REVIEW: 'Talk Like TED' book 'heartily recommended'

Published: Wednesday, July 23, 2014 at 05:51 PM.

Delivering an effective presentation is a goal for everyone from students to CEOs.

Communication coach Carmine Gallo analyzes more than 500 TED Talks in his new book “Talk Like TED: The 9 Public-Speaking Secrets of the World’s Top Minds." It has tips on delivering emotional, novel and memorable speeches.

If you’ve never checked out TED Talks I heartily recommend them.

TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a global set of conferences under the slogan “Ideas Worth Spreading.” These inspiring talks address a wide range of topics within science and culture's research and practice.

Speakers have a maximum of 18 minutes to present their ideas in the most innovative, engaging ways they can, often through storytelling.

The book has been checked out at the Crestview Public Library, 1445 Commerce Drive, Crestview, but you can place a hold on it or request it through the Inter Library Loan program.

Call 682-4432 or visit the library website for details.
