Publisher's Summary

The motivating host of one of the nation's largest leadership conferences offers a collection of inspirational and applicable life lessons through conversations with various high-profile people.

Albert Einstein once said, "To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science." What is true of science, I'm convinced, is true in all of life. Great questions are often the keys that unlock possibilities for human advancement. That truth has been proven again and again throughout human history, as great interviewers from Bob Costas to Barbara Walters have captivated audiences and ignited imaginations. In a world where the messages of public figures and politicians are carefully crafted by publicists and media consultants, we often receive only partial pictures and manipulated facts. The right questions uncover truths we might not otherwise know. They pull back the curtain on the wizard and give us a more accurate view of reality. (Excerpt from the Introduction)

If you could sit down with the people you most admire and ask just one question, what would you ask?

One Question invites you to peer over the shoulder of a master interviewer with access to today's best and brightest as he delivers carefully crafted questions and collects answers guaranteed to surprise, challenge, and inspire.

  • What is Coach Tony Dungy's advice for achieving success while maintaining integrity?
  • What advice does Malcolm Gladwell give parents about instilling a work ethic in our children?
  • How does President Jimmy Carter suggest we continue forward and reinvent ourselves in new seasons?
  • What does Robin McGraw have to say to women about reaching their full potential both inside and outside their homes?

Never lose your child-like curiosity

Didn't know what to expect or how the book would be organized but thoroughly appreciated Ken's real-life practice of what he discussed in his very last chapter. one thoughtful, timely question to the specific person who can answer it. it was a great encouragement to listen to all the questions and answers but also just personally encouraging to don't be afraid to ask the question.

Great book to say the least

It was so much great content in this that covers all walks of life. From spiritual to personal growth Ken shares great insight with starting each chapter with a personal reflection and tie it all in with a GREAT Question to the person he’s interviewed. Definitely a new favorite

Exceptional and engaging

Ken Coleman is so good at engaging in conversation even in this format, you find yourself answering questions and thinking deeper about topics that you may have thought were settled. He may not be able to hear your answers but the truth is you’ll answer the questions and gain a deeper understanding of who you are!!

Ken Coleman nails it.

I had never heard of Ken Coleman until I saw him speak at a Dave Ramsey Smart conference. His passion for pursuing your dream life hit home with me! As a Modern Day Adventurer I live what I dream about and Kens book hits home! Anyone looking to find their purpose and passion will find it with One Question!
