I am not very outgoing, so I thought this book would help me start some conversations with people I don't know. Yes, there are some questions I never would have thought to ask, an some questions I had fun answering my self. However, there are so many duplicates! Just the same question rewritten 5 different ways! Not to mention, most of the questions were a little too personal to be asking someone you don't know. It is a great book to sit down with your mate on a rainy or snowy winter night,and each read a few questions. If for nothing else, you may learn a few new things about yourself!

I bought this book as a sort of game for my fiance' and I. I figured with 4000 questions, how could it be anything but dull?

I was disappointed as I flipped through the book, to see that we had already asked each other most of these questions. I was looking for interesting, conversation sparking questions--and these were your streotypical "just getting to know you" questions. We resorted to making up our own questions.

If you want a general book with general questions, this is for you. If you're looking for a more in depth, personal book with exciting questions--this is NOT it.

This is a wonderful book that will help you to learn more about yourself as well as those around you. I thought I knew my friend very well. After all, we had known each other for 15 years. But, after working through a few of these questions, I realized that there was a lot I didn't know. Turn off the TV, pick up this book, and get closer to those around you. You'll be glad you did. I'd write more, but I want to get back to reading. Thank you Barbara.

After reading other reviews and disagreeing with all of them, I had to write my own. This book is a great value. The questions are good questions and they are not too personal. Go ahead and ask! What are you afraid of? We have been having a blast with this book. If you cannot have great fun with this book too, then you need to find more interesting friends!

I have purchased 10 of these books and given them as engagement gifts, Christmas gifts and just because. I've had friends say they break it out at dinner with their friends and everyone loves it. Not sure about how to approach a subject with someone your dating? Break out this book. It's a perfect way to get to know not only them, but friends and family too!

I've had a lot of success using this book in advanced ESL classes, whether for writing or conversation topics.

I've also enjoyed using it with my wife, we take turns picking questions for each other to answer. (We've also added a lot of our own.)

Some people might feel overwhelmed if they take the approach of trying to think about or ask someone all or even most of the questions in order.

This is a book to be brought out occasionally and savored little by little. It's added more perspective and fun to our lives than any book we've read in a long time.

This is a good book with lots of fun questions for getting to know someone. Our family used it on a cross-country trip - lots of conversation starters. (Some questions not appropriate for all ages though!)

Format: Paperback
I originally saw this book at a fancy store and knew I could find it waaay cheaper here on Amazon, which I did. I have brought this to work and got many conversations started and plenty of dialogue. Its just a simple, fun tool to use to get to know the deeper side of most people. Not just the new strangers but people you think you know. It goes deep into many categories. I like how they are all separated and even though some questions are redundant from one category to another (just written in different format) does not mean its a waste- there are 4,000 questions overall. Its plenty to go around. Perfect for boring online nights in chatrooms or at any party. Its no big loss. TRY IT!
