My xpectations were much higher for this book since Warren Berger author of A Better uestion blurbed it I recommend you read Berger s book instead of this one Sesno is a former CNN anchorman and his leftist political views bleed through this book which is Evolution As Entropy especially funny on climate change since he has a chapter on asking scientific uestions andxplains that science is all about doubt Forging Gay Identities except for climate change where it seems to be about consensus Ask MoreThe Power of uestions is a very good read Gaining power and knowledge is as simple as asking the right uestion at the right time You will get answerssolutionsdiscover secretssolve puzzles and break down barriers THANK YOU GOOD READS FIRST READS FOR THIS FREE BOOK A light overview on the craft of asking uestions mostly in a formal setting business meetings interviews other professionalxchanges Forbidden History etc though it touches on personal domains as well likend of life uestions for an ailing person and a few other challenging interpersonal Fiche Blian ag Fás exchangesThe author is a former reporter for CNN and is fairly comprehensive in his typology of conversations which includes ueries for discovery like a general practitioner trying to diagnose cause of pain ueries toxtract information from direct reports different types of interviewing techniues dependent on purpose from a Terry Gross type interview a negotiation or interrogations ueries for scientific inuiry blue sky ueries job interviews Esteem Enlivened by Desire etcThe real issue with these scenarios is that in almost all of the cases the author has implicit that the power between the interviewer and the interviewee is balanced towards the side of the author or balanced or lessually However the most important types of interactions in people s lives will be how they navigate the opposite dynamic Even Flights of Fancy, Leaps of Faith entrepreneurs or CEOs have to navigate their investors or boardBecause the book has little material on negotiatingdiscussion tactics from a position of perceived weakness I feel this book is less practical than it could have been For instance in businessither as a consultant or as a member of a firm one is constantly trying to sell to some counterparty often that counterparty can nable something you want resources for a project capital authority to do something tc In most of these scenarios you will be put in an inferior position and a lot of the tactics listed here will be much less They Shall Be One Flesh effective Unless youxplicitly set up a workshop The Heritage of Arabo-Islamic Learning environment for your mark its unlikely the counterparty will allow themselves to be interviewed so parsimony is inuiry is key Thefficiency of conversation is not covered here and this is unfortunateThe closest Hereward (Hereward, example of power disparity in this way the author mentions is when he was interviewing Yasser Arafat of the PLO where he was just a journalist and the counterpart was a leader of a nation or people Yetven this was a weak Under One Sky example as Arafat only agreed to be interviewed because he was soliciting for help to western think tanks and NGOs during the 2nd Intifada If the author attempted to dive deep with any leader who possessed real power it is very likely he or she would just be ignored as was the case when Western journalist attempted to interrogate Xi Jinping a few years ago during a joint presser with Obama In that case Xi Jinping literally just ignored the uestions and the journalist was not able to move their chips forward thus failing A similar dynamic can be seen in current Trump interviewsThis book could be useful for anxec though I d think any successful xec would have mastered these skills already Not sure who the book would be most suitable for functionally It s a decent book on. 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 uestions at the right timeuestions help us break down barriers discover secrets solve puzzles and imagine new ways of doing things But few of us know how to uestion in a methodical way Emmy award winning journalist and media xpert Frank Sesno aims to change that with Ask More From uestions.
