Talk Like TED: The 9 Public-Speaking Secrets of the World's Top Minds | Carmine Gallo
14 posts | 16 read | 1 reading | 6 to read
TED talks have redefined the elements of a successful presentation and become the gold standard for public speaking around the world. TED and associated Tedx conferences are held in more than 130 countries and are being viewed at a rate of 1.5 million times a day. These are presentations that set the world on fire, and the techniques that top TED speakers use are the same ones that will make any presentation more dynamic, fire up any team, and give anyone the confidence to overcome their fear of public speaking. Public speaking coach and bestselling author of The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs Carmine Gallo has broken down the top TED talks and interviewed the most popular TED presenters as well as the top researchers in the fields of psychology and communications to get their cutting-edge insights and to reveal the nine secrets of all successful TED presentations. From "Unleashing the Master Within" and "Delivering Jaw Dropping Moments" to "Sticking to the 18-minute Rule," Gallo provides a step-by-step method that makes it possible for anyone to create, design, and deliver a TED-style presentation that is engaging, persuasive, and memorable. Ideas are the true currency of the twenty first century, and Gallo gives readers a way to create presentations around the ideas that matter most to them, presentations that will energize their audiences to spread those ideas, launch new initiatives, and reach their highest goals.

Was preparing for an important presentation at work and noticed this book in my library (in an audiobook format). Halfway through the recording I bought myself a hard copy! It isn't perfect (as in -- dont think that you'll be ready to do a TED Talk immediately after just reading it), but it has really great pointers, suggestions and examples, and helps develop an interesting approach to presentations of all levels.

This book offered insight into developing your presentation, staying concise, and staying in your lane. I recommend this to anyone looking to improve their presentations and public speaking skills.

The pointers were great, but there was so much fluff to the points I had to skip over parts as it was redundant.

I love watching Ted Talks. Often I am blown away by how dynamic, energizing and ingenious some folks are. How bold, daring and clever? How easy public speaking looks for some folks? This book gave insight. It‘s not easy. It‘s a practiced skill that requires hard work, determination and courage. I learned a lot, but probably what other folks already know.
Recommended for appreciation of the task of touching a heart in an 18-minute speech.

STILL in bed sick with a cold. I should be celebrating all this reading time I can now do, but this is day five. I am determined to move around today, maybe to breathe some fresh air in another room. Decided to start this, because I‘ve been watching TED Talks while lying in bed. I‘m always amazed at how brilliant the presentations are so this should give insight. Hoping all of you are well.

Nute @Lacythebookworm @Dragon @JacqMac @MicheleinPhilly @eyelit So much love for you all. Every well wish, every kind thought, every virtual hug, every sweet word is priceless. I have tucked them all into the warm places of my heart and I believe that they are making me feel better. It is so cool how we can reach out and touch one another like family. Thanks. 2y
BellaBookNook I always secretly believe when I‘m sick I‘ll get more reading time but it never happens.😏 Hope you are feeling better. (edited) 2y
DivineDiana Sending get well wishes! 2y
Nute @BellaBookNook @DivineDiana Thanks for the well-wishes. I remember thinking a day in bed equals a day of reading. This ill encounter proved that as an untruth.😞 Reading can only take place after an 8-hour shift at work, on the weekend or while on vacation. So no more getting excited about colds that demand bed rest because col-related bed rest does not mean ‘yay...reading time!‘ 2y
BellaBookNook @Nute You are absolutely right. When we get sick our prime focus is healing and sometimes only rest helps the healing. Hope you feel better soon. 2y

Had a lot of stories and explanation which drilled down old concepts.
