Warren Berger

I'm a longtime journalist (The New York Times Magazine, Wired, GQ, Reader's Digest), book author, and speaker who has written about a variety of subjects over the years--creativity, innovation, and questioning being particular favorites.

I've interviewed and studied hundreds of the world's leading innovators, designers, and creative thinkers to analyze how they ask fundamental questions, solve problems, and create new possibilities.

In the past seven years, I've zeroed in on the power of questioning in our lives. It's a skill we all have innately but it falls into disuse for many of us as we move through school and the business world. And that's a shame. On my blog amorebeautifulquestion.com and in articles for Fast Company and the Harvard Business Review I've written about why questioning leads to innovation, how it can help you be more successful in your career, and how we can all get better at asking the kind of "beautiful questions" that spark change in our businesses and lives.

My "inquiry into the value of inquiry" led to the 2014 bestseller A MORE BEAUTIFUL QUESTION: The Power of Inquiry to Spark Breakthrough Ideas (Bloomsbury) in March 2014. And in October 2018 comes THE BOOK OF BEAUTIFUL QUESTIONS--featuring more than 400 provocative and useful questions, anecdotes, and examples that will help you DECIDE, CREATE, CONNECT, and LEAD.

Previous to the beautiful question books, l wrote the international bestseller Glimmer: How Design Can Transform Business and Your Life (Penguin; 2009; retitled "CAD Monkeys, Dinosaur Babies, and T-Shaped People" in the U.S. Penguin paperback).
