Während die meisten Bücher über Kreativität und erfolgreiche Lebensführung schnelle und leicht verdauliche Antworten liefern, setzt der Innovationsforscher Warren Berger ganz woanders an: bei den Fragen. Berger hat die Strategien der kreativsten Köpfe aus Wirtschaft und Wissenschaft, darunter Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos und Larry Page, untersucht und festgestellt, dass sie alle eine besondere Fähigkeit auszeichnet - die richtigen Fragen zu stellen. Was wir als Kinder intuitiv tun, nämlich die Welt permanent in Frage zu stellen, um sie zu begreifen, treibt uns das Erziehungssystem aus und trimmt uns auf Antworten. Dabei kommt es heute mehr denn je darauf an, diese Fähigkeit wiederzubeleben, um zu kreativen Lösungen zu gelangen. Anhand von sechzig erstaunlichen Geschichten zeigt Berger, auf welche Weise die richtige Fragestellung den kreativen Prozess antreibt. Nur wenn wir unsere eingeübten Annahmen in Zweifel ziehen, wenn wir lernen, uns vertraute Situationen so zu betrachten, als wären sie neu, kann es gelingen, die richtigen Lösungen zu finden. Ein lebhaft und humorvoll geschriebenes und dennoch hoch fundiertes Buch, mit dem wir lernen, die Welt – und uns selbst – neu zu betrachten.
