Tough questions you were always afraid to ask... yourself.

A mirror of question for self-assessment. It could be much better with analysis and advices to add to this small book

Sticking with my love for simple, small, "pocket" books, I recently found a set of three that are definitely worth more than one read: Michael Krogerus & Roman Tschäppeler's The Decision Book, The Change Book, & The Question Book.

Each of these espouse 50 Models that make you ponder on the everyday aspects of life. My personal favourite among the three (and each of them is good!) is The Change Book, which vies to explain "how things happen".

Try it. I know you will enjoy it.

I bought this book mainly because I was interested in the authors' decision-making questions. The positive aspect of the book is that it makes you take the time to ask yourself things that you may take for granted or of which you may take little notice, such as "2 compliments that you often get" or "what have you struggled with in the past but learnt to live with".

But in the main, the questions relied too much on self-assessment and most of us are quite judges of our own and other peoples' chara

The one word that describes this book must be "brilliance". You discover so much about yourself while reading this book answering these questions. Obviously I haven't answered all of them yet, I've got too much fun with this book to already finish this, but I already wanted to do the review.

Reading this one is easy. It's writing the replies that's the interesting part.
But definitely a good try at asking those questions that we should ask ourselves, and ask anyone we truly want to know. Wld probably be interesting to see how the answers change over time.
Ultimately, asking the questions and the process of looking for the answers are greater than actually finding said answers.

O que nos faz falta?

O que dispensamos?

O que podemos optimizar?

Para encontrar as respostas certas à que formular as perguntas certas. Só assim é possível aguçar a consciência sobre nós mesmos e melhorar as nossas vidas!...

Nota:Para quem preferir , existe uma edição em português intitulada "O Livro das Perguntas"

once I got writing answering the Lists of Questions, there was no stopping me. First. day I reviewed the boo,,,,the next few I began my writings.

I enjoyed this book as it was as though I was journaling, which is where it I going!

NOTE: I won this book in a contest, that I don't remember entering which it was, from Regal Literary on March 10 2014

Buy a few copies. Fill them once every year. And then read the ones that you filled the previous year.

As the book states, there is no right or wrong answer. Only honest ones. Be prepared to face some tough questions. You'll be surprised about yourself.

It had opened my eyes on my life ,, and about some of the people in my life ... How sad I'm now because I didn't questioned myself those questions before ... :(

Interesting list of questions but no guidance on meaning. Implies you find your own meaning. Fairly generic list.

This is useful for any icebreaker you're planning, or just a conversation starter. I used it introspectively and I found sufficiently thought- provoking questions that got me thinking. At least it's a catalyst for an autobiography.

Basically a book of questions to provide prompts for your journals. Quite a few interesting grouped by subject like health, confessions, guilty pleasures, first time-Last time, faith, sex, etc.
Mohammed Al-Garawi
A waste of time and money. This is not a book. It's just a bunch of questions with blanks that you fill up. All the questions were personal, and for some reason they made me very uncomfortable.

I'd have to agree with many other reviews and say it's more of an exercise than a read. I am sure it helps some, but it is simply not for me at this point.

You can't name it a book, however, it's a good tool to think about yourself, and have a deeper look in it. It made me have second thoughts in a lot of things.

I liked how the right sequence of questions makes you ponder some of life's most fundamental issues.

This can't be read as an ebook. Has a bunch of questions, more of a journal - useless on the kindle!

Good for self reflection and to compare in a couple of years from the first time we "read" it.
