Publisher's Summary

The secret to finding out anything you want to know is amazingly simple: Ask good questions. Most people trip through life asking bad questions - of teachers, friends, coworkers, clients, prospects, experts, and suspects. Even people trained in questioning, such as journalists and lawyers, commonly ask questions that get partial or misleading answers.

People in any profession will immediately benefit by developing the skill and art of good questioning. Find Out Anything From Anyone, Anytime will give you the power to:

  • Identify and practice good questioning techniques
  • Recognize types of questions to avoid
  • Know the questions required when hearing
  • Unconfirmed reports or gossip
  • Practice good listening techniques and exploit all leads
  • Determine when and how to control the conversation
  • Gain real expertise fast

Within professional interrogation circles, Pyle is known as a strategic debriefer - meaning there is no one around him more skilled at asking questions and getting answers. He has been training other interrogators in questioning techniques since 1989.

What the Critics Say

"With his style of questioning alone, Jim Pyle can get more information than most other interrogators using multiple techniques." (Gregory Hartley, coauthor of the best-seller How to Spot a Liar)

    "Reader speaks fast and 3/4 speed doesn't help"

    The book has great information and I'll probably buy the paperback for reference.

    The reader spoke too fast. You can tell this is his normal speed, so it's likely he lives in New York city. Sad part is that the audible iPhone app at 3/4 speed made the vocal cadence about right but produced a horrendous echo effect that was even more distracting. Get this on your free credit if you've got nothing better in your wish list, otherwise buy the hard copy for a better experience.

    "Seems audible is at faster talking pace."

    Even at speed of 1 it seemed very fast. Tried slowing down but then too slow. Get rid of the word count on reviews

    Story
    "Way too fast to digest properly."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Hard to get past the speed, but could do more on how to build a series of questions. Touches on this with examples from interigations and court room battles, but these are sterile and rare scenarios. Would have been good to have some more real world examples.


    What was most disappointing about James Pyle and Maryann Karinch ’s story?

    I would have liked some comment on working out what it is you want to discover.


    What didn’t you like about Walter Dixon’s performance?

    Playback was way too fast.


    Was Find Out Anything from Anyone, Anytime worth the listening time?

    Meh, some good points and definitely helped me, but could have gone further.
