July was a slim month of reading, as half of it was spent in Sweden. Of the three books I listened to, none really warrant special mention. My highest rating of the month goes to “The Book of Beautiful Questions” by Warren Berger. His book “A More Beautiful Question” piqued my interest when I read it four years ago, and I was looking forward to an updated analysis. This book starts out strong with a discussion of the power of questioning, but then it becomes a business book – presenting over 200 questions that can be used in all manner of situation. So unlike his first book, which was about how to form a question, this book is more about using a script of memorized questions to navigate social situations.
Here is my July reading list, in the order that I listened to them:
Evolution’s Rainbow – Joan Roughgarden ***
The Book of Beautiful Questions – Warren Berger ***.5
Meet The Frugalwoods – Elizabeth Willard Thames **.5
