TED Talks: The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking by Chris J. AndersonA New York Times Bestseller
For anyone who has ever been inspired by a TED talk…
...this is an insider’s guide to creating talks that are unforgettable.
Since taking over TED in the early 2000s, Chris Anderson has shown how carefully crafted short talks can be the key to unlocking empathy, stirring excitement, spreading knowledge, and promoting a shared dream. Done right, a talk can electrify a room and transform an audience’s worldview. Done right, a talk is more powerful than anything in written form.
This book explains how the miracle of powerful public speaking is achieved, and equips you to give it your best shot. There is no set formula; no two talks should be the same. The goal is for you to give the talk that only you can give. But don’t be intimidated. You may find it more natural than you think.
Chris Anderson has worked behind the scenes with all the TED speakers who have inspired us the most, and here he shares insights from such favorites as Sir Ken Robinson, Amy Cuddy, Bill Gates, Elizabeth Gilbert, Salman Khan, Dan Gilbert, Mary Roach, Matt Ridley, and dozens more — everything from how to craft your talk’s content to how you can be most effective on stage. This is the 21st-century’s new manual for truly effective communication and it is a must-read for anyone who is ready to create impact with their ideas.

But a goal that is more pressing, is to solve problems that my reading have about reading and books, and the books they need to read to accelerate their careers.

Reading is the best way to rapidly gain a deep, and broad understanding of a topic or discipline. You can read an entire book every day, but it will cost you. I am selective about the books I choose to speed read. I look out for the most important ideas in each book. Ideas that can advance my long-term goals. I read everywhere when I have even five minutes. Some books can be read just once, providing instant gratification, and then you feel you can pass them on to somebody else.
