The 2nd Most Popular TED Talk: "Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are"

Amy Cuddy Takes a Stand.  (The New York Times, 9/19/2014)

4,581,897 views as of today.
Her rousing presentation in 2012 at TED Global on what she calls “power poses” is among the most viewed TED Talks of all time (it is No. 2; Sir Ken Robinson’s “How Schools Kill Creativity” is No. 1 -- 6,840,521 views). In its wake, Ms. Cuddy, 42, has attracted lucrative speaking invitations from around the world, a contract from Little, Brown & Co. for a book to be published next year, and an eclectic army of posture-conscious followers.
