New York Times Bestseller

"Catnip for all the TED fans out there." --Publishers Weekly

"The most insightful book ever written on public speaking . . . a must-read." --Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times best-selling author of Give and Take and Originals

Since taking over TED in 2001, Chris Anderson has shown how carefully crafted talks can be the key to unlocking empathy, spreading knowledge, and promoting a shared dream. Done right, a talk can electrify a room and transform an audience's worldview; it can be more powerful than anything in written form.

This "invaluable guide" (Publishers Weekly) explains how the miracle of powerful public speaking is achieved, and equips you to give it your best shot. There is no set formula, but there are tools that can empower any speaker.
Chris Anderson has worked with all the TED speakers who have inspired us the most, and here he shares insights from such favorites as Sir Ken Robinson, Salman Khan, Monica Lewinsky and more -- everything from how to craft your talk's content to how you can be most effective on stage. This is a must-read for anyone who is ready to create impact with their ideas.

What is the difference between a god and a powerful alien? Can an android have a soul, or be considered a person with rights? Can we imagine biblical stories being retold in the distant future on planets far from Earth? Whether your interest is in Christianity in the future, or the Jedi in the present--and whether your interest in the Jedi is focused on real-world adherents or the fictional religion depicted on the silver screen--this book will help you explore the intersection between theology and science fiction across a range of authors and stories, topics and questions. Throughout this volume, James McGrath probes how science fiction explores theological themes, and vice versa, making the case (in conversation with some of your favorite stories, TV shows, and movies) that the answers to humanity's biggest questions are best sought by science fiction and theology together as a collaborative effort. ""Dr. McGrath's love of theology and science fiction is contagious, shining through on every page. The result is an impressive book that is both thought-provoking and easily accessible, whether the reader is an individual or a study group member, a serious sci-fi fan or a congregational leader."" --C. K. Robertson, Canon to the Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church; Editor of Religion as Entertainment ""I've always considered science fiction to be the quintessential literature of our species, because it is the only literature to fully address what most makes us human: our ability to engage the cosmos. Religion is another way of doing this, and James McGrath explores these intersections in a provocative and erudite book that not only calls on a variety of human religions, but science fiction on both page and screen."" --Paul Levinson, author of The Plot to Save Socrates ""Those of us who enjoy science fiction take its nature very seriously. And those of us who are excited by Christian faith take the Bible very seriously. There is therefore no better commentator to explore the relationship between theology and science fiction than James McGrath, a serious biblical scholar and science fiction fan who embodies the joy and excitement of the relationship in this accessible and insightful book."" --David Wilkinson, Principal of St. John's College, Durham University ""Refuting the dichotomies that have plagued so much writing on religion, theology, and science fiction, and refusing simply to press one in service of the other, James McGrath weaves a wonderfully nuanced tale of two of humankind's most important and influential ways of imagining our place in the universe--and the place of the universe in our imagination. Few interested in this relationship can afford to miss this book."" --Douglas E. Cowan, author of Sacred Space: The Quest for Transcendence in Science Fiction Film and Television James F. McGrath is Clarence L. Goodwin Chair in New Testament Language and Literature at Butler University in Indianapolis. He is the author of the science fiction short story ""Biblical Literalism in the New Jerusalem"" (2016), the editor of Religion and Science Fiction (2011), and the coeditor of Religion and Doctor Who: Time and Relative Dimensions in Faith (2013).

Cicero placed a high value on the importance of mastering the skill of rhetoric, which is the art of using language as a means to persuade. Such a skill was important especially in the practice of law and politics, of which he did both. In the "Treatise of Rhetorical Invention" Cicero outlines his theories on rhetoric in this early composition. In "Topics" we find an exposition of the tools that an orator may avail himself of in crafting a convincing argument. Cicero is thought of as one of the greatest orators of all time and it is due in no small part to his mastery of rhetoric. This collection, translated by C. D. Yonge, will give the reader great insight into the skill of rhetoric as it was thought of and practiced by an early master of the skill.

USA Culture Smart the Essential Guide to Customs & Culture Second Edition

Sale 20% off
Who can afford not to understand the USA? Many facets of American life have been embraced around the world, yet the sense of "just like in the movies" familiarity that first-time visitors often feel can be misleading. Underneath the gleaming smile of American popular culture lies a rich and complex society that brims with contrasts and contradictions. It is a culture of rugged individualism, of go-getters, of high-tech high achievers. At the same time it is a deeply religious country with a quiet devotion to church and charitable works. This updated new edition of Culture Smart! USA also reveals a society in transition. The USA responded to the 9/11 attacks by embarking on two overseas wars, while at home the subprime mortgage crisis rippled through the economy, bringing the first African-American president to power during the biggest recession since the 1920s. In an increasingly polarized political and cultural climate, and with an ever widening gap between the haves and the have-nots, the rise of the social media has given more Americans a voice, from the Tea Party on the right to the Occupy Wall Street movement on the left. As Americans wake up to a changing world where their global economic dominance is no longer assured, attitudes and behavior are being challenged and reassessed across the land. Culture Smart! USA takes you on a tour of the core influences and ideals that have shaped this great country and have driven the behavior and attitudes found on Main Street and in the workplace. It looks at Americans at work, at home, and at play, and provides the visitor with an up-to-date cultural "road map" of this dynamic, multifaceted society.
