Done right, a talk can electrify a room and
transform an audience’s worldview; it can be more powerful than anything
in written form. This “invaluable guide” (Publishers Weekly) explains how the miracle of powerful publicspeaking is achieved, and equips you to give it your best shot. There is no set formula, but there are tools that can empower any speaker.
Since taking over TED in 2001, Chris Anderson has worked with all theTED speakers who have inspired us the
most, and here he shares insights from such favorites as Sir Ken
Robinson, Salman Khan, Monica Lewinsky, and more— everything from how to craft your talk’s content to how you can be most effective on stage.
