I shared my love of the TED conferences a few months back. They, in general, are informing entertaining and thought-provoking. As a book lover I was intrigued by the fact that an in-person conference attendee (at over $7000) also is part of the TED book club described in this snippet from their web site:
TED Book Club: Enrollment in the TED Book Club, which
sends inspired 2-3 book selections four times a year via Amazon Kindle
software/hardware or physical books. While we send 12-15 titles per
year, the Kindle option includes additional bonus selections (at least
10) available only electronically. Kindle software reader available for
iPad, Mac, PC, and iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows 7 smartphones
in addition to Kindle itself.
Since attending the conference is currently out of my reach, I really wanted to know what books all these movers and shakers were reading. (I know that being a mover and shaker is considered a good quality, even though it sounds a little odd).
Anyway, I searched a lot for the list of books, but could not find them anywhere, and what I found most peculiar is that few people talk about the list of books on-line.
Well, in yet another flurry of Google effort I hit pay-dirt with this web site.
