It's not really 10 powerful tools, more like one question to ask yourself when you're feeling upset, mad, angry, pissed off, cheated or any of the above. This book gets to the root of 'why' you feel that way and usually it's the assumptions we're making. This book teaches you to ask yourself "do I really feel the way I do?" and "are the other person's intentions really as bad as I think they are?" Once you start looking at the situation from their shoes it often allows you to see what the problem actually is.
This book literally changed how I viewed many relationships and has helped me prepare for the most stressful meetings. A must read for anyone who talks to people in their day to day.

This is by far the best non fiction and advice/self-help kinds of book that I have ever read. It is so simple in concept that it is absolutely shocking. I strongly recommend this book to anyone with any types of communication troubles, or even marriage troubles. The concept of taking control of one's own mind, and direct it in the right path by asking the right types of questions, will lead to a definitely better life and successful life. I wish I had this book a long time ago but it is not too late. An absolutely valuable book that is a must for anyone's own library. Bravo to Marilee Adams. A wonderful and transformative educator.

Great easy to read book. The fable spoke to my experiences and really supports the use of the "Choice Map" tool presented in the book. I loved learning that most of us initially enter on the "judger" path and that this is OK as long as we take a minute to recognize what we are doing and then turn back to walk the "learner" path. The specific "learner" questions really help focussing on what's important and guide towards a positive contructive path forward, as opposed to ending up into the muddy "judger pit". I have shared the tool with my team and I have the choice map pinned in plain view on the wall in my office as a constant reminder to step back and reflect on possibilities.

Amazing book, first of it's kind that I couldn't stop reading. Read it from cover to cover in one sitting and have been using the simple tips and techniques at work with my team and I am already noticing the difference. I have sang the praises of this book to anyone who will listen. If you are looking to get more out of the relationships with your team, get powerful results and ultimately the trust and respect of your team, this is the book for you.

This is a fantastic read, written in plain language with easy to follow instructions on how to shift your thinking to become more aware and receptive to the learner mentality. "Question thinking" opens our minds to imagine possibilities and provides strategies to invite others to do the same, fostering a healthy team environment. The scenarios are relatable and applicable to both personal and professional facets of life. By simply asking questions we can make positive life changes!
