Really enjoying using the questions, thank you
I found the questions to be great conversation starters to get to know friends and new acquaintances alike.
My family and I have been enjoying the enriching conversations that have come from reading the Can I ask a question? book together. We have have also commented multiple times that the author is wise beyond her years. What a brilliant, bite-sized book! I love that it slips easily into my purse to come along with us to dinner out. It’s been a really nice way to facilitate deeper, more interesting conversations beyond the standard day-to-day exchanges. Highly recommend!
Helped my daughter (16yo) and I become closer with open honest communication.
At a game night with our friends, we brought out the book and heard so many silly, vulnerable, and meaningful stories from our friends that the book inspired. Love it!
As an introvert I love this book to get to talk to people around me about something other than small talk. Love the size too!
Surprisingly thoughtful questions that deserve more than off-the-cuff responses. My visiting college-age niece and I had an enlightening car ride trading questions and answers. Before she left the next day, I offered her the book. She happily accepted and said she would share it with her boyfriend of five years. There are so many intriguing thought starters that she knows will lead to deeper conversations.
The question about loved and avoided traditions was great with grandparents visiting. It was fun to learn the things they did as kids especially the stuff they tried to avoid. Some things never change. Kids are kids
I learned about this book when I listened to a Freakonomics Radio podcast called “People I Mostly Admire”, Episode 46. The author was being interviewed by the podcast host and they discussed a sampling of the questions covered in the book. At one point the podcast host noted “there is something about the cues that the questions you’ve developed create, that get people talking in a way that we otherwise wouldn’t.” I agree with the host’s comment wholeheartedly. I purchased two copies of the book, one for each of my teenage sons who are on the introverted side of the social interaction spectrum. The thing is, I haven’t given them the books yet. I’ve been asking them the questions first, and will pass along the books soon. We’ve had some great conversations that were generated by the questions that the book poses. Well done!
im surprised for the questions, because i wouldve never thought of coming up with those questions myself. i am VERY satisfied with my perchase, and the book came smaller than expected, but very cute and can fit in my bags. i thought the price was too much, but it was DEFINETLY worth the money. i am glad i bought this book, no regrets. i am so excited to read this to my fellow.
If you are both sincere and open, this mini-book will be a great tool for bonding. Would love to try with a date when the situation presents itself
I have used this book several times with my boyfriend. A couple times in the beginning of our relationship (only a month in) and a couple times around 6months in. It’s great for people you already think you know well and people you barely know at all. It really helped me and my boyfriend connect on a deeper level. He’s not the most naturally talkative person, so this book has been so helpful! I lead small groups for work and I can’t wait to use this book for some get-to-know you questions at the beginning of group! I think it will provide conversation that isn’t just boring small talk.
My friend and I are all about interesting get-to-know-you questions, would you rathers, and hypothetical scenarios. But we ran out of creative ideas and ideas from the internet. This book is laid out so perfectly with lots of questions we had never seen before. The book itself is cute and very inviting. I can tell that lots of time and effort were put into creating it! I am super excited to use this book with him and with all the other people in my life! Saying "Hey I have this book of questions, how about we go through a couple while we wait for our food?" is an easy way to introduce the idea to people that you wouldn't normally ask fun or deep questions to.
