Chris Anderson is the curator of phenomenally successful TED talks - over one billion views and counting. He is passionate about the importance of public speaking, something he describes an a crucial life skill and which we should be teaching in school, and of the amazing power of direct human-to-human communication, recorded on video, in the internet age.

In his first book, Talk This Way, he shares his passion for public speaking and offers a master-class in how to do it - not just how to give a great TED talk, but how to stand up and speak persuasively in front of any size of audience, whether that is a school classroom, making a video blog, in a business meeting or at a conference. The book brings together his experience of over two decades as the curator of TED, in which time he has listened to over one thousand stage talks, with advice from 30 of his all-time favourite TED speakers.

The Art of Asking Book Description :

FOREWORD BY BRENE BROWN and POSTSCRIPT FROM BRAIN PICKINGS CREATOR MARIA POPOVA Rock star, crowdfunding pioneer, and TED speaker Amanda Palmer knows all about asking. Performing as a living statue in a wedding dress, she wordlessly asked thousands of passersby for their dollars. When she became a singer, songwriter, and musician, she was not afraid to ask her audience to support her as she surfed the crowd (and slept on their couches while touring). And when she left her record label to strike out on her own, she asked her fans to support her in making an album, leading to the world's most successful music Kickstarter. Even while Amanda is both celebrated and attacked for her fearlessness in asking for help, she finds that there are important things she cannot ask for-as a musician, as a friend, and as a wife. She learns that she isn't alone in this, that so many people are afraid to ask for help, and it paralyzes their lives and relationships. In this groundbreaking book, she explores these barriers in her own life and in the lives of those around her, and discovers the emotional, philosophical, and practical aspects of THE ART OF ASKING. Part manifesto, part revelation, this is the story of an artist struggling with the new rules of exchange in the twenty-first century, both on and off the Internet. THE ART OF ASKING will inspire readers to rethink their own ideas about asking, giving, art, and love.

Daring Greatly Book Description :

**Now on Netflix as The Call to Courage** Every time we are introduced to someone new, try to be creative, or start a difficult conversation, we take a risk. We feel uncertain and exposed. We feel vulnerable. Most of us try to fight those feelings - we strive to appear perfect. In a powerful new vision Dr Brené Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability, and dispels the widely accepted myth that it's a weakness. She argues that, in truth, vulnerability is strength and when we shut ourselves off from vulnerability - from revealing our true selves - we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Daring Greatly is the culmination of 12 years of groundbreaking social research, across every area of our lives including home, relationships, work, and parenting. It is an invitation to be courageous; to show up and let ourselves be seen, even when there are no guarantees. This is vulnerability. This is daring greatly.

A Kind of Mirraculas Paradise Book Description :

“Compelling…A bracing work of art and a loving tribute” (Los Angeles Times), this propulsive, stunning book illuminates the experience of living with schizophrenia like never before. Sandra Allen did not know their uncle Bob very well. As a child, Sandy had been told Bob was “crazy,” that he had spent time in mental hospitals while growing up in Berkeley in the 60s and 70s. But Bob had lived a hermetic life in a remote part of California for longer than Sandy had been alive, and what little Sandy knew of him came from rare family reunions or odd, infrequent phone calls. Then in 2009 Bob mailed Sandy his autobiography. Typewritten in all caps, a stream of error-riddled sentences more than sixty, single-spaced pages, the often-incomprehensible manuscript proclaimed to be a “true story” about being “labeled a psychotic paranoid schizophrenic,” and arrived with a plea to help him get his story out to the world. “Searing” (O, The Oprah Magazine), “enthralling” (Star-Tribune, Minneapolis), and “a marvel” (Esquire), A Kind of Mirraculas Paradise shows how Sandy translated Bob’s autobiography, artfully creating a gripping coming-of-age story while sticking faithfully to the facts as he shared them. Sandy also shares background information about their family, the culturally explosive time and place of their uncle’s formative years, and the vitally important questions surrounding schizophrenia and mental healthcare in America more broadly. The result is a heartbreaking and sometimes hilarious portrait of a young man striving for stability in his life as well as his mind, and an utterly unique lens into an experience that, to most people, remains unimaginable. “Thrilling…Gorgeous…a watershed in empathetic adaptation of ‘outsider’ autobiography” (The New Republic), A Kind of Mirraculas Paradise is a dazzlingly, daringly written book that’s poised to change conversation about schizophrenia and mental illness generally.

Quicklet on TED Talks Chimamanda Adichie The danger of a single story CliffNotes like Summary Book Description :

ABOUT THE BOOK At first glance, it would not seem that I, someone who was born in the United States and has never been to Africa, would have anything in common with a woman from Nigeria. My exposure to Nigeria is so limited that I am largely unable to distinguish it from the rest of the continent, as if there is a singular African culture and experience. Like many Americans, what I know of Africa largely comes from the news media. This means that when I think of Africa, I usually think of wars, refugee camps, abject poverty, diseases, and corruption. With the exception of having beautiful wildlife and landscape, Africa to me simply represented a place of general misery. This is the result of being exposed to only a single story. As Nigerian writer Chimamanda Adichie points out in her TED talk, “The danger of a single story,” there is never a single story. Her own life is a testament to the fact that Africa is not just what we see on the news. MEET THE AUTHOR Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Karen Lac has been writing since 1999. Her articles have appeared in print in “The Occidental Weekly.” Her writing reflects her broad interests. She writes travel, entertainment, political commentary, health, nutrition, food, education, career, and legal articles for numerous websites. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and a Bachelor of Arts in politics, both from Occidental College. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Nigerian writer Chimamanda Adichie uses her personal life and experiences to illustrate the danger of reducing other people and cultures to a single story rather than recognizing that we all have overlapping, multiple stories. She begins her talk by discussing her childhood in Nigeria, moves on to her experience as an African woman in the U.S., and then discusses the Nigerian experience today. As a child growing up in a university campus in eastern Nigeria, Adichie loved reading and writing. When she began writing at the age of seven, she wrote the k

Quicklet on TED Talks Dan Pink on the surprising science of motivation CliffNotes like Summary Book Description :

ABOUT THE BOOK When it comes to what motivates us at work, the conventional wisdom is money. It’s long been established that if you want to motivate someone to do a better job, you pay them well and provide financial incentives to do an even better job. In companies throughout the United States and much the world, employees eagerly anticipate the day when they hear from their boss whether they’ll be getting a bonus or pay raise. But is money all that motivates us? Thinking on my own situation, there have been plenty of times when I was well compensated for a job but still didn’t perform as well as I should have. There have also been times when I did everything that I could and put in a lot of time on jobs with lower pay. If you were to ask around your own family, friends, and colleagues, I suspect that you’ll find they’ve experienced this as well. This goes against everything that we’ve been told about motivation. The more I get paid, the better my job performance is supposed to be. This belief that money is the biggest driver of performance is so accepted that to suggest otherwise would almost be un-American. MEET THE AUTHOR Abdul Montaqim is a journalist, based in London, and has been working in the media since 1989. Among the more well known titles he has written for are The Guardian newspaper, Time Out magazine and the International Business Times website. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Dan Pink was supposed to be a lawyer after graduating from Yale Law School. Instead, he became a writer. This change in career trajectory, rejecting a relatively stable, well-paid and prestigious job path to pursue a career in a notoriously unstable field, no doubt led him to think deeply about careers and what really motivates people. He is the author of four books. His first book, Free Agent Nation: The Future of Working for Yourself, was a Washington Post bestseller and became an indispensable book for those wanting to understand employee-management relations. His second bo
