Master the one thing all great TED talks have in common!
What is the secret to delivering a great TED talk?
What is the magic ingredient that makes a TED talk captivating?
And more importantly, how can you use those secrets to make your presentations more powerful, dynamic, and engaging?
To try to answer these questions, I studied over 200 of the best TED talks. I broke each TED talk down in terms of structure, message, and delivery. Here's what I discovered: After studying over 200 TED talks, the one commonality among all the great TED talks is that they contain stories. Utilize advanced storytelling techniques to inject life into your presentations!
Essentially, the best speakers on the TED stage were the ones who had mastered the art of storytelling. They had mastered how to craft and present their stories in a way that allowed them to share their message with the world without seeming like they were lecturing their audience.
Discover the 23 storytelling secrets of the best TED talks! In this short, but powerful, guide you're going to learn how to use stories to make your presentations engaging and entertaining. Using case studies drawn from TED talks by Sir Ken Robinson, Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, Susan Cain, Leslie Morgan Steiner, Mike Rowe, and Malcom Gladwell, you'll learn how to craft stories that keep your audience mesmerized.

"Every speaker can put these ideas into practice immediately - and they should!" (Dr. Richard C. Harris, certified speaking coach)
"Superb communication advice" (Larry Nocella, author of The Katrina Contract: A Novel)
"bargain Book Bin content"
disappointing 99 cent book. I kept waiting to receive helpful content, however it was mediocre at best
"don't buy it."
the whole book like his last audiobook was him pretty much marketing himself and his website. Instead by Carmine Gallo is TED Talks book.
"Good for beginners"
If you are new to story telling this might help you out. It puts some very obvious things younger/beginners might not know how to put into words, into words. Easy to follow and short enough you can power through if his voice bores you. Over all not a bad listen.
"Exactly what I needed"
This was to the point and gave me a structure about going forward to doing a great talk.
"Excellent for creating introductions"
This book wil help you when deciding how to set up your presentation, and creating an emotional or intoxication introduction!
"Not that informative"
Tell a story, don't use introductory sentences yada yada yada.
Then a list of videos to see through the authors website and a chance to get on her email list.
Skip it and just watch amazing Ted talks.
"a few good story telling basics"
This lists some good basic storytellng techniques. The hype and advertising is annoying. Consider it a "lite" guide to story telling.
"Really good and short book"
This audiobook is very short and to the point, which is exactly how I like them. The author uses numerous specific examples.
"Too much self promo"
Some great points - skip to chapter two to get to the substance of the talk. A lot of sales promo and plugs especially @ end.
"don't buy this book"
This was a waste of time and money. I thought this book would help me improve my speaking skills or at the very least, give me a few ideas on how to improve them. it did neither. There was nothing in this book that I had not learned by watching the Ted Talk Videos myself. The only good thing I got from this book was a reference to another book by Susan Cain; Quiet, which was a really good book.
don't recall. It's been a some time since I listened to it and didn't really care to listen anymore.
