What hidden skill links successful people in all walks of life? What helps them make smart decisions? The answer is surprisingly simple: They know how to ask the right questions at the right time.
Questions help us break down barriers, discover secrets, solve puzzles, and imagine new ways of doing things. But few of us know how to question in a methodical way. Emmy-award-winning journalist and media expert Frank Sesno aims to change that with Ask More.
From questions that cement relationships, to those that help us plan for the future, each chapter in Ask More explores a different type of inquiry. By the end of the book, you’ll know what to ask and when, what you should listen for, and what you can expect as the outcome. Packed with illuminating interviews, the book explains:

• How turnaround expert Steve Miller uses diagnostic questions to get to the heart of a company’s problems
• How NPR’s Terry Gross uses empathy questions to dig deeper
• How journalist Anderson Cooper uses confrontational questions to hold people accountable
• How creative questions animated a couple of techie dreamers to brainstorm Uber

Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I give the book two stars rather than just one because it is readable despite Sesno's fetish for jargon. I read the entire book in one day. I wish I could have that day back.
Please focus on reducing not adding more content that is needed.
It used the same format for each chapter which became stale after the second chapter.
There was a lack of takeaways.
The summary at the end was useful, and the book could have mostly been reduced to just this.
