MEDIA REVIEWS
Is there a single recipe for a great speech? Of course not. But there are some essential ingredients, which the TED team sets out here with concision, verve and wit (which are also some of the ingredients). An inspiring, contemporary guide to the venerable arts of oratory. * Sir Ken Robinson *
Excellent; easily the best public speaking guide I have read. -- Tim Harford * Financial Times *
Nobody in the world better understands the art and science of public speaking than Chris Anderson. He is the absolutely perfect person to have written this book, and it will be a gift to many. -- Elizabeth Gilbert
This is not just the most insightful book ever written on public speaking-it's also a brilliant, profound look at how to communicate. If you ever plan to utter a sound, this is a must-read. It gives me hope that words can actually change the world. -- Adam Grant, Wharton professor and author of ORIGINALS
The TED Talk has reinvented the art of rhetoric for the 21st century - we now know that "ideas worth spreading" can indeed be spread far and wide, and with clarity and panache. Behind this revolution lies Chris Anderson, who had a vision that powerful ideas can improve the world and has developed a coherent philosophy and a set of guidelines for compelling communication. -- Steven Pinker
The TED Talk may well be the defining essay genre of our time: what the pamphlet was to the 18th-century, and the newspaper op-ed was to the twentieth. TED TALKS is a guidebook to this new language, written by the man who has made it a global force. -- Steven Johnson, bestselling author of HOW WE GOT TO NOW
For anyone who's got a story to tell, or an audience they want to engage - this book is a must-read * Forbes *
Anderson shares the secrets behind the best TED presentations, believing that anyone can be taught the skills to deliver a compelling speech-TED-style or otherwise. It's all presented very naturally and with an upbeat, positive tone .... readers will be able to use the techniques for any manner of public speaking. * Booklist *
[Anderson] covers important topics such as making a personal connection with audiences, explaining complicated subjects to laypeople, priming people to accept counterintuitive ideas, and cultivating a sense of showmanship. He also addresses aspects of preparation, such as knowing what vocal styles to avoid, planning attire, and managing nervousness. This is an invaluable guide to effective presentations, and catnip for all the TED fans out there. * Publishers Weekly *
