Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Chris Anderson…has nurtured, coaxed, and encouraged so many speakers over the years…helping us to bring forth our very best performances onstage…He is the absolutely perfect person to have written this book.” Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times bestselling author
“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, New York Times bestselling author
“The TED Talk may well be the defining essay genre of our time: what the pamphlet was to the eighteenth-century and the newspaper Op-Ed was to the twentieth. TED Talks is the guidebook to this new language, written by the man who made into it a global force.” Steven Johnson, New York Times bestselling author
“This is an invaluable guide to effective presentations and catnip for all the TED fans out there.” Publishers Weekly
“Anderson shares the secrets behind the best TED presentations, believing that anyone can be taught the skills to deliver a compelling speech.” Booklist
“Narrating all but a small portion of this excellent audio, Chris Anderson provides thoughtful pacing and subtle intensity that are perfect for his discussion of succeeding on a TED stage. With his British accent giving an Old World tone to the production, he sounds intimately connected not just to his well-formed advice but also to the ancient practice of creating impact with the spoken word. Both his delivery and his memorable insights make his guide much richer than a typical how-to manual…Colorful examples of common mistakes and best practices make his meta-message powerful.” AudioFile
