A Tale of Two Brains

One of my lifelong quests is to learn to give presentations that don't suck.

One tactic in this quest is to learn from people who give exceptional talks. A great source for awesome presentations is the TED conference, which hosts the best speakers in the world and shares them on the web.

In the following TED video, neuroscientist Jill Bolte Taylor gives a play by play account of her own stroke. There's a lot to learn here. Her insights from this devastating event are quite compelling. Equally compelling are the techniques she uses to tell this gripping tale of two brains.
