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.
It helped improve my presentation skills by infusing confidence , ideas and methodologies.The anectodes and stories used were very inspiring and helped me overcome my fear of public speaking.
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.
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.
Great examples from TED talks and an engaging and motivating text. Highly recommended to any one who presents information in the public domain
