Chris Anderson, seit mehr als einer Dekade der Kopf hinter den TED Talks, hat das offizielle Handbuch geschrieben: ›TED Talks: Die Kunst der öffentlichen Rede‹. Was als jährlich stattfindende Innovationskonferenz in Kalifornien begann, ist mittlerweile zu einem globalen Phänomen geworden: TED Talks werden in Städten auf der ganzen Welt gehalten und im Internet frei zugänglich gemacht. Den Themen sind keine Grenzen gesetzt, einziges Kriterium: die Ideen müssen begeistern und inspirieren – und das in 18 Minuten. Anderson verfügt über einen immensen Erfahrungsschatz und weiß, was eine gute Rede gut macht. Und genau das verrät er in diesem Buch: - Wie entwickle ich eine Idee und spinne einen roten Faden? - Wie bereite ich mich vor: Schreibe ich ein Skript oder spreche ich frei? - Was ziehe ich an? - Und wie gehe ich mit Lampenfieber um? »Wenn Sie vorhaben, auch nur einen Ton von sich zu geben, sollten Sie dieses Buch lesen.« Adam Grant »Mit den TED Talks ist die Kunst der Rhetorik für das 21. Jahrhundert neu erfunden worden. (...) Hinter dieser Revolution steckt Chris Anderson, der die Vision hat, dass gute Ideen die Welt verbessern können, und einen Leitfaden für die gute, überzeugende Rede entwickelt hat.« Steven Pinker

Author: Francesca Gino
The world’s best chef. An airline caption who brought his flight to safety in a daring water landing. A magician known for his sensational escape acts. A computer scientist who founded a world-renowned animation studio. What do all of these people have in common? They love their jobs, they break the rules, and the world is better off for it. They are rebels. From an early age, we are taught to be rule followers, and the pressure to fit in only increases as we age. But conformity comes at a steep price for our careers and personal lives. When we mindlessly accept rules and norms rather than questioning and constructively rebelling against them, we ultimately end up stuck and unfulfilled. As leaders, we are less effective and respected. As employees, we are more likely to be overlooked for top assignments and promotions. As partners and friends, we are checked out and unhappy. Francesca Gino has been studying rebels in life and in the workplace for more than 15 years. She has discovered that rebels—those who practice “positive deviance” at work-- are harder to manage, but they are good for the bottom line: their passion, drive, curiosity, and creativity raise the entire organization to a new level. And she has found that at home, rebels are more engaged partners, parents, and friends. Packed with strategies for embracing rebellion at work and in life, and illuminating case studies ranging from the world of fine dining to fast food chains to corporations such as Google and Pixar, Rebel Talent encourages all of us to rebel against what’s comfortable, so that we can thrive.

Leaders Eat Last
Author: Simon Sinek
The New York Times bestseller by the acclaimed, bestselling author of Start With Why and Together is Better. Now with an expanded chapter and appendix on leading millennials, based on Simon Sinek's viral video "Millenials in the workplace" (150+ million views). Imagine a world where almost everyone wakes up inspired to go to work, feels trusted and valued during the day, then returns home feeling fulfilled. This is not a crazy, idealized notion. Today, in many successful organizations, great leaders create environments in which people naturally work together to do remarkable things. In his work with organizations around the world, Simon Sinek noticed that some teams trust each other so deeply that they would literally put their lives on the line for each other. Other teams, no matter what incentives are offered, are doomed to infighting, fragmentation and failure. Why? The answer became clear during a conversation with a Marine Corps general. "Officers eat last," he said. Sinek watched as the most junior Marines ate first while the most senior Marines took their place at the back of the line. What's symbolic in the chow hall is deadly serious on the battlefield: Great leaders sacrifice their own comfort--even their own survival--for the good of those in their care. Too many workplaces are driven by cynicism, paranoia, and self-interest. But the best ones foster trust and cooperation because their leaders build what Sinek calls a "Circle of Safety" that separates the security inside the team from the challenges outside. Sinek illustrates his ideas with fascinating true stories that range from the military to big business, from government to investment banking.

Art and Revolution
Author: Gerald Raunig
A philosopher and art theorist extends the poststructuralist theory of revolution to the nexus of art and activism.
Nora Berning grasps the narrative potential of journalistic reportages via a set of narratological categories. Spurred by an interdisciplinary framework, she builds on transgeneric narratological research and shows that journalistic reportages can be described, analyzed, and charted with categories that originate in structuralist narratology. The author spells out minimal criteria for particular types of reportages, and challenges the argument that journalism and literature have distinct, non-overlapping communicative goals. By showing that the reportage is a hybrid text type that seeks to inform, educate, and entertain, this study advances a re-conceptualization of journalism and literature as two fields with permeable borders.

The study of media language is increasingly important both for media studies and for discourse analysis and sociolinguistics. In Media Discourse, Norman Fairclough applies the "critical discourse analysis" framework he developed in Language and Power and Discourse and Social Life to media language. Drawing on examples from TV, radio, and newspapers, he focuses on changing practices of media discourse in relation to wider processes of social and cultural change, particularly the tensions between public and private in the media and the tensions between information and entertainment.
