Product Overview
Have you ever wondered why we tell each other stories?

According to the author, there is a pattern in the stories humankind has told time and time again since the ancient past.

Stories about love where out of the many who have tried and failed, emerges a hero who would be able to defeat the hideous ogre, which may symbolize the dear damsel's parents, and triumphantly save the princess and be able to live together in everlasting bliss. But if so many have failed, how does the hero in fact do this incredible and seemingly insurmountable task?
