Summary

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.

Communications coach and best-selling 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 communications to get their cutting-edge insights and to reveal the 9 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 21st century, and Carmine Gallo's Talk Like TED gives listeners 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.

Great tips and advice

Content is very helpful, and Carmine Gallo's delivery is pretty good. I could've lived without the slightly stressful Australian accent in the penultimate chapter, but overall all performances were good and listenable.

Looking forward to giving my next presentation

What did you like most about Talk Like TED?

Straight forward and easy to follow. All of the stories weaved into each other instead of a list of bullet points and instructions.
Also liked the fact that I have already seen many of the Ted talks mentioned so I could visualise the performance

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Not heard any others but his voice and delivery was good

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, It has taken me over a month but I managed to take things from each of my sittings listening to it

Any additional comments?

I am looking forward to putting some of these tips into action.

Very little substance

Author shares nine elements of good presentations, e.g. being visual, keeping it short, telling stories. He then spends a book full of text to try and explain why all that is important. Almost no information on how to actually do it, almost no practical advice.
The most useful part was references to very good Ted talks. I then looked those up on TED.com and watched them to learn something.
