TED curator Chris Anderson (pictured, via) has inked a deal with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for Talk This Way! The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking.
Senior executive editor Rick Wolff handled this acquisition. This project will be the first in Wolff’s new line of business books.
Anderson gave this statement in the press release: “Many people have something important to say, but are terrified by public speaking. Yet the skills to deliver a compelling talk are teachable. Over the last 10 years, my team and I have had access to the preparation process of many of the world’s best speakers. It’s thrilling to have this opportunity to share what we’ve learned with a broader public, and I look forward to working with Rick and his colleagues at HMH.”
