A More Beautiful Question: The Power of Inquiry to Spark Breakthrough Ideas
by Warren BergerBeautiful Question

In this groundbreaking book, Warren Berger shows that one of the most powerful forces for igniting change in business and in our daily lives is a simple, under-appreciated tool — one that has been available to us since childhood. Questioning — deeply, imaginatively, “beautifully” —can help us identify and solve problems, come up with game-changing ideas, and pursue fresh opportunities. So why are we often reluctant to ask “Why?”

Berger shows the most creative, successful people tend to be expert questioners. They’ve mastered the art of inquiry, raising questions no one else is asking — and finding powerful answers. The author takes us inside red-hot businesses like Google, Netflix, IDEO, and Airbnb to show how questioning is baked into their organizational DNA. He also shares inspiring stories of artists, teachers, entrepreneurs, basement tinkerers, and social activists who changed their lives and the world around them — by starting with a “beautiful question.”
