Talk Like TED: The 9 Public Speaking Secrets of the World's Top Minds

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Carmine Gallo

Narrated By: Carmine Gallo

Publisher: Macmillan Audio

Date: March 2014

Duration: 7 hours 44 minutes


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.

Public speaking coach and bestselling 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 and communications to get their cutting-edge insights and to reveal the nine 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 twenty first century, and Gallo gives readers 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 book for anyone who want to spread his ideas.

  • Dasarathy Raghunathan

    It's a good, useful book. I enjoyed it. To me, the chapter on Storytelling was perhaps the most powerful insight and kept me most engaged. This was my first ever full audio book. The only thing I wish the book had included, is a summary of the nine ideas at the end. Being an audio book, there is no TOC or summary or even the ability to know when the reader/narrater is transitioning from one chapter to another, so that's one downside I saw.
