    "A Great Listen"

    This one was very cleverly written, and has tons of applicable advice that can have an immediate impact on your thinking processes.

    The prmise for this one is that we should be in a "learner" mode as much as humanly possible, and not a "judger" mentality (this applies both to considerations regarding others AND in self-considerations). Adams reveals several techniques to get yourself thinking in terms of questions, instead of statements and answers. It conduces higher level thinking in conversation, more harmony with people in your life, and better results, both at work and at home.

    Very helpful stuff. Highly recommend, especially for people who are responsible for a lot of folks at work.

    "I Finally Found The Answer I Was Seeking!"

    I'm a 46-yr old professional male. For years I have been trying to understand the "path / road" to the peace and success that I desire in my life. Dr. Adams' book gave me the answer my spirit was craving. For the first time in my life I know understand why "knowing how to question" is the first important step in achieving anything in life. Everyday I see my family, friends and co-workers struggle with life's problems. The same problems that I once struggled with. I also know that if they will "allow" themselves to "learn-to-question" like a "learner"...they will find the answers they seek. All my life I sought "answers". But know I have learned to "question" - and it is truly changing my life for the better.

    The "anxiety" of life is no more!

    Questions...what a powerful tool when understood.

    Thank you Dr. Adams and God bless.

    "Excellent audio on questions and their effects"

    Great book on question thinking. It describes how a few key questions you ask yourself and others can change your emotion, how you relate to others and your actions. While I did not like the authors attempt to make a thin plot story to describe her theory, at least she tied it all together in the last chapter and has free material on her web site that helps you implement what you heard.

    "The Power of Questions"

    "Questioning" is a skill rarely taught in school, but doing it well - that is, asking the right questions of the right people - can radically transform attitudes, actions, and results. This book provides easy-to-learn tools that can make a significant and immediate difference in people's business and personal lives. Written as an engaging fable, it inspires readers to take charge of their thinking in order to accomplish goals, improve relationships, advance careers, investigate new territories, and in general gain greater life satisfaction. This book explains how to "be your own coach," outlines the author's QuestionThinking Model, and lists the top 12 questions for change. Real-world examples provide practical models for applying the principles in a variety of situations, while a Choice Map is a useful visual tool that demonstrates that everyone has a choice in every situation, even if it is not immediately apparent.

    "Important Point of View for your Self Improvement"

    Didn't excite me too much about the narration but it was ok. The point to bring you back to listening and think about things in a new and opposite view is simply valuable for everyone. I listened about half way the second time and will likely again. If you are in self help and self improvement, you should go for it. It will help you.

    "Egocentric Babble DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK"
    What would have made Change Your Questions, Change Your Life better?

    40 minutes and 10 seconds into this book I had to shut it off. I had had enough. Not a peep about what this book was about in those 40 minutes and 10 seconds. This was quite possibly the most bloated self serving 40 minutes and 10 secs in the history of written word. I can only guess the entire book was like this. 1/5 of the book was so self serving the rest of it could be the most valuable reading I have ever needed yet I will never know, I honestly could not engure another sound coming from the reader.


    Has Change Your Questions, Change Your Life turned you off from other books in this genre?

    YES, would rather fail then endure this type of trash again.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    No


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NONE


    Any additional comments?

    Deleted it from my library. I pray no other listener will have to endure this elitist testimony of self servering babble.

    "Great Lesson, a Tad Cheesy"
    What did you love best about Change Your Questions, Change Your Life?

    I really like the framework of the message, and am happy to have found another way for me to convey how powerful our words are (for ourselves and others) and recognizing just how many choices we all make every day.


    What did you learn from Change Your Questions, Change Your Life that you would use in your daily life?

    I'll be using the lessons forever more. Being cognizant of my questions leading me down a path of learning or growth versus a path of judgement and despair is a huge eye opener and a quick-hitting reality check in the face of adversity or struggle.


    Any additional comments?

    The only drawback for me is the story is written in an overly simplistic style, so I find myself daydreaming while it's on. Probably the easiest explanation is that it's written at about the 8th grade level - the lessons and overall message are worth it, but I feel as though I'm reading a primer as opposed to a business book.

    "Great book for learning and building the questions"

    This is a geat book for leanding and building the questiion culture. I have been reading and listening to many books in the question culture but this books gives you solid workshops for starting with the questioning culture and building on top of it. I have put to use immediately and started to see the results.

    worth the money.

    "Great content and pleasant listening"

    The audio exceeded my expectations both in terms of content and narration.
    Questions determine the outcome of our actions, hence it is crucial to get the right questions first - after listening to "Change your questions..." I am absolutely convinced of that! The content is structured in interesting way, as a story of life of Bob to whom many people can relate (I could!), so it is not a boring handbook. Bob is absolutely human, so rules that he starts following were feasible to try for me :)
    I was expecting more "how to be happier" kind of audiobook, so was pleasantly surprised how much of its content I can use in business environment.
    The narration is just excellent.

    "Is the material complete?"

    The style of this book is motivational and whilst it is presented as a narative, there are some real life examples and situations which I could easily relate to. A very good aspect of this book which I have not found in many, is that it provides actual tools that can be used in daily life.

    A couple of irritations though. This book mentions a workbook and a chart which should be made available with the audio download. Although, in one of the early chapters a web site is mentioned from where the chart can be downloaded, I had to register with them for a newsletter first. Even so, I have still not found a way to get the chart.
