There are certainly more than 9 secrets, indeed, there are dozens of points that are made and their organization is not quite orderly. The infernal overuse of "passion" is very irritating. The ridiculous idealizing of the "rule of threes" is only done to a greater extent by Hegel. The continued emphasis on story is odd: he keeps citing recent psychological research, but he neglects to mention the psychological bias of narrative (indeed, he wants the users (readers and listeners) to exploit this bias; but, if they are so clever that they would give a TED talk, why are they not so clever to be on guard against succumbing to it? Or have the intellectual integrity of avoiding duping others with it?). Very well and clearly read by the author.

Valuable ideas and concepts- not just for public speaking

After the umpteenth mention of the word "passion" in the first chapter alone, I was ready to call it quits. An excess of clichéd biz-speak and one too many iWorshipful mentions of Steve Jobs are examples of how Talk Like TED behaves more like an infomercial for TED than an actual how-to guide for better presentations.

The subject matter is very good and very useful. The presentation and layout of the subject matter is drawn out to the point you get lost on what's being discussed. That said, I'm going to turn this in soon and look for the book version in order to make my focus succinct.
