What if I asked you to spend just 20 minutes on this?

Watching Jill Bolte Taylor give this speech. It’s a profound 20 minutes. Really.

If you don’t have a broadband connection, right click on the video and select low bandwidth. Ignore the bit about How to Give A Speech I know why that’s the title for the post this links to, but it’s really something far more, well, I guess I’m back to profound.

If you watched it, what did you think?

    I’ve been recommending Jill Bolte Taylor’s book “My Stroke of Insight” to everyone I know. It’s the best book I’ve read all year!
    You can get the book for just $16.47 with free shipping from Amazon! Here is the Amazon link:

    I saw a Publisher’s Lunch announcement for the book just a week or two ago. I didn’t know it was out already. I’ll definitely look for it. Thanks for the head’s up!

    The New York Times Sunday Newspaper on May 25 had a great two page article on Jill Bolte Taylor and her book, “MY STROKE OF INSIGHT”. Her book is a must read and this NY Times article – called “A Superhighway to bliss” is worth checking out too.

    I read “My Stroke of Insight” in one sitting – I couldn’t put it down. I laughed. I cried. It was a fantastic book (I heard it’s a NYTimes Bestseller and I can see why!), but I also think it will be the start of a new, transformative Movement! No one wants to have a stroke as Jill Bolte Taylor did, but her experience can teach us all how to live better lives. Her TED.com speech was one of the most incredibly moving, stimulating, wonderful videos I’ve ever seen. Her Oprah Soul Series interviews were fascinating. They should make a movie of her life so everyone sees it. This is the Real Deal and gives me hope for humanity.
