A couple years back, I started keeping track of the reading I’d been doing for enjoyment. And now I’ve realized that, outside of blogs, I haven’t been reading too much technical or professional development content. So to make up for that, I’m going to start a list of the technical and professional development books that I read (or listen to). Hopefully, that will get me to get through a few new titles this year.
- How to Deliver a TED Talk - (audio book) This book is excellent. It has a lot of the same advice that I’ve been reading in The Exceptional Presenter, but it focuses on research that the author did on TED Talk presentations. The main items I got from this book were the discussions on connecting with the audience and transitioning between sections. I’ll be taking a lot of this to heart and hopefully people will start to find my presentations even more engaging.
