Best TED Talks that will Transform Our Imaginations! [Videos]

Best TED Talks

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!)

Book: Chasing the Scream: The Opposite of Addiction is Connection

He started to wonder why we treat addicts the way we do — and if there might be a better way. As he shares in this deeply personal talk, his questions took him around the world, and unearthed some surprising and hopeful ways of thinking about an age-old problem.
