Picked this up with hopes to improve my speaking skills and reduce my nervousness. What I got was an insightful and easy to implement guide. Better yet, it was entertaining and easy to read, unlike alot of dry and data driven self help books out there. Already tried some points in my first attempt and found I was excited to speak rather than dreading it!
Added bonus: a list of must-see TED talks.

If you are in a hurry read pages 6 to 11. The 3 points are: (1) believe in what you are saying, be emotional (2) be novel or original in your approach and (3) make the talk memorable in various ways. These points are illustrated by 149 notes that leads to Internet addresses of TED videos, etc. And for the older folks out there, the author says Dale Carnegie's The Art of Public Speaking "remains the foundation of effective communication to this day." (page 7) This TED book builds on that.

Highly recommended.

If "public speaking" is a challenge and you wish to get better, this is a very good instructional book.

Easy, fun.

This book has got me hooked on TED.com. Amazing insights and observations not only about public speaking but overall communication skills.
