To get the best answer―in business, in life―you have to ask the best possible question. Innovation expert Warren Berger shows that ability is both an art and a science.

It may be the most underappreciated tool at our disposal, one we learn to use well in infancy―and then abandon as we grow older. Critical to learning, innovation, success, even to happiness―yet often discouraged in our schools and workplaces―it can unlock new business opportunities and reinvent industries, spark creative insights at many levels, and provide a transformative new outlook on life. It is the ability to question―and to do so deeply, imaginatively, and “beautifully.”

In this fascinating exploration of the surprising power of questioning, innovation expert Warren Berger reveals that powerhouse businesses like Google, Nike, and Netflix, as well as hot Silicon Valley startups like Pandora and Airbnb, are fueled by the ability to ask fundamental, game-changing questions. But Berger also shares human stories of people using questioning to solve everyday problems―from “How can I adapt my career in a time of constant change?” to “How can I step back from the daily rush and figure out what really makes me happy?”

By showing how to approach questioning with an open, curious mind and a willingness to work through a series of “Why,” “What if,” and “How” queries, Berger offers an inspiring framework of how we can all arrive at better solutions, fresh possibilities, and greater success in business and life.

Having heard Mr. Berger speak, I can report that he is an engaging presenter who has a number of sensible things to communicate about the importance of questions. I was glad I heard him because it raised my opinion of his work since I find this book to be rather mediocre. It’s not the theme that is a weakness of the book. In fact, I think there is value in reminding people of the importance of inquiry. Where the book falls short is in the typical shortcomings of books in the business genre: it is about three times as long as it needs to be (for a book that is already short) and it doesn’t actually provide concrete solutions to the problems it poses.

I often find that books meant to help people innovate (particularly in business) have decent points to make but tend to make the same point over and over. Here Mr. Berger reminds us of the inquisitiveness of children and explores why we lose this ability as we age. Then he encourages us to bring back this ability in business, in life, and in education where he repeats the same variation on the theme over and over. However, as he keeps saying we need to question more, and as he provides some techniques to do so, he can’t say when or how exactly we should be doing this because, in fact, sometimes we shouldn’t be asking questions, we should be acting.

Still, as I said before, there is definite value in the point Mr. Berger is trying to make and many of the anecdotes from life and business that he brings in to make his point are interesting, though I’m not sure about all the asides. However, for a reader who wants to be reminded of the importance of questioning, this is a good place to begin.

I first heard Warren Berger on The Knowledge Project podcast, then purchased this book in an effort to improve my own questioning ability. While it is a great resource for asking better questions, this book offers so much more than that. It's an insightful look into the role of inquiry in modern life. Berger suggests that as the world becomes more complex and dynamic, questions become more valuable than answers. He offers a framework to formulate and ask better questions. But he also digs deeper into topics such as the age of adaptation, design thinking, our education system, and the reasons people avoid fundamental questioning. As an added bonus, there are some brilliant questions Berger challenges us to consider for ourselves along the way.

After reading Glimmer, Warren Berger's 2009 book looking at designers and design thinking, I became a fan of sorts and pre-ordered A More Beautiful Question anticipating something good as a follow-up. I wasn't disappointed. Like Glimmer -- and perhaps design thinking -- Berger takes both a deep dive and a broad stroke over his subject matter. This is tough to do well, but Berger pulls it off.

There is something delightful about looking at something that seems so obvious and simple, but is far from simplistic, in detail. Berger goes through the vast swaths of research and evidence on question formation and innovation and blends it seamlessly with anecdotes, observations and questions...lots and lots of questions. To 'live the title' of the book, the text is organized around questions and, at least with the Kindle, the questions are hyperlinked to explanations at the back about their origin and relevance. This feature was wonderful and frustrating -- but largely due to technology. I read using a Nexus tablet, but my preferred reader is the original Kindle. On that latter device, the linking becomes a frustration in that it is sometimes hard to get back to your place. But that's a small point.

Berger's style of writing is engaging, balancing conciseness with informality, and using enough revisiting of ideas in different places in the text to thread ideas throughout the narrative, but not too much to feel repetitive. I loved this just as I loved Glimmer.

What a reader will take from this is that questions are important, that the best (and most consistent) innovators, leaders and scientists are typically great at asking questions and not just providing answers. Indeed, Berger makes the case that the question and answer are inextricably linked showing dozens of examples of how the habits of questioning lead to exciting outcomes. He also offers a challenge to anyone involved in education -- which, he'd argue is nearly everyone in this age of change and ongoing learning -- to examine how questions are encouraged and discouraged to shun curiosity. This has enormous implications and, as we see, gets replicated in our businesses and other organizations.

If this book does anything for you I hope it gets you to ask better questions and enjoy not always having answers. Taken to heart, the message of paying attention to the questions -- living the questions if you will -- is one that may have profound consequences on your life, work, and learning.

This was a refreshing, powerful read that lingered in my mind. And every conversation I had for a long time after. I have recommended it to many friends and strangers. Am considering ordering a stack and handing them out. Is like an antidote to the lobbing of opinions, tirades, emotional appeals, soundbites, and status quo found in our discourses national, local, online, and perhaps at the dinner table.

Is not just a book about change for change's sake, either. Revolution minus reason is not the goal. Innovation requires perseverance, personal motivation, and a specific need. Questions.

This book is great for high schoolers, college students, adults, innovators, mechanics, doctors, teachers, administrators, lawyers, janitors, jailers, pilots, housewives, politicians, clergy, nurses, therapists, zoo keepers, authors, artists, tv producers, scientists, secretaries, salesman, farmers, grandparents, godparents, new parents, never parents, and in a nutshell: any person who thinks, wonders, acts, and lives on this planet.

Might be interesting as a book club read. Certainly good as a book re-read. Am off to pick it up again. Am eager to re-read the narrative of the man whose personal "why" transformed the world of prosthetics. One of many Beautiful questions.
