Book Lists

6 Business, Philanthropy, and Design Books by This Year’s TEDGlobal Speakers

This year’s TEDGlobal conference takes place in Rio de Janeiro from October 6-10. The theme is “South!” which marks the first official TED conference held in South America. The conference will “Focus on themes emerging around the world, this conference will take a bold look at the ideas flowing from the Global South, discussing innovation as well as social and political issues, art as well as education, resources as well as technology.”

The TED blog recently posted a list of books by authors who will be speaking in Rio. The authors come from a number of disciplines. I picked selections from Business, Philanthropy, and Design, but I encourage readers to see the full list here.
