Love them or hate them, TED Talks play a crucial role in curating vital ideas in culture of the present! Here are some of the best TED talks that challenge us to transform our imaginations, the ways that we think and talk about the world and ultimately the ways we live within it.
TED Talks also offer a superb opportunity for authors to present sharply a key idea from a new or forthcoming book, and therefore serve as brief and pointed introductions to these books.
We hope you enjoy these TED talks (some of which you may have seen before, but are well-worth re-watching!)

“A lyrical bridge between
past, present and future”
With his signature charm and searching insight, David Whyte meditates on the frontiers of the past, present and future, sharing two poems inspired by his niece’s hike along El Camino de Santiago de Compostela in Spain.
