You’ve watched TED Talks, but have you read the new TED Books? [UPDATED]

This week, the folks over at TED just released a new initiative known as TED Books.  Available through apps for iPad, Kindle and Nook, TED Books are meant to be the eTextbook complement to the innovative series of TED talks we have all grown to love.  Following the TED tradition of brevity, they are all meant to be consumed in about an hour.  Their content also follows the TED tradition of unique, cutting edge and innovative content.
