From the Inside Flap

If you found out for certain there is a Heaven and a Hell, how would you change your life? If you had to name the one thing that most frightens you about growing old, what would it be? If you could have only one part of your body massaged every day, what part would you choose? If you could have any view in the world visible from your bed, what would it be? If you could suddenly find out that one work of fiction was actually true, what book would you select? If you could name the sexiest words anyone could say to you, what would they be? If you could put anyone you know on Prozac, who would you choose? If you could be the house cat or lap dog of any person on earth, whose would you choose to be?

If...(Questions for the Game of Life) was a bestselling sensation with readers around the world. If 2 is a collection of 500 completely new and tantalizing, provocative questions that really make you think.

I recently downloaded this book to my Kindle during a road trip. Asking and answering these questions made the time fly! The questions cover a variety of topics, encourage revealing answers, and help spark other conversations. I suppose you could come up with your own questions with some forethought, creativity, and no inhibition, but having this list gives you a quick selection and some off the wall questions. It's especially fun for a road trip or traveling with friends or your significant other.

I rated it at 4-stars because the Kindle edition is expensive- $9.99 is a lot for an electronic list of questions, and there were some minor formatting errors (Example: many questions started with "It" instead of "If" or weren't spaced evenly). There are about 10 questions on the free sample download, but after we went through those I sucked it up and paid for the book for the instantaneous download and entertainment value.

This book was so thought provoking. I just bought it today, and I have already read throught all of it. It makes you think so deeply. I sometimes doubted my own beliefes. You end up analizing yourself so much, you find out who you are. It is a sort of self-help book. Not only did I ask my family some questions while I was reading it, but I called my best friend and asked her a few. I will be taking this to school with me on Monday. I am really interested to know the reactions people will have to this. I recommend it to anyone who is even slightly interested.

I use this for my therapy group warm up questions for adolescent teens. It does have some interesting questions, and the teens actually seem to enjoy taking turns asking questionings. HOWEVER, it is important to go through the book and hide the sexually inappropriate questions.

Format: Hardcover
This is a little book of 129 pages meant to get you thinking.It has 500 Questions for you to think about,to ask others,to use in a group,or to do whatever you choose to do with them.
The questions cover a wide range of topics;everything from your work,ambitions,pet peeves,friends,enemies,interests,faith,your relatives,family,music and art preferences,favorite people,books,and on and on.
Many of the questions are deep,while many are shallow and many will make you stop and think about answering.Some you will find silly and simply skip over.
Most people just like to take things pretty much as they come and don't take a lot of time to think about some of the things brought up here.Some people are forever wondering what would have been, if they made different life choices.Is all this sort of questioning worthwhile,---well,only you can answer that for yourself.
If you are the type that is always asking yourself stuff like this;then you have probably already asked yourself many of these questions;but just maybe you overlooked something----then this book may give you a few more things to ask yourself.If you are the type that doesn't wonder "what if ?" a lot;then this book will just seem like a waste of time.
Even if a lot of the questions seem to be useless to think about;maybe you might take a hint from this book and come up with a bunch of your own questions to ask yourself.
Then again,since time is limited for all of us;use it as you wish and watch a football game,go have a beer with a friend,read a book,go for a walk or go fishing.Afrer all, what's it all really matter anyway?
Hey,I just got a brilliant idea.
Open the book at random,copy a question on a small piece of paper the leave it on a co-workers desk,slip it in a coat pocket,or simply leave it anywhere someone might find it.Then,sit back and watch their facial expressions as they ponder the question,and wonder where it came from.

This is the second book in the "If" series of questions. By now the answers should be easier but "If 2" provokes 500 more questions to contemplate each one a little deeper in theory than those contained in book one. Another great conversation piece and get-to-know-you type book.

This book was just like the first. If you enjoyed the first one then I would most definitely look into purchasing this one. This book is great if you have free time and just want to sit and think about things. It is perfect for reading with a group of friends or a significant other. Some of the questions are absolutely ridiculous and will result in a lot of laughter. I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys imagining themselves in crazy scenarios. I would buy it again.

This book is great...I use it all the time to start conversations between me and my friends. These always turn out to be the most meaningful. I have learned so much about myself and others from this book. Check out the first one too!

I purchased this book as a birthday gift for my friend because years ago, I brought the first volume of this book, "If...", on a camping trip with friends, and one evening we sat around the campfire answering questions from the book...there was a lot of laughing, and we learned quite a few interesting things about each other! This book will bring back those memories, and, hopefully, spark some new ones.
