I can’t recommend it enough.
Reading this book brought to mind the old publishing practices where authors got paid by every word written. Get ready to force yourself to stay awake.
This is such a book.
Curiosity and inquisitiveness are so under-rated and so essential to, well, everything worthwhile. Whether you are engaged in business, raising a family, falling in love or trying to be have more fun at cocktail parties, fortifying yourself with a massive repository of great questions to ask, and genuine curiosity about what you hear will add to your success. Start by reading this book!
What the book is, is a much more serious self-help for getting into business management tome. It is a solid, serious book. "Light" and "light-hearted" are not words that apply to this. It provides that same kind of outline: Question, Why, How, Benefits. However, it contemplates each of these for half a chapter or more. And it isn't a contemplation of life and everything, but rather of work-life, business situation, and career applications.
As long as you acquire the book with the proper expectation, it is a quality book, well done. Just not my style.
