    كتاب جيد أهم ملاحظة انه الترجمة جيدة. الكتاب يتناول السؤال كفن على كل مدير أن يتقنه وليس كما يوحي العنوان من حيث طرح الموضوع بشكل عام ومع ذلك يمكن تطويع هذه المهارات في حياتنا اليومية والت يتعد الإدارة جزء أساسي فيها.

    The beginning of the book was promising, but I would be lying if I told I wasn't let down. Although the book is about asking questions, it does not shy from warning you time and again that asking too many of them will bring trouble (thanks to author's personal experiences doing just that in his early career). The conclusion even went on to remind the readers that Socrates was killed for asking too many questions. Anyway, so the key point here is not just asking questions but asking better questi The beginning of the book was promising, but I would be lying if I told I wasn't let down.

Anyway, so the key point here is not just asking questions but asking better questions and here in lies my problem with the book. After a good 25%, the book goes on to explain 15 different types and structures of a question which I am sure nobody has the time to recollect when asking questions spontaneously. I felt all this technical dissection of a question was not practically helpful in asking better questions. Also I thought the book could have been better if it didn't come off as exclusively for corporate managers. After all, questions are essential tools even for creative professionals and personal productivity in general. If I had to describe the book in one word I would say "IMPRACTICAL".

    Asking the right questions in a way that doesn't offend or annoy is an art. It helps with unbeknown problems, which no one is aware of or give much thought. Asking too many question is also not good. It would be better if there were more examples or stories in the book. Like non-fiction books, the key is applying. Reading is good info to know but applying what you read is turning knowledge into power. Asking the right questions in a way that doesn't offend or annoy is an art.

    البداية مشوقة كونه ابتدأ بقصة .الكتاب يتحدث عن طريقة طرح الأسئلة خصيصا في المجال العمل . ما كنت أبحث عنه هوالطريقة الأفضل لطرح الاسئلة في مجال حياتي اليومية لم أجد ما أبحث عنه ولكني استرسلت في قراءته إلى .أن أنهيته. وأعتقد أنه كتاب ثري لمن يبحث عن تطوير طريقة ادارته للموظفين .أحببت جدا الجزئية الأخيرة بالكتاب لاقتراحها اسماء محاوريين جيدين مع ذكر نوعية الأسئلة التي يجيدونها

    Skim it It’s a book about asking questions. There was some solid points, and I plan to incorporate some of his suggestions. Not entirely worth a deep read.

    A very instructive book. It's a good manual for those who are already in the road for a time to review his operand mode. A very instructive book. It's a good manual for those who are already in the road for a time to review his operand mode.

    Interesting and I learned a few things but it is only about business questions This book focuses on surviving the evil corporate world, a world, imho, that should not even exist if the land of the free still did. But, America has fallen to these evil corporations so it looks like we all better find ways to survive it. Although, it seems like asking the right questions, "Should corps be allowed to put profit before human life as they do?", would probably get you killed as dead as Socrates.

Also, the author describes how most if not all of his colleagues hated him because of his way of asking questions. People hate him. The evil corporations love him for it. Hmmmm

    I didn't finish reading this book because I felt that it had nothing that was new to me, and I have not read any other books of the same genre. The anecdotes from the author's personal experience were interesting, but I didn't learn anything from them. In general, this book just gave me a bad impression of managers since the ones mentioned in this book all messed up because they didn't ask the right questions but then went on to get rewarded.

    the translated book is not well translated at all. as for the origonal book it is very usefull as i consider reading it over sometimes again. it consist of an origonal and proffisional way of looking at questions and it is really an art to be done properly. how good questions can give u a boost in ur career or end it all. the idea can be adapted and applied in real life somehow. i advice the book in english

    I downloaded this as a free ebook recommended by Spec in the comments section of a Free Friday selection from Barnes and Noble. I read it because I believe in the value of better questions to promote learning and cooperative efforts in groups. I don't have a problem with the questions suggested by Fadem. My ranking of only two stars is with the format which I believe could be better with some editing so there might be less repetition. I recommend it as a reference book.

    A thorough guide for managers, whose job is to supervise people. Since no one can expect a doctor to work without a stethoscope, a dentist without a pick, a painter without a brush, managers can't work without their toolkit, which is questions. I agree with the author that the quality of answers depend upon the quality of the questions as well as the way these are asked. Good read for managers!

    The suggested questions are good, but I didn't agree with much of the author's philosphy on business -- far too worried about not making waves -- sometimes those are the questions that are most important to ask.

    Incredibly thorough, specific and example-filled, this has got to be the definitive guide to asking questions. Though primarily geared to business, the processes and techniques detailed here will help any organization or group ask better questions, get better answers -- and see better results.
