This is a personal testimony, a testimony of my own experience of thought and life. It is not intended to be objective and makes no claim to establish eternal truths. In fact I rather despise claims to objectivity in philosophy; the point of view is the thing. I should have liked to call it “A Lyrical Philosophy,” using the word “lyrical” in the sense of being a highly personal and individual outlook. But that would be too beautiful a name and I must forego it, for fear of aiming too high and leading the reader to expect too much, and because the main ingredient of my thought is matter-of-fact prose, a level easier to maintain because more natural. Very much contented am I to lie low, to cling to the soil, to be of kin to the sod. My soul squirms comfortably in the soil and sand and is happy, Sometimes when one is drunk with this earth, one’s spirit seems so light that he thinks he is in heaven. But actually he seldom rises six feet above the ground.

From the bestselling author of A More Beautiful Question, hundreds of big and small questions that harness the magic of inquiry to tackle challenges we all face--at work, in our relationships, and beyond.
When confronted with almost any demanding situation, the act of questioning can help guide us to smart decisions. By asking questions, we can analyze, learn, and move forward in the face of uncertainty. But "questionologist" Warren Berger says that the questions must be the right ones; the ones that cut to the heart of complexity or enable us to see an old problem in a fresh way.
In The Book of Beautiful Questions, Berger shares illuminating stories and compelling research on the power of inquiry. Drawn from the insights and expertise of psychologists, innovators, effective leaders, and some of the world's foremost creative thinkers, he presents the essential questions readers need to make the best choices when it truly counts, with a particular focus in four key areas: decision-making, creativity, leadership, and relationships.
The powerful questions in this book can help you:
- Identify opportunities in your career or industry
- Generate fresh ideas in business or in your own creative pursuits
- Check your biases so you can make better judgments and decisions
- Do a better job of communicating and connecting with the people around you
Thoughtful, provocative, and actionable, these beautiful questions can be applied immediately to bring about change in your work or your everyday life.
When dermatologist Peter Wisch learned how to channel higher wisdom, he wondered whether that ability would be able to help his patients as well. Both he and many of his patients had longed to find answers to mystifying questions regarding more profound reasons for illness. Remarkably, what he found proved to be both surprising and revelatory. The knowledge he discovered was quite different, albeit not invalidating, than what he had been taught in medical school. Beneath all the biological, chemical, physiological, and other physical causes for disease exist emotional, mental, and spiritual ones. The messages he received not only resonated with patients, but its advice when passed along and heeded, seemed to help heal their conditions. What began as innocent curiosity revolutionized his way of understanding and treating illness that does not discredit the field of medicine, but instead holds great potential to enhance it. In Revelations on Healing, Dr. Wisch describes how you too can take control of your own health by applying fundamental metaphysical tenets to awaken the healer within you and manifest your own well-being.
