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)

It's all the usual information (plan, practice, focus).
It was well structured and had interesting anecdotes.
However, the book felt a bit long winded and padded out.
The same information could have been given much more concisely!
TED is a global community and so is its staff. It is headquartered in New York and Vancouver, but the collaborative and global nature of its work means that TED has staffers, advisors and volunteers worldwide. Under his leadership, TED has thrived by welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. TED’s leaders believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.
Perhaps you are already familiar with TED Talks. Although much of the material in Anderson's book is based on the Official TED Guide for public speaking, it would be a mistake to assume that the value of the material ends there. Its core principles have almost unlimited applications in all manner of speeches, talks, and presentations that include (of course) a TED Talk but also a public introduction of a major new product or service, a startup proposal to obtain VC funding, a keynote or wrap-up at a conference, or the results of a team's due diligence on an M&A candidate.
However different the nature and extent of presentations may be, Anderson asserts: Your number-one mission as a speaker is to take something that matters deeply to you and rebuild it inside the minds of your listeners.Read more ›

Chris Anderson makes very good points about public speaking. Certainly a book every speaker should readPublished 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
Bizarrely I didn't find it as well-written as TED talks are presented. I think they were padding it out a bit but otherwise a reasonably useful read.Published 9 months ago by Adam Potter
