TED Talks To Kindle

The people behind the popular TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) Talks series now bring their signature "ideas worth spreading" to the written word. From their website: "Shorter than traditional books, TED Books run less than 20,000 words each - long enough to explain a powerful idea, but short enough to be read in a single sitting. Books are available on the Kindle and Kindle Reader apps, and cost $2.99 each." The first three titles in the series are The Happiness Manifesto: How Nations and People Can Nurture Well-Being by Nic Marks, Homo Evolutis: Please Meet the Next Human Species by Juan Enriquez and Steve Gullans, and Beware Dangerism! Why We Worry About the Wrong Things, and What It's Doing to Our Kids by Gever Tulley.
