Publisher's Summary

What hidden skill links successful people in all walks of life? What helps them make smart decisions? The answer is surprisingly simple: They know how to ask the right questions at the right time.
Questions help us break down barriers, discover secrets, solve puzzles, and imagine new ways of doing things. But few of us know how to question in a methodical way. Emmy-award-winning journalist and media expert Frank Sesno aims to change that with Ask More.
From questions that cement relationships, to those that help us plan for the future, each chapter in Ask More explores a different type of inquiry. By the end of the book, you'll know what to ask and when, what you should listen for, and what you can expect as the outcome. Packed with illuminating interviews, the book explains:


How the Gates Foundation used strategic questions to plan its battle against malaria
How turnaround expert Steve Miller uses diagnostic questions to get to the heart of a company's problems
How NPR's Terry Gross uses empathy questions to dig deeper
How journalist Anderson Cooper uses confrontational questions to hold people accountable
How creative questions animated a couple of techie dreamers to brainstorm Uber

Both intriguing and inspiring, Ask More shows how questions convey interest, feed curiosity, and reveal answers that can change the course of both your professional and personal life.

Part story part informational

Overall I enjoyed the audio book. There was a change in content between informational dialogue and stories that supported the content. Each chapter focused on a different type of questioning, although it was hard to gain a clear grasp of the concepts without further examples.

The legacy chapter was the most intriguing and provoked the most thought. The author talks with his dying mother and interviews her albeit avoiding harder questions that he wishes he would have discussed.

Enlightening book about the power of questions and the ability to progress by asking the right questions.
