About the Author
From the Back Cover
This is not just the most insightful book ever written on public speakingits 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, author of Give and Take and Originals
Nobody in the world better understands the art and science of public speaking than Chris Anderson. He has nurtured, coaxed, and encouraged so many speakers over the years (myself included)helping us to bring forth our very best performances onstage, even when we were at our most nervous and overwhelmed. He is the absolutely perfect person to have written this book, and it will be a gift to many.
Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love and The Signature of All Things
The TED Talk has reinvented the art of rhetoric for the twenty-first century. Goodbye to windy academese, scientific gobbledygook, pompous moralizing, PowerPoint chloroformwe now know that ideas worth spreading can indeed be spread far and wide, and with clarity and panache. This book may restore rhetoric to its time-honored place as one of the essential skills of an educated citizen.
Steven Pinker, Harvard professor, author of How the Mind Works and The Sense of Style
Here for the first time, Chris Anderson and the TED leadership team set out all theyve learned about the dos and donts of public speaking. Is there a single recipe for a great speech? Of course not. But there are some essential ingredients, which the TED team presents here with concision, verve, and wit (which are also some of the ingredients). An inspiring, contemporary guide to the venerable art of oratory.
Sir Ken Robinson, education reformer, author of Creative Schools

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
But you would need good amount of patience to read because, things are in detail plus author has shared real time experience in between, so you need to stay focused.
The quality of the book was good and was delivered before time!

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!
