Review

""Talk Like TED" is a smart, practical book that will teach you how to give a kick-butt presentation. But Gallo goes deeper than mere instruction. This book is ultimately about discovering what moves you and then creating the means of moving others with your vision."
--Daniel H. Pink, #1 "New York Times" Bestselling Author of "To Sell Is Human "and "Drive

""I found [Gallo's] book compelling and educational, and I'm now ready to shorten and reformat my speeches."
--"INC
""His advice goes far beyond the usual 'think positive and show enthusiasm' generalities, focusing instead on specific tweaks and tactics to elevate the caliber of a presentation and explaining the science behind the secret... Gallo's book is crammed with valuable insights as well as practical do's and don'ts. Read it and you, too, can stand and deliver a compelling, convincing and memorable talk, speech or presentation."
