TED Talks: The official TED guide to public speaking

7 out of 10.  Great book, easy to read and great advice.  It’s written in a way which felt like the author was giving your advice before giving a TED talk.  It’s not ground breaking advice but it changed the way I thought about creating presentations and blog posts

  • Create a powerful, intriguing start to your talk, capture the audiences attention from the start
  • Finish strongly, this is what most people will remember
  • Focus on making the talk interesting
  • Use interesting pictures and few words
  • Practice your talk alot

Paisley: Smile On Me And Guide My Hand

6 out of 10.  Good read but got a bit boring when the author kept writing the team sheet and going through too many individual matches.

An interesting read for Liverpool fans.  I am interesting in the dynamics of successful teams and how managers lead them and create a great team spirit.

Bob Paisley was one of the most successful managers of all time, winning 2.1 trophies a season.  Great leaders make things simple.
