I purchased this book to use with my combined youth group of 7th to 12th graders. It is by far one of the best resources I have purchased. This book poses questions would you rather a or b and then the kids are to respond and tell why. This is the one book that consistently gets my youth talking. The discussion varies each time due to the various youth that are at an event. We have gotten off track on a number of questions due to the responses and then the youth wanting to respond to that etc. I recently lost my copy and will be purchasing a new one soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great in the classroom April 14, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Wihile substitute teaching in a junior high school, and waiting for an assembly to start the class asked to play "Would you rather..." This involved using the book and students volunteering to call out a number and then answer the would you rather... question. The biggest problem was having the class end before everyone got to answer a question.

Turnned out that this was normally a "reward" for hard work. It was very impressive and caused a great deal of comments, replies and interaction.

This handy pocket book provides a window into the minds of teenagers. Through fun, creative questions, kids become less guarded and begin to open up and share their values.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Conversation Starters December 9, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The What If, Would You Rather, Have You Ever, and Unfinished Sentences have opened doors for conversations with the youth of the church. They are great ice breakers for young adults who are not familiar with each other and start conversations that show differences and similarities of opinions. I would recommend all of them to anyone who works with youth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Help for Youth Ministry! November 18, 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was recommended this book at a church leadership conference and purchased it shortly after. This book will not disappoint you and is well worth the money spent. It can be used to get youth and workers talking in Sunday School or Small Groups. I have also used it to spark discussion in my weekly emails to people in the youth group as a youth pastor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helped us get our teens talking! November 25, 2014
By Kevin
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We were looking for something to get our teenagers to talk and engage with us at the kitchen table. They are pretty private creatures, but when you ask them something totally ambiguous, they'll chime in and give their opinion. We've made it through about 30 questions thus far and find it helps start conversations that otherwise would not happen. Already thinking of gifting this book as a Christmas present to another family!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great tool for encouraging interaction July 16, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've used this with youth groups, either letting students flip through and ask questions to the group or by posing questions to the group and having them walk to one side of the room or the other based on their answer (using this once in a lesson about the church in Laodicea from Rev 3 as we discussed the importance of being decisive). I've also used this with my family and with my in-laws to begin good conversations.
