5.0 out of 5 stars Plain Speaking for Amazing Results - So Good I Bought 20 Copies, October 9, 2009
This review is from: Just Ask Leadership: Why Great Managers Always Ask the Right Questions (Hardcover)
This is one of those books that at one level seems to state the obvious. Look beyond it and you will find that it is jam packed with nuggets of useful information and practical advice. It is extremely well written and is one of those rare books, that once I had started I could not put down.

Who could have thought that so much common sense could be packed into just 5 chapters. The book is not at all theoretical and instead is rooted very firmly on the practical, can do side of life. Anyone who follows along with the book and ask the questions posed of themselves can't help but see and make big improvements in their business life.

I particularly liked the case study examples and the easy to follow approach.

The depth of the book, as the title implies is how to ask questions and what questions to ask, some of the questions seem simple, but as the examples show, the results are amazing. Each chapter looks at a different aspect of leadership and provides a list of questions that you can ask to improve, it then provides details and insights into why the question is used and how to understand the implications of the answers.

I guess the best way to summarise the book for you is to say that having read it I bought 20 copies to give out to my friend and clients!
