Think About It

The Book of Questions (Revised and Updated) – Gregory Stock, PhD. (Workman Publishing)

Think about it. No I mean really THINK about it. In this day and age of screens, from small to large, constantly being in front of us, when was the last time you really thought about answering a question that didn’t involve consulting Siri or Google for the answer?

Back in the dark ages, 1987 to be exact, Gregory Stock put out a wonderful, thought provoking little book entitled The Book of Questions, that as the title suggests, asked a series of questions that are more often than not a mirror into your heart and soul. Stock is back with a revised and updated version of the book that asks the questions, and demands more than a simple yes or no response.

As an introduction, Stock gives a quick recap of some of the changes that the world has gone through in the time since the first edition of the book and the questions here certainly reflect those changing times. With the holidays quickly approaching, this book would not only be a great gift, but certainly would make for interesting conversation with family and friends. It would also be interesting if you had the first edition, how folks answers may have changed over the course of time.
