For anyone who has ever been inspired by a TED Talk . . . This is an insider´s guide to creating talks that are unforgettable. Since taking over TED in 2001, Chris Anderson has shown how carefully crafted short talks can be the key to unlocking empathy, stirring excitement, sharing knowledge, and promoting a shared dream.
