From the Back Cover
Ask yourself. Ask your family. Ask your colleagues. Ask your best friend, or a stranger. THE BOOK OF QUESTIONS: BUSINESS, POLITICS, AND ETHICS enables you to ask those things that seem so easy to answer-until you put yourself in the middle: dilemmas of freedom, justice, power, honesty, money, principles, and trust.
Provoke discussion, stimulate healthy arguments, fuel those all-too-rare talks that go deep into the night-and see if you're the same person you were ten years ago.

I use it to challenge my site management team every morning with great effect.
The only criticism I would have is that some questions while provacative are not for the meek.
Great job Mr Stock
What's most impressive about this is that very few of the questions seem to imply a "right" answer or try to push some sort of specific realization, and even those that do sort of come across that way don't have to be read in that way. Dr. Stock specifically says that he doesn't want to push an agenda--he merely wants to spur people to think more carefully about what it is they're doing and why.
The questions run the gamut from economic programs to health care, international policy to business. There are questions about hiring and firing employees, stealing from or betraying employers, tradeoffs in public programs and government spending, and so on. Many of the questions seem particularly relevant to today's political situations. While I wasn't as fond of the tradeoff questions in the "Love and Sex" book, I think that in this one they come across much better. Somehow they end up feeling less arbitrary and more like realistic quandaries.
Dr. Stock tries not to give us easy questions with easy answers, instead forcing us to truly think about the hard issues.
