Excerpt

Which sex do you think has it easier in our culture? Have you ever wished you were of the opposite sex?

Knowing you had a 50 percent chance of winning and would be paid 10 times the amount of your bet if you won, what fraction of what you now own would you be willing to wager?

Would you rather spend a month on vacation with your parents or put in overtime at your current job for four weeks without extra compensation?

"Review" by , "The best questions are the ones you can't Google. Here is a whole book of them."
"Review" by , "Capturing both future and present dilemmas, this deceptively simple book packs a real punch."
"Review" by , "In a good question is the thread of an answer. A good question is better than a brilliant answer. I personally focus on the word 'quest' in question, which is the essence of each interlocutory. Gregory Stock's book is a seductive and delightful journey about the essence of conversations which is the question."
"Review" by , "These questions can take you into critical examination of what you are doing in this life."
"Review" by , "Interesting questions! Some of the most bizarre ones may be everyday issues in our near future."
"Review" by , "Stock's knack for wording a question in just the right way to provoke lively discussion is on full display again in this terrific new book. It's fantastic!"
"Review" by , "These questions will get you thinking about some of the things we can go through a lifetime avoiding; they're deep questions, but then humans at our best and most real are deep people."
"Review" by , "Don't know what to do this weekend? Here is the answer: Pick up this book and drive your friends, loved ones, neighbors, and strangers crazy with smart, tough, interesting questions."
"Review" by , "The Book of Questions covers an enormous range of challenging issues with wit, insight, and brio."
"Review" by , "Your answers to these questions will help us decide what humans should be. Take your time."
"Review" by , "When the original Book of Questions was published, it provoked hours of conversation and engagement among me and my friends. The new book is even better and should provide hours and hours of entertainment and enlightenment."
"Review" by , "Provocative, surefire conversation starters. Watch out; some of them will have you questioning old and comfy assumptions."
"Review" by , "In a world endlessly in search of answers, Greg Stock reminds us that what really matters are the questions."
"Synopsis" by , 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.
