Earliest library book on organisational storytelling for librarians?

Some time ago I posted that I had discovered the first library professional book to deal with the application of storytelling for developing libraries (See previous articles 1 and 2). This week, I stand corrected, with the discovery of Marek's (2011) book on Organizational Storytelling for librarians. Marek's book on organisational storytelling for librarians is published by the American Library Association and was released in 2011 according to this press release: http://americanlibrariesmagazine.org/news/ala/using-storytelling-effective-library-leadership

In fact, Marek is even offering a training webinar on the topic on August 15, 2012 (See: http://infopeople.org/training/organizational-storytelling)

I am currently perusing the book to see its coverage and how it treats the topic.
