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!)

“Want to Be Happy? Be Grateful”
The one thing all humans have in common is that each of us wants to be happy, says Brother David Steindl-Rast, a monk and interfaith scholar. And happiness, he suggests, is born from gratitude. An inspiring lesson in slowing down, looking where you’re going, and above all, being grateful.
