App DescriptionTED Books are short original electronic books produced every two weeks by TED Conferences. Like the best TED Talks, they're personal and provocative, and designed to spread great ideas. TED Books are typically under 20,000 words — long enough to unleash a powerful narrative, but short enough to be read in a single sitting.
The success of TED Talks has demonstrated that millions of people around the world are hungry to absorb new thoughts and perspectives. With more demands than ever on people's time, we think many will welcome the chance to absorb a TED Book when a spare hour becomes available.
The TED Books app allows us to embed audio, video, and social features into each book, broadening the depth and detail of each work. These additional multimedia features suit the wide-ranging creative palette of our contributors, many of who use photography, audio, and video in addition to the printed word to fully express their ideas.
TED Books can be purchased individually, or readers can subscribe and automatically receive a new ebook every two weeks. A one-month subscription to TED Books is just $4.99. Every two weeks, you'll receive notification of a new book, which you can download instantly. In addition, active subscribers can instantly download all previously released TED Books. Subscription automatically renews until canceled. Individual books are available for $2.99 to non-subscribers.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Edinburgh in the summer — TED includes the award-winning TED Talks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual $1 million TED Prize. On TED.com, we make the best talks and performances from TED and partners available to the world, free. More than 1,000 TED Talks are available, with more added every day. All of the talks are subtitled in English, and many are subtitled in various languages.
