    This book didn’t really catch fire with me Why as we grow up we lose the ability to throw out powerful generative uestions is a subject worthy of inuiry All the so as this dwindling capacity is very often associated with damaging implications for our personal wellbeing and professional success This beautiful uestion does not lead to an eually compelling answer however Warren Berger gets lost in a territory that has been thorough

In this groundbreaking book journalist and innovation expert 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 uestioning 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 WhyBerger's surprising findings reveal that even though children start out asking hundreds of uestions a day uestioning falls off a cliff as kids enter school In an education and business culture de. This is one of those books that would have been twice as good if it were half as long You d be better off selecting the best posts from the blog that eventually gave rise to the book Still I loved the concept and there is no shortage of interesting examples of the benefits of asking uestionsChildren are notorious for their uestions According to one estimate they ask around 40000 uestions between ages two and five driving their parents crazy in the process Then something happens and most of us stop asking uestions We lose our curiosityBerger has a few theories as to why He says our education system values answers than asking good uestions As we grow up and become sensitive to how others perceive us we stop asking uestions for fear that others will think us stupid And finally some stop asking uestions because uestions challenge authority and uestioning authority can get us in trouble I m most interested in the last type of uestion the kind that challenges authority and challenges our inherited assumptions Those who have the least power are also the least likely to uestion authority it s one of the thorniest obstacles in our field of transparency accountability and governanceMuch of the first half of the book profiles the Right uestion Institute a non profit based in Cambridge Massachusetts with a staff of just four that teaches uestion asking as a catalyst for microdemocracy It s the kind of place I d intern at today if I were a recent college grad I love the concept of Microdemocracy that we can act democratically in our everyday lives by simply asking uestions of our public officials and institutions There is something empowering about asking uestions though it reuires us to be self confident enough to be vulnerable about our ignorance Unfortunately society rewards the bombastic experts that claim to have all the answersThere is plenty in the book to disagree with Berger is strangely enad with Silicon Valley technologists and pundits though he has a knee jerk tendency to criticize technology s effect on inuiry Sure having Google and Wikipedia at our fingertips can make us lazy but they re also wonderful tools for the inuisitive and can give us the necessary context to ultimately ask better uestions Berger says experts don t ask good uestions yet then he seems to introduce everyone as an expert and can t help but mention their credentials His own bio calls him an innovation expert whatever that is I wish the book featured fewer technologists and insights from researchers and investigative journalists And I wish it were slightly nuanced in distinguishing between different types of uestions those in search of facts opinions or the kind that uestion assumptions Nitpicking aside it s a worthwhile read and a good reminder to regain some of our childlike curiosity The Archetype Of Initiation yet then he seems to introduce everyone as an expert and can t help but mention their credentials His own bio calls him an innovation expert whatever that is I wish the book featured fewer technologists and insights from researchers and investigative journalists And I wish it were slightly nuanced in distinguishing between different types of uestions those in search of facts opinions or the kind that uestion assumptions Nitpicking aside it s a worthwhile read and a good reminder to regain some of our childlike curiosity

Ul uestionBerger explores important uestions such as Why aren't we nurturing kids' natural ability to uestion and what can parents and schools do about that Since uestioning is a starting point for innovation how might companies and business leaders begin to encourage and exploit it And most important how can each of us re ignite that uestioning spark and use inuiry as a powerful means to rethink and reinvent our lives A More Beautiful uestion outlines a practical Why What If How system of inuiry that can guide you through the process of innovative uestioning helping you find imaginative powerful answers to your own beautiful uestion.
