Wait, I can have it for free?

You can download a PDF or EPUB version of Working with Stories for free. But please, if you find the book useful, consider making a donation or buying a print or Kindle copy. I put two and a half person-years into the book project, and that investment definitely wasn't free. If you really can't pay (even the cost of a cup of coffee), pay it forward by using the book for something good. But if you can help out, I would appreciate the help very much. I'd like to keep doing this work!

And by the way, if you're looking for some help doing PNI projects, I offer coaching and support.

More stuff to download

For printing: If you've downloaded the book to print, you might also (or instead) want to download the high-DPI version just for printing. It's 111.4 MB, so you're going to want to get a cup of coffee while you wait.

For presenting: You can use any of the book's figures in a presentation, as long as you follow the guidelines of the Creative Commons license (attribution, share alike). Download the figures here in PDF format (77.4 MB) or PPTX format (35.4 MB).

Previous editions: If you are curious about how the book evolved over time, here are PDF versions of the first edition (2008) and second edition (2009), both of which were available only as e-books.
