When you use power questions, you magnify your professional and personal influence, create intimate connections with others, and drive to the true heart of the issue every time.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
This is a good book if all it does it change your perspective and cause you to rethink your questions before you ask them.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narrator sounds like a computer generated voice. I found it almost intolerable.

Would you consider the audio edition of Power Questions to be better than the print version?
No, absolutely not. The content is decent and can be inspiring, but the narration by one of the authors is so horribly bad that I just stopped listening and never finished the book. I went out and got the print version instead. Another problem with the audiobook is the lack of an index of all the questions.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
I never reached the ending.
What didn’t you like about Andrew Sobel and Jerold Panas ’s performance?
One of them (I don't know which) was OK, the other was terrible, in fact so bad that I stopped the audiobook.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No. Its structure (many chapters, each on a separate 'power question') means it's best enjoyed in little bites.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There are definitely some thought provoking questions here that could help someone truly stand out in a personal or professional setting. The stories add interest and context to the questions, and often left me asking questions of my own.<br/><br/>I will definitely be giving this audiobook another listen (or two) to help the information sink in.
Any additional comments?
While I like the fact that the two authors alternate narrating chapters of the book, one of the authors reminds me a bit of Tommy Chong, which is a bit distracting at times.<br/><br/>Also, it would be nice to have a PDF reference sheet of all the questions to review now and then, rather than having to stop what you're doing and write them down. I started to write them down, and then I realized I had missed questions because I was too engrossed in the stories.

I loved this book because it explores a subject that is not covered by many text books. I learned a leadership skill (leading by questions puts you in control of the conversation). The book is narrated by both authors, so you don't really get a chance to get board; as the book takes you from one story to another.
This is one the best books I bought at Audible :)

This book is superficial, and way overpriced. Also, too many religious references.
There is little of value here. It's more like a pamphlet you would find in the waiting room of a psychologist's office.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I purchased the hard copy for myself and two others, because the other 297 questions are not on the Audible book.

I was already sold on the importance of questions before listening to this audio. While there were some great new questions, it was more the way he presented them that gave me a different angle and made them sink in a little deeper. Highly recommended.

Is one of these narrators a computer? It's ridiculous. I can't even explain it. On regular speed he sounds like he's on 1/4 speed. On 1.5 he sounds like an automated machine. It's so odd.
The narration distracts from the book's content. It's just okay - I can't imagine asking some of the questions they suggest. Others are things you've probably read a thousand times if you're an entrepreneur who reads business related books.
Honestly, I was expecting something different more business related. Not that this book does not give powerful business questions, and but what me surprised most where the deep and thought provoking philosophical questions!
I really liked the stories around the actual questions as it gives the context of when to ask what. however I am a bit skeptical about the dogma and the whole 'change your life to be happy' connotation. Some questions are very powerful at a subject matter but are absolutely neutral in their connotation and do not necessarily always have to relate to the 'purpose of life' matter.
all in all yet I learned some new questions to use, which is exactly what I would wish from an audiobook
