It's clear Donovan did his research and understands the nature of TED Talks, not simply public speaking.
The author, having reviewed hundreds of TED talks, illustrates his points by directing the listener to specific examples.
If you aspire to perform a TED or TEDx talk, this, of all the books I've read [there have been many] is the best in leading the way to the TED or TEDx stage. This book alone, is an idea worth spreading.
Never. The spirituality movement sells books, I'm sure. But, other than religious institutions, there's no room for spirituality in the workplace. The author, an academic, is clueless about the reasons business organizations exist or the reasons those organizations employ people.
He's another of those "the universe will provide" pontificators.
No. His very voice offends me despite I kept "giving it a chance."
The author's "spiritual journey" is reflected in his delivery. This book speaks with a trendy vocabulary and in "touchy feely" tones. The approach appeals to followers of that movement but won't help a real-world career.
It's disheartening to think I spent my money and time on this book. "Anti-career Guide," indeed.
I'd recommend this book to demonstrate how little we learn in college and how much we're dependent on ourselves to innovate and think.
It was a dull read but could have been a performance.
I felt captivated by the book. I've based a presentation to college students on what I learned.
Don't buy it. Sorry I did. The "interviewee's" information is dated and even the interviewer, by her tone of voice, signals skepticism about this audio book's content.
I wouldn't have published it. Any of it.
We're beginning to see the impact of the new publishing model. Perhaps anyone can be a publisher, but not everyone will publish credible content.
