The Book of Questionsby Gregory Stock
Synopses & Reviews
A New York Times bestseller with over 2.5 million copies in print, THE BOOK OF QUESTIONS poses over 300 questions that invite people to explore the most fascinating of subjects: themselves. These questions are as intriguing as our very lives because they are about our lives-our fundamental values and beliefs, our dreams and nightmares about sex, money, love, power.
Some of the questions thrust you into a value-testing hypothetical situation (Would you accept 20 years of extraordinary happiness and fulfillment if it meant you would die at the end of the period?), some ask you to delve into your past (When is the last time you stole anything?) and help you find out if you've changed (Would you now return it if you could?), and others reveal your basic nature by examining your behavior (When you are given a compliment do you usually acknowledge it or suggest that you really do not deserve it?). Whether used as an avenue for personal growth, a tool for deepening relationships, or simply as an entertainment, The Book of Questions may be the only publication that challenges-and even changes-the way readers view the world, without offering a single opinion of its own.
Posing 265 questions, "The Book of Questions" is bound to provoke hours and hours of thought.
Collects more than 200 questions designed to provoke thought about basic values and beliefs.
Also available by the same Author - THE KIDS' BOOK OF QUESTIONS, a bestselling collection specially designed to challenge, provoke, and entertain young readers; THE BOOK OF QUESTIONS: BUSINESS, POLITICS, AND ETHICS, a compendium of 300 primary and follow-up questions that focus on commerce and politics; and THE BOOK OF QUESTIONS: LOVE &SEX, posing over 250 questions that allow you to explore the mysteries of love and sex-without dispelling the magic.
Ask your friends. Ask your parents. Ask someone you hardly know. The Book of Questions gives you permission to ask those things that are too bold, too embarrassing, or just too difficult to ask by yourself. You will find questions of integrity; of sex; of what you would do for money; even things too personal to talk about out loud.
Whether you use it as a tool for self discovery, or as a provocative way to stimulate conversation, this book constantly challenges attitudes, morals, beliefs-and it challenges you.
