Since taking over TED in 2001, Chris Anderson has shown how carefully crafted talks can be the key to unlocking empathy, spreading knowledge, and promoting a shared dream. Done right, a talk can electrify a room and transform an audience's worldview; it can be more powerful than anything in written form. This "invaluable guide" (Publishers Weekly) explains how the miracle of powerful public speaking is achieved, and equips you to give it your best shot. There is no set formula, but there are tools that can empower any speaker. Chris Anderson has worked with all the TED speakers who have inspired us the most, and here he shares insights from such favorites as Sir Ken Robinson, Salman Khan, Monica Lewinsky and more - everything from how to craft your talk's content to how you can be most effective on stage. This is a must-read for anyone who is ready to create impact with their ideas.

"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. He explains in accessible terms how a skillful speaker can bring an audience's attention and excitement into the same neurological space that the speaker and his ideas occupy. Colorful examples of common mistakes and best practices make his meta-message powerful: Public speaking is more important than ever, and the skills needed to be part of this renaissance can be learned.
