenty years, and a script consultant and writing coach for fifteen. Her work as a consultant and coach has led her to story development work with screenwriters, filmmakers, novelists, literary managers, and production companies, working on independent and studio projects, and both narrative and documentary films. Her work on camera as an actor has included several television series as a regular and recurring character, numerous guest star roles, and work in independent and studio pictures. She is also a multi award-winning stage performer, and has been a member of the esteemed Evidence Room theatre company since 2001. She holds a BFA from the renowned California Institute of the Arts, created by Walt Disney to provide artists with a well-rounded education in all art forms. BRIAN PALERMO is an actor with a wide range of performances in television, film, and top comedy venues. Palermo graduated from the University of New Orleans with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications. He has been a performer, director, and teacher with The Groundlings, Los Angeles’ premiere comedy theatre for over 15 years. On the other side of the camera, Palermo was a staff writer on the animated series Histeria! for Warner Bros. and has written scripts for Disney’s The Weekenders and Dave the Barbarian. He’s also written and produced promotional commercials for Fox and The Disney Channel, among others.

Review:

"We want people to take what we say to heart AND a story does it best, BUT most of us don't know how to turn our thoughts into stories, THEREFORE most of us need to read this book."        - Alan Alda, Actor, Writer

"A great guide to bridging the gut/data divide." - Andrew Revkin, NY Times, Dot Earth Blog

"The lessons, insights and exercises in this book apply way beyond the academic world. There isn't a communicator out there - whether that's a salesperson, a CEO, an environmental campaigner, or yes, a scientist - who won't benefit from absorbing the lessons so effectively communicated here." - Thomas Hayden, co-author, "The Science Writer's Handbook"

"Storytelling is meant to connect a message to a person's heart, mind and belief system, thus inviting one to take action or make a change in their life.  CONNECTION provides a road map to do just that.  Reading this book will help you make your messaging more impactful." - Jeff King, Author of "Beyond Drama

"We sponsored the very first version of the Connection workshop which for us was both eye-opening and heart opening.  Randy, Dorie and Brian helped us think about the stories we want to tell, and to speak from our feelings as well as from our intellects.  This is so important, yet rarely talked about by scientists and bureaucrats (like me!). This book now takes their teachings even further in thinking deeply about stories and how to tell them effectively."
- Shelley Luce, Santa Monica Bay Restoration Commission and Foundation

"Based on their extraordinary narratives, Randy, Dorie and Brian have combined and sculpted "Connection" into an amazing resource for anyone with a story to tell (even scientists!)." - Ron Britton, Wildlife Biologist, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
