can't argue with success. This book presents nine traits of the most successful speakers on the TED circuit. However, TED talk's application to less than one-of-a- kind speeches is not so clear. For example, practicing 200 times, use of a personal story, etc. might not be possible all the time.
2.0 out of 5 starsA poorly written summary of a well-written book
13 October 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
Very sorry to say that this is a very poorly written summary of a very well-written book. Errors abound, well beyond any reasonably acceptable maximum. I found some quite literally on every page, often multiple errors in grammar, spelling and vocabulary (or just plain typos) to the point of constant distraction. (The title of chapter 5 for instance is "Deliver Jay-Dropping Moments" and its first paragraph has multiple errors.) I got the impression that the writer isn't a native English speaker, and it certainly wasn't run by a professional editor before publication.
The content itself is alright, like reading someone's notes. It would be better to peruse the actual book and perhaps take notes or highlight passages, and then just read through your own notes/highlights.
I hope the publisher will take care to ensure quality in the future, and maybe even update this title.
