Xem TED là một chuyện, đọc script của TED là một chuyện khác. *rùng mình*

Sách viết về những bí quyết diễn thuyết được tác giả rút ra sau khi mổ xẻ nghiên cứu các bài nói của TED. Có nhiều đoạn lạ, có nhiều ý lặp lại. Nhưng nhìn chung thì vẫn có tính áp dụng.

Ngẫm lại vẫn tiếc cái lần không dự được TEDx ở HN hè vừa rồi :'(

“No discussion of logic is complete without a refresher course in the difference between inductive and deductive reasoning. By its strictest definition, inductive reasoning proves a general principle—your idea worth spreading—by highlighting a group of specific events, trends, or observations. In contrast, deductive reasoning builds up to a specific principle—again, your idea worth spreading—through a chain of increasingly narrow statements.” 0 likes
“Because I have an insatiable need to share an idea worth spreading even if it touches the heart and mind of just one person in the audience.” 0 likes
