This guide to effective public speaking—informed by the wildly popular TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) Talks—gives readers tips for winning over audiences big and small: wedding guests expecting a great toast, a client waiting to be wowed, or a lecture hall full of multitasking students. Anderson, whose nonprofit organization, the Sapling Foundation, runs TED, has a plethora of excellent advice to offer based on past TED talks, including some of the most successful and popular ones. He covers important topics such as making a personal connection with audiences, explaining complicated subjects to laypeople, priming people to accept counterintuitive ideas, and cultivating a sense of showmanship. He also addresses aspects of preparation, such as knowing what vocal styles to avoid, planning attire, and managing nervousness. The prose can be hard to muddle through—true to the topic, it reads more like a transcript of a speech than a book—but this is an invaluable guide to effective presentations, and catnip for all the TED fans out there.
