A pleasant surprise Very enjoyable I had mediocre expectations for this book sorry Mr Sesno but I was pleasantly surprised Much than a self help r business book Frank Sesno knows how to tell a good story and woven throughout the book are interesting examples from notable people For instance in the chapter War to the Knife: Bleeding Kansas, 1854-1861 on Strategic uestions Sesno tells the storyf Gen C A light Leaving Mother Lake: A Girlhood at the Edge of the World overviewn the craft f asking uestions mostly in a formal setting business meetings interviews ther professional exchanges etc though it touches n personal domains as well like end f life uestions for an ailing person and a few Introductory Algebra: Models Concepts Skills other challenging interpersonal exchangesThe author is a former reporter for CNN and is fairly comprehensive in his typologyf conversations which includes ueries for discovery like a general practitioner trying to diagnose cause Marriage After God: Chasing Boldly After God’s Purpose for Your Life Together of pain ueries to extract information from direct reports different typesf interviewing techniues dependent n purpose from a Terry Gross type interview a negotiation r interrogations ueries for scientific inuiry blue sky ueries job interviews etcThe real issue with these scenarios is that in almost all Blue Blood of the cases the author has implicit that the power between the interviewer and the interviewee is balanced towards the sidef the author The Gollywhopper Games: Friend or Foe or balancedr less eually However the most important types Parafilias (Spanish Edition) of interactions in people s lives will be how they navigate thepposite dynamic Even entrepreneurs It's Like This or CEOs have to navigate their investorsr boardBecause the book has little material The Mirage on negotiatingdiscussion tactics from a positionf perceived weakness I feel this book is less practical than it could have been For instance in business either as a consultant r as a member f a firm Rituels secrets des Templiers one is constantly trying to sell to some counterpartyften that counterparty can enable something you want resources for a project capital authority to do something etc In most f these scenarios you will be put in an inferior position and a lot f the tactics listed here will be much less effective Unless you explicitly set up a workshop environment for your mark its unlikely the counterparty will allow themselves to be interviewed so parsimony is inuiry is key The efficiency A Mild Suicide of conversation is not covered here and this is unfortunateThe closest examplef power disparity in this way the author mentions is when he was interviewing Yasser Arafat Beethoven for a Later Age: The Journey of a String Quartet of the PLO where he was just a journalist and the counterpart was a leaderf a nation Born to Ride: A Story About Bicycle Face or people Yet even this was a weak example as Arafatnly agreed to be interviewed because he was soliciting for help to western think tanks and NGOs during the 2nd Intifada If the author attempted to dive deep with any leader who possessed real power it is very likely he Origen: Scholarship in the Service of the Church or she would just be ignored as was the case when Western journalist attempted to interrogate Xi Jinping a few years ago during a joint presser with Obama In that case Xi Jinping literally just ignored the uestions and the journalist was not able to move their chips forward thus failing A similar What hidden skill links successful people in all walksf life What helps them make smart decisions The answer is surprisingly simple They know how to ask the right uestions at the right timeuestions help us break down barriers discover secrets solve puzzles and imagine new ways f doing things But few f us know how to uestion in a methodical way Emmy award winning journalist and media expert Frank Sesno aims to change that with Ask More From uestions.
