By Randy Olson

 Ask a scientist approximately Hollywood, and you’ll most likely get eye rolls. yet ask anyone in Hollywood approximately technology, and they’ll see buck indicators: moviemakers understand that technology may be the resource of significant tales, with the entire drama and motion that blockbusters require.
 
That’s an incredible mistake, says Randy Olson: Hollywood has much to educate scientists approximately the way to inform a story—and, eventually, how one can do technology higher. With Houston, now we have a Narrative, he lays out a stunningly basic approach for turning the uninteresting into the dramatic. Drawing on his particular history, which observed him go away his activity as a operating scientist to release a profession as a filmmaker, Olson first diagnoses the matter: while scientists let us know approximately their paintings, they pile one second and one aspect atop one other second and one other detail—a stultifying procession of “and, and, and.” What we'd like as a substitute is an realizing of the elemental components of tale, the narrative buildings that our brains are all yet hardwired to seem for—which Olson boils down, brilliantly, to “And, yet, Therefore,” or ABT. At a stroke, the ABT strategy introduces momentum (“And”), clash (“But”), and backbone (“Therefore”)—the basic construction blocks of tale. As Olson has proven by way of major numerous workshops around the world, while scientists’ eyes are opened to ABT, the influence is astounding: without warning, they’re not only conversing approximately their work—they’re telling stories approximately it. And audiences are captivated.
 
Written with an unusual verve and exuberance, and outfitted on ideas which are acceptable to fields some distance past technology, Houston, we've a Narrative has the ability to rework the best way technological know-how is known and preferred, and eventually how it’s done.
