A 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.
"TED Talks: The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking" Reviews
Not sure why I read this because I don't plan on giving any TED talks, what can I say when I see the words deal and book together I seem to black out. Regardless even though it didn't play any practical purpose as of yet I think this was a pretty good read because I don't personally know much about public speaking and how to prepare for that. It gave a lot of insight into how different speakers go about it and how you can use your own personal strengths to make your talk resonate with others. A lot of it was advice that seems pretty intuitive but is harder to apply, things like being comfortable and engaging the audience. The book even acknowledges these challenges and provides ideas for helping one deal with them. Usually when I have to talk to a group of people I can just wing it because as a student I never really give talks but I think public speaking is one of those practical skills that you can use day to day regardless.
Якщо прочитаєте цю книжку, то ваш світ зміниться, розділиться на "до" і "після". Ні, це не означає, що вам раптом закортить виступати перед великою аудиторією і просувати свої ідеї на весь світ. Просто ви мимоволі, але повсякчас почнете оцінювати публічні виступи інших людей, їхні гумор, цікавість, презентацію та загальний рівень підготовленості. Вони є красномовною підказкою, скільки часу витрачено на підготовку (і чи витрачався він взагалі) і наскільки сильно оратор вірить у свій товар. До речі, в першу чергу спіймала себе на такому несвідомому оцінюванні під час презентації однієї з осінніх книжкових non-fiction новинок. Багато ще роботи. Багато.
One of the best books about public speaking
Quite surprised how much I enjoyed this. Even dipped into the online videos on occasion.
I had the audiobook but would recommend a paper copy and a highlighter pen (I’m old-school) as there is rather too much to commit to memory.
Nicely put together but definitely something to pick and choose from, not all will apply to everyone.
I borrowed this book from a colleague and really recommend it as a choice for a high school library. Chris Anderson adopts a conversational tone of stating his opinion on the various ways that people can express themselves in a public speaking forum. I would highly recommend to my fellow language teachers ( high school or post secondary), students, and other individuals that are working on their oral communication practices.
