“Everything we know has its origin in questions. Questions, we might say, are the principal intellectual instruments available to human beings.”
Asking Good Questions is ultimately a book about doing – asking good questions that encourage good answers and enable us to make sound decisions. Questions are powerful. They can change the way we think, the decisions we make and the actions we take in every area of life. A questioning attitude is a learning attitude and a competitive advantage. This book aims at helping us understand how questions work and how to make them work for us. The insights, key points and recommended actions in this book provide the foundations for developing the skills for asking good questions.
