From the bestselling author, media pioneer, and curator of TED Chris Anderson, INFECTIOUS GENEROSITY is an inspiring, revelatory book about the secret, urgent and world-changing potential of one of humankind’s defining but overlooked impulses: generosity.

The Ultimate Idea Worth Spreading
by Chris Anderson
Crown, January 2024

As head of TED for the past 20 years, Chris Anderson has had a ringside view of the world’s most significant thinkers sharing their boldest ideas across every imaginable discipline, and he’s noticed that generosity is the essential tool that connects everything. It may seem simple, but generosity has played a key role in building the tools, knowledge, and institutions that have allowed civilization to flourish.
In this profound and inspiring book, Anderson shows how the same technologies that have been a catalyst for negativity can be turned into an exponential force for good—to create chain reactions of generous behavior. Gifts of time, talent, connection, and kindness have always been part of what it is to be a good human. What’s different today, Anderson reveals, is the power each of us has—if we’d only stop to think about it—to catalyze world-changing, self-replicating impact in a domino effect of generosity. The people, companies, investors and organizations who understand this—who prioritize generosity, and give more to the world than they take from it—are the ones that will own the future and will be happier as a result.

Chris Anderson has been the curator of TED since 2001. His TED mantra—“ideas worth spreading”—continues to blossom on an international with more than one billion TED Talks viewed annually. He lives in New York City and London.

Imagine the perfect organizational system.
A system that told you exactly where to put every piece of information in your life – every document, file, note, agenda, outline, and bit of research – and exactly where to find it when you needed it. Such a system would need to be incredibly easy to set up, and even easier to maintain. After all, only the simplest, most effortless habits endure long term.
It would need to be both flexible, adapting to your needs in different seasons of your life, but also comprehensive, so you can use it in every one of the many places where you store information, such as your computer’s file system, a cloud storage platform (e.g., Dropbox or Google Drive), or a digital notetaking app. But most of all, the ideal organizational system would be one that leads directly to tangible benefits in your career and life. It would dramatically accelerate you toward completing the projects and achieving the goals that are most important to you.
In other words, the ultimate system for organizing your life is one that is actionable. Instead of putting more obstacles in your way, postponing the actions that will make a difference, it would pull those actions closer and make them easier to start and finish.
Developed by Tiago Forte after more than a decade of personal experimentation, teaching thousands of students, and coaching world-class professionals, THE PARA METHOD is a simple, comprehensive, yet extremely flexible system for organizing any type of digital information across any platform.

Tiago Forte is one of the world’s foremost experts on productivity and has taught thousands of people around the world how timeless principles and the latest technology can revolutionize their productivity, creativity, and personal effectiveness. He has worked with organizations such as Genentech, Toyota Motor Corporation, and the Inter-American Development Bank and appeared in a variety of publications, such as The New York Times, The Atlantic, and Harvard Business Review.

Science Based Tools for Everyday Life

We can’t always recover from extreme stress, fatigue, or depression by changing our mindset alone. The mind is just one part of the body, connected to everything else by the most complex and powerful technology in the universe; the nervous system. And recent scientific studies have revealed that we have much more control over the mind through physical inputs than previously thought. Just as the brain influences the body, the body can influence the brain. Dr. Huberman wants to show us that we can harness the power of the nervous system to control our minds. We can use it to calm ourselves when feeling stressed, focus when feeling distracted, relax when it’s time to go to bed, and become energized when it’s time to get up.
Using cutting edge research in the biology of mindset and grit, and real stories from the top athletes, scientists and executives, Dr. Huberman will illustrate the life-changing power of hundreds of science-based tools and protocols, from breathing to visual exercises to food choices. Because when we learn to tap into our nervous system, we can overcome trauma, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and other debilitating states of mind.
From the most trusted voice in popular science, PROTOCOLS will be the definitive guide to leveraging the latest science to improve our mental health, our physical health, and our performance.

Huberman is a McKnight Foundation and Pew Foundation Fellow and was awarded the Cogan Award in 2017, given to the scientist making the most significant discoveries in the study of vision. Work from the Huberman Laboratory at Stanford School of Medicine has been published in top journals including Nature, Science, and Cell and has been featured in TIME, BBC, Scientific American, Discover, and other top media outlets.
