Polletta brings empowerment and life to the use of stories, and more intricately, the power words have within the frame of persuasive communication. I was impressed by the expounding throughout, with underpinnings reflective of how metogymical inference bring about neurological responses, as she explains word-craft and the art of storytelling intended to promote an agenda and prompt unconscious approaches to effect social change.

The book was more worn and yellowed pages than description said. I was disappointed and wished I hadn't paid that price.

well , my grandson loves it

my grandson adored horrid henry!! ( he is six....) these are fun to listen to in the car- a bit pricey, though.

Left wing garbage. Don't even consider buying unless it's required for a class.

This book is very informative. The author seems to know her stuff. But it also, is a shining example of Jargon. As in, there is way too much academic jargon, or egghead language, than necessary. Jamie Whyte would not like this writing style. Not saying it's a deal breaker, but if that kind of, "look at me i am really smart and i like to make that known," is not your thing, than steer clear.

Anyone who wants to better understand the stories we tell, the stories we collect, and the stories we value, ought to read this book. I refer to Poletta's book constantly in my own endeavors -- she is just brilliant.

Any student or scholar of history, politics, and social research would benefit from the thoughtful way Polletta outlines the culturally-bound conventions of narrative and storytelling. It Was Like A Fever examines the narrative tradition by weaving questions about storytelling into a tapestry of examples from the social world. The author sets the foundation of the exploration of narrative (a term she uses interchangeably with "stories") by first asking why stories matter.

Stories matter because a prevailing cultural sense about them exists. We have strong ideas about when and where a story should be told, what kind of story is appropriate, and who is expected to tell that story. Story-tellers are subject to scrutiny, and as the audience, what we decide about who can tell which stories leads us to either reproduce or dismantle the status quo. Use of narrative among disadvantaged groups has risks and benefits. Polletta believes that the risks are derived more from the norms of the who-when-and-where of giving narratives than from the actual content of the narrative. They draw plot lines with beginnings, middles, and ends that often adhere to general principles that lead audiences to judge or interpret their subject.

As an audience considering a story we are ambivalent, which leads to several tensions in story-telling. I believe these tensions are helpful to keep in mind during narrative analysis and research. First, we believe that stories are both unique and commonplace. There are narratives that can be employed by everyone, but also narratives that are only acceptable when told by certain people. Second, tension exists between deception and truthfulness in story-telling. Often the demands of constructing a compelling story compete with the teller's need to tell an absolute truth. Third, conflicting ideas about the social value of stories exist. Polletta shows how stories can be powerful and powerless, and this tension is most meaningful when we consider who does their telling - the advantaged or the disadvantaged person.

Linguistic dynamics embedded in the terms story-tellers employ have consequences important for historical research. In her example, Polletta investigates the relationship between meaning and process in the 1960 student lunch-counter sit ins. Metonymies within student accounts of the protest, particularly the use of words like "spontaneous" that describe process, shaped the meanings of protest and mobilization. Although "spontaneous" can mean unplanned, the concepts employed when students interpreted spontaneous were "moral, local, and urgent" (p.28)

A point that academics and students of history must not overlook is that context is crucial when examining the consequences of narratives. If a narrative is given in a context where truth is of primary importance, the audience expects the details of the story to be consistent with each re-telling. As Polletta shows, this has real consequences for women who are victims that must give accounts of their victimization multiple times in a legal setting. This illustrates how contexts have attached conventions about what a story should be. When narratives do not meet these expectations, we devalue or discredit them.

Polletta examines how the powerful and powerless use stories by looking at the separate narratives of members of congress and activists when referring to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The example illustrates the constraints placed on one's ability to refer to the past. History is malleable - its re-telling depends on who tells the story about history and what is their purpose. The disparate narratives about Dr. King point out how the way in which we, as a collective of citizens, honor the memory of Martin Luther King Jr. reframes his message. The message becomes reflective instead of active. Instead of a day of action and service, we take a day off.

In the conclusion, the author asks how our beliefs about history are shaped - and possibly compromised - by common conventions about story telling. Anyone who wishes to analyze narrative accounts of the past needs to take this message seriously. Everyone has expectations that are based on conventions about what a story ought to be. Researchers hold normative expectations about what makes a good interview and often equate a more confessional tone with a better or more accurate account. Breeching these conventions has its risks but conforming to them also carries penalties.

Sports Day is Horrid Henry's least favorite day of the school year. Not only does he always lose every event, but his brother Perfect Peter always takes home an armful of trophies.

Henry is determined to make this year different, and when the event doesn't get rained out and Henry realizes he's not going to get away with playing sick, he decides to get creative.

Mayhem follows, as well as a surprisingly apt reference to Greek mythology.

The opening of this book leaned pretty heavily on clichés, but it got better once it got going and Henry put his plans into effect.

I enjoyed Tony Ross' illustrations throughout the story. They had nice hint of the classic Edward Gorey look.

I read this with my seven-year-of son, who also seemed to enjoy the second half more than the beginning. He demanded we read the last four chapters in one sitting.
