“The success of TEDTalks has demonstrated that millions of people around the world are hungry to absorb new ideas,” said TED curator Chris Anderson. “But not everyone has the time to go out and read an entire book on an interesting subject. TEDBooks fill that gap. Their shorter format allows someone to see an idea fleshed out in a satisfying way — without having to set aside a week of reading time.”
They are releasing the first three titles as Amazon Singles:
- The Happiness Manifesto: How Nations and People Can Nurture Well-Being by Nic Marks
- Beware Dangerism: Why We Worry About the Wrong Things, and What It’s Doing to Our Kids by Gever Tulley
- Homo Evolutis: Please Meet the Next Human Species by Juan Enriquez and Steve Gullans
TED + books = Better TED and read.
