This was a gift to me from one of the pastors of my church to use as a conversation starter in group meetings. I skimmed it and highlighted questions I liked so I can use them in the future. I have yet to ask any of the questions to anyone but myself so I will try and update this review once I have used it in a group setting.

I like the way the questions are divided and ordered. They are broken up into sections by topic such as your personal history or your religious beliefs. And each section st

Great book,tons of interesting and fun questions that you can use as a conversation starter to break the ice or to get to know someone on deeper level
I had fun answering some of the questions myself ,it's good to know your own perspective on some issues :)

Ever find yourself unable to think of anything to say? Need an ace-in-the-hole to start the conversation when you are at a mix-and-mingle? Do you lead a small group of some kind – a book club, a work group, a Bible study? Are you the one always trying to find an ice breaker activity? Have a difficult time finding a subject to discuss with your grandchildren? This book of 1001 conversation starters was included in the Big Deal Sale and is still selling for $2.99 today. After asking myself what wa ...more

I own a handful of small group icebreaker/discussion-starter books. I use this one more than any of them. I love the fact that the questions are categorized by the type of question. That's very useful. I recommend it for anyone who leads a group or class as a ready reference tool.
This is a book I would definitely buy for a long road trip or camping trip, an ESL conversation group, or if I were organizing a mixer event. May even be good for first date ideas.

But, since I won't be in any of these situations in the near future, for now it will be returned to the library.

(Questions are organized into different categories, including light & easy, likes & dislikes, opinions & perspectives, etc.)

Finished it while waiting the turn in the hospital.. clearly it has so many questions, but not the deep intellectual, stirring thoughts kind I am looking for..

Quite a number of these questions are not suited to be asked to another person, but if you are reading the book by yourself and contemplate how YOU would answer, the book can be quite entertaining.

I skipped the last chapter on "hardcore religion" questions entirely, the "religion light" questions were totally sufficient for my interests. But hey, that's probably why the book has 1001 questions for you.

I recently found a site called who has a section to ask people questions as yourself or masked.
I like asking stranger's question from this book on there.
I also enjoy being asked questions back.
I feel this question would make great daily question for journal writing in an English class if I was a teacher.

benar2 buku yang isinya "berbagai pertanyaan tentang apa saja". sempat mencelos liat judul tapi isinya di luar dugaan :P

sangat kreatif!

begitu banyak pertanyaan, tapi tak ada satupun yang memiliki jawaban. seperti kata Bob Dylan, "The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
Due to the fact of that I stumbled over many political and religious questions, I don't think this is for ANY occasion.

Anyways, it's good that i can be faced with those questions so i am prepared to deflect them with wit.

A great little book of often overly simplified questions. Great for seeding a discussion with youth or as an icebreaker. Needs some polish and thought to be used, but a great, quick resource.
I love taking this book when my husband and I go out to eat. If there's not much to talk about that day we can discuss one of these questions :)

Excellent book of ice-breakers and conversation starters. Great in small groups and or even in one-on-one conversation.
