Very strange title for a book that had no story

The title is very misleading. I was hoping for guidance on how to be a better storyteller, but this book spent most of the time talking about the history of the Moth, rather than giving practical advice.

Marketing The Moth

Don't read unless you're fine with hearing the words 'The Moth' in every second sentence. Less about storytelling, and more focused around how great The Moth is.
