Author: Warren Berger
Berger advocates using the inquiry process to tackle all of life's big struggles. Rather than always seeking answers, we should embrace the power of the questions themselves. As he shares in the book, this approach has led to such innovations as the Polaroid camera, Netflix and better, stronger, more affordable prosthetic limbs. Successful and innovative companies such as Google, IDEO and Airbnb have thrived on developing corporate cultures that encourage inquiry and exploration. Berger outlines a simple process for incorporating the strategy in our own lives: developing innovations in our own work, in our schools, redefining personal relationships or even planning a career move.
It's an inspiring and liberating idea. Too often, one bucks up against the How to? in life and gives up. But Berger shows how you can get out of that trap: with more questions. This is certainly a book I will come back to and share with others.
