Publisher's Summary

Some stories are too sensitive, painful or potentially damaging to share publicly - unless they can be shared anonymously. TED and Audible present, Sincerely, X, featuring speakers whose ideas deserve to be heard but whose identities must remain hidden. From lifesaving rituals to the unexpected gift of a prison sentence to the consequence of physician burnout; you won’t know the storyteller’s name, but their story may change you forever.

I loved it.

Once I got around to trying this series, I just ripped through it. All the stories are inspiring and alter my perspective and opinions. In fact because of one person's story on her panic attack in a optical shop, I jumped on an opportunity to be trained in mental health first aide when the chance arose unexpectedly. I learned so much by listening to the stories of these anonymous people. I really hope that Ted will continue to reach out to people like them and help share their stories though platforms such as this.
Thank you

Great Book

Really enjoyed the listen, hoping for a 2nd edition. There is a minimum of 15 words required.

Just Listen...

I didn't know what to expect listening to these, but I was thoroughly surprised. I enjoyed listening to every single one of these, and could relate to some more than others. I only have a couple left to listen to, and I'm extremely upset that there aren't anymore to download. Worth my time and listen.

Wonderfully Enlightening

As a person who thinks they’re pretty adept at viewing other perspectives I found this series riveting and wildly entertaining! I found each talk to be insightful, thoughtful and heartfelt. My favorite talk was from the inner city AP English teacher. I have never thought about how children growing up in urban poverty might act out because I’m so far removed from the environment. After hearing the talk I couldn’t imagine how frustrating it must be for the children and teachers, I’m so grateful we have people like the speaker in the world to help these kids and as a mom of 5, I took to heart what was said and will apply it to my own children and our lives. I hope there will be more talks soon, I can’t get enough!

She reveals nothing about how depression feels. <br /><br />

She suffers from sadness not depression. Depression is not maliable as she asserts. Nothing can move you emotionally when you are depressed. You have no control over your emotions. What she asserts is dangerous. Depression allows you to take pleasure in nothing.

What an eye opener!

I love the idea that we get to hear stories the no one would want to share on a TED talk. There are things in life that are just to personal, embarrassing or scary to get up in front of a stage and talk about. These are the story of Sincerely, X!

Personal and honest

The stories are raw and personal and inspiring. But the sound editing (effects, background music etc) makes it less sincere and cheapen the whole experience.

Burnout

I think this speaker was awfully hard on herself. I am not so convinced she could have talked this patient into staying. A medical provider can only do so much.

Episode 7

I have really enjoyed the first 6 episodes and understand why they were told anonymously. But I don’t see Episode 7 as a fit. It was a nice presentation perfect for the TED stage. I am also a female executive that had similar experiences in the 80’s and 90’s and I take every opportunity to share my stories, experiences and reflections with as many people as possible. Courageous leadership is rare but critical to change. Speak up, own your truth.
