So when we saw this list of 50 books recommended by TED speakers in 2017 we knew resistance was futile.
In case you’re not familiar with the concept, TED (which stands for Technology, Education and Design) is a nonprofit movement dedicated to spreading ideas through conferences, talks and events both live and streamed through its wildly popular YouTube channel, which has a not-so-casual seven million subscribers.
