Gr 6-9–Anderson, the curator of TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design), and co-writer Oberweger provide an accessible guidebook to prepare teens for public speaking. This concise yet comprehensive book is filled with tips, tricks, and constructive guidelines. Brief, organized chapters offer very specific ideas and suggestions. A variety of famous writers and presenters, including those who have taken the TED stage, are quoted and referenced throughout the text. Although some of the featured people may not be familiar to all readers, their words and advice are useful and fascinating. This readable and informative work contains many elements that could be useful beyond a TED Talk.
VERDICT Recommended for general purchase. A quick read and helpful reference source for anyone planning to conduct a public presentation.
