To get the best answer-in business, in life-you have to ask the best possible question. Innovation expert Warren Berger shows that ability is both an art and a science. It may be the most underappreciated tool at our disposal, one we learn to use well in infancy-and then abandon as we grow older. Critical to learning, innovation, success, even to happiness-yet often discouraged in our schools and workplaces-it can unlock new business opportunities and reinvent industries, spark creative insights at many levels, and provide a transformative new outlook on life. It is the ability to question-and to do so deeply, imaginatively, and “beautifully.” In this fascinating exploration of the surprising power of questioning, innovation expert Warren Berger reveals that powerhouse businesses like Google, Nike, and Netflix, as well as hot Silicon Valley startups like Pandora and Airbnb, are fueled by the ability to ask fundamental, game-changing questions. But Berger also shares human stories of people using questioning to solve everyday problems-from “How can I adapt my career in a time of constant change?” to “How can I step back from the daily rush and figure out what really makes me happy?” By showing how to approach questioning with an open, curious mind and a willingness to work through a series of “Why,” “What if,” and “How” queries, Berger offers an inspiring framework of how we can all arrive at better solutions, fresh possibilities, and greater success in business and life.

Groundbreaking advice from one of the nation's foremost executive coaches to help you overcome obstacles in your life, find your unique purpose, and achieve more. When faced with adversity, a major decision, or simply the challenges of daily existence, whether it is a difficult boss, a child who is hard to control, or a marriage or career that appears to be stuck, most of us have habitual knee-jerk reactions that hold us back. We find ourselves asking, Why am I working so hard but don't seem to be getting anywhere? Why do I keep fighting the same battles? When did I lose passion for what I do? Everyone has those questions, and in this book, Robb Hiller unveils the coaching that he has given Fortune 500 executives to answer these same questions. His counsel is encapsulated in a three-fold principle: ask, activate, and advocate. Robb is passionate about teaching these principles because they helped him face the biggest challenge of his life: a devastating cancer diagnosis. In this book, you won't just discover these principles--you will learn from Robb how to practice them in your daily routines and unleash your passion and purpose, no matter what hurdle you currently face.

Regularly priced at $9.99. Read on your PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet or Kindle device Warren Berger explains in the introduction that he is a journalist and, therefore, asks questions for his profession. A few years before this book was published, he wrote a series of articles, which eventually became part of a book, on the art and science of questioning. He interviewed innovators of business, designers, inventors, and engineers, to learn how they overcame challenges and found success. He did not find a single reason for their various successes, but he did find that many of them were talented at asking questions. For example, Steve Jobs of Apple and Jeff Bezos of Amazon were known for constantly questioning everything. Google actually runs on questions. Yet few companies encourage questioning. There are no departments focused on questions, no policies for asking questions. Similarly, schools do not encourage questioning. Many teachers recognize that being able to formulate good questions is an important skill, but it is not one that is tested in your average school. Too often, companies and schools, and even nonprofits confronting global issues, tend to continue with their norm, continue the work they have been doing without questioning whether their current method is the most effective one. Why not stop to question, and why isn't questioning taught?

The phenomenon returns! Originally published in 1987, The Book of Questions, a New York Times bestseller, has been completely revised and updated to incorporate the myriad cultural shifts and hot-button issues of the past twenty-five years, making it current and even more appealing. This is a book for personal growth, a tool for deepening relationships, a lively conversation starter for the family dinner table, a fun way to pass the time in the car. It poses over 300 questions that invite people to explore the most fascinating of subjects: themselves and how they really feel about the world. The revised edition includes more than 100 all-new questions that delve into such topics as the disappearing border between man and machine—How would you react if you learned that a sad and beautiful poem that touched you deeply had been written by a computer? The challenges of being a parent—Would you completely rewrite your child’s college-application essays if it would help him get into a better school? The never-endingly interesting topic of sex—Would you be willing to give up sex for a year if you knew it would give you a much deeper sense of peace than you now have? And of course the meaning of it all—If you were handed an envelope with the date of your death inside, and you knew you could do nothing to alter your fate, would you look? The Book of Questions may be the only publication that challenges—and even changes—the way you view the world, without offering a single opinion of its own.

Do you sometimes find it difficult to engage your loved one with dementia? To help them stay calm in the midst of an emotional reaction? To find activities you can share with them that encourage peaceful interaction? This book can help. Thumbing through this picture book with your loved one is an activity that will capture their attention, engage their mind, and encourage them to relax. They'll feel a sense of delight and anticipation as they turn the pages to see what beautiful bridge is next. You'll find a lot of other picture books out there, mostly for kids. But it's demeaning for seniors to give them books meant for children. And adult photography books are usually large and heavy, and they often include long, frustrating paragraphs of text. At Sunny Street Books, we design books specifically for seniors with dementia. They're lightweight yet high-quality, adult in nature, with nothing to distract your loved one from their enjoyment of the photos themselves. Families, caregivers, and assisted living staff can share this book with the people they care for. It is also an excellent activity for seniors with Parkinson's disease or recovering from a stroke. Seniors with eyesight or strength challenges who find it difficult to hold a heavy book or read long paragraphs of text will also enjoy this book. FEATURES - Beautiful Content This book is filled with carefully-curated, full-color, high-resolution photos of beautiful bridges around the world. - No Text The only text included in the book is on the title and copyright page. - Manageable Size This is a 40-page, 6" x 9" softcover that's comfortable to hold and easy to tuck into a bag. - High Quality The quality of this book's cover and its interior design are indistinguishable from books created for other readers. Just because a book is simple and uncomplicated doesn't mean it has to be unattractive, unprofessional, or childish. - Discreet Packaging At no time is anything mentioned about Alzheimer's disease, dementia, or any other challenges the reader might be facing. This book can be given to your loved one without fear that they might feel embarrassed or offended. NOTES FOR CAREGIVERS - Sit beside your loved one in a quiet place that is free of distractions. - Allow them to hold the book if possible, and also turn the pages, which will enable them to become more engaged in the book. - Put a pillow in their lap to support the book as you thumb through it together. - Start by asking questions that are easy to answer. "Which bridge do you think is prettier? The red covered bridge or the one over the river?" Then move to more open-ended questions. - Leave this book in an accessible place to allow your loved one to pick it up on their own when you're not there.
