TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design and covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Speakers often recommend books and we have selected five of our favourites.
