TED Talks The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking by Chris Anderson 1

Review From User :

I preordered this book and read it in two sittings, because it has the most compelling advice for any kind of public speaking. The core of the book is based around how public speaking is nothing but an idea that you want to transfer to your audience's minds - that insight alone is worth the time you spend reading and learning from this book. Most advice on public speaking give more weight to body language, posture and charisma, whereas this book rightly emphasizes on the words you speak, and the value you provide to the audience. Less style, more substance. Also I am never going to be able to shake off the metaphor introduced in the book - that public speaking is simply storytelling to people sitting around a campfire :)

Definitely going to revisit this book often for speaking tips. There is also a handy playlist online of all the best TED speeches referenced in the book: http://www.ted.com/tedtalksbook/playlist
