New York Times Bestseller “What, What? is a welcome—and joyful—reminder that true wisdom comes from asking the right questions. Should you read this book? Absolutely.” —Clayton Christensen, bestselling author of How Will You Measure Your Life? Based on the wildly popular commencement address, the art of asking (and answering) good questions by the Dean of Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education. Whether we’re in the boardroom or the classroom, we spend far too much time and energy looking for the right answer. But the truth is that questions are just as important as answers, often more so. If you ask the wrong question, for instance, you’re guaranteed to get the wrong answer. A good question, on the other hand, inspires a good answer and, in the process, invites deeper understanding and more meaningful connections between people. Asking a good question requires us to move beyond what we think we know about an issue or a person to explore the difficult and the unknown, the awkward, and even the unpleasant. In Wait, What?, Jim Ryan, dean of Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education, celebrates the art of asking—and answering—good questions. Five questions in particular: Wait, what?; I wonder…? Couldn’t we at least…?; How can I help?; and What truly matters? Using examples from politics, history, popular culture, and social movements, as well as his own personal life, Ryan demonstrates how these essential inquiries generate understanding, spark curiosity, initiate progress, fortify relationships, and draw our attention to the important things in life—from the Supreme Court to Fenway Park. By regularly asking these five essential questions, Ryan promises, we will be better able to answer life’s most important question: “And did you get what you wanted out of life, even so?” At once hilarious and illuminating, poignant and surprising, Wait, What? is an inspiring book of wisdom that will forever change the way you think about questions.

Will you take the dare? Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen believe that life has much more to offer us...if we dare to reach for it. Dare To Win offers a plan for doing just that--by developing the kind of confidence and self-esteem that allows each of us to think like a winner. This simple program can work for anyone, no matter what their personal goals. Dare to conquer your fears and accept life's challenge. Dare to Win. In the authors' own words: Amazing results! That's what we all want in our lives. We might want more money. Or perhaps it's a more stimulating job we desire. Maybe it's true love, or a more gratifying sexual relationship. We might secretly dream of being in the movies, or of being president of a corporation, or even of entering politics. In our dreams we all aspire to greater things. Yet a great many of us simply aren't getting the results we want. We don't have enough money, romance, success or joy in our lives. We don't feel fulfilled or satisfied. In some very deep and personal way, we sense that we aren't living up to our full potential, that we aren't winners. Why? Why aren't we all what we want to be? Why don't we have all that we want? Why aren't we prosperous and blessed with the world's abundance? What's holding us back? Copyright 1994 Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen

Learn the tools to shed your mask of extroversion, develop your own magnetism, and reveal the true you. One third to one half of Americans are introverts in a culture that celebrates—even enforces—an ideal of extroversion and a cult of personality. Political leaders are charismatic, celebrities bask in the spotlight, and authority figures are assertive. It is no surprise that a “quiet revolution” has begun to emerge among the “invisible” half of the population, asserting that they are just as powerful in their own unique ways. The Irresistible Introvert embodies the spirit of this revival and breaks down the myth that charisma is reserved for extroverts only. This mini manifesto shows introverts how to master the art of quiet magnetism in a noisy world—no gregariousness required! Within these pages, you’ll discover how to shed the mask of extroversion and reveal a more compelling (and authentic) you. You’ll also learn how to: • Master the inner game of intrigue • Manage your energy for optimal engagement • Create an emotional ecosystem for charisma • Establish introverted intimacy • Cultivate communication skills for quiet types As a “professional” charismatic introvert, author Michaela Chung demonstrates that you no longer have to forcefully push yourself outward into the world against your nature, but can rather magnetize people inward toward the true you. In the process, you’ll learn to embrace your “innie life” and discover potential you never knew you had.
