Author Jeremey Donovan knows TED. An experienced Toastmaster, he applies a deep understanding of the dynamics of public speaking to the format of the renowned TED presentations. He adopts a straightforward, everyman tone to remind readers that anyone – no matter how inexperienced – can address a TED audience successfully. Donovan’s advice makes a lot of sense in this easy-to-follow TED Talk template. Amusingly, he neither confirms nor denies that he ever spoke at a TED gathering. Rather, he writes that he “studied” many TED presentations to break down their structure, flow, strengths and weaknesses. getAbstract recommends the fruits of his avid study to anyone aspiring – or scheduled – to speak at a TED convocation, as well as to everyone who wants to organize and present material effectively.
In this summary, you will learn
- What TED is,
- How to prepare a TED presentation and
- How to deliver it.

Comment on this summary
4 years agoI started reading the book before my discovery of GetAbstract. The book was a little dry in some areas, and I felt some topics belaboring some of the points.
After reading the Abstract, it made perfect sense. I can always go back to the Chapter in the book if I need to.
Thank you for this great service!!!
