This boxed set includes insights and advice on a wide range of topics from 300 prominent TED Conference speakers.
Online TED Talks have provided inspiration to a worldwide audience since 2006, focusing not only on their original subjects of technology, entertainment, and design but also on cultural, social, and political issues. In this boxed set of three Great TED Talks titles—Creativity, Innovation, and Leadership—readers are presented with the ideas of 300 TED Conference speakers, condensed into short essays filled with practical advice that can be incorporated into everyday life. A journal with guided prompts will help readers turn the words of the speakers into writing exercises suited to their personal needs. Also included are URLs directing readers to the TED website so they can watch the original videos in their entirety.
