The What If? Book Of Questions – Book Review
I have always loved asking questions. I enjoy books that raise interesting questions to wrap the mind around. So – when I had the chance to review The What If? Book Of Questions by Miggs Burroughs, I jumped at the opportunity.
I must say – this book was nothing like I expected!
If you’re looking for a book of fun and fluffy questions to sit down and discuss with a friend – think again!
The What If? Book Of Questions To Some Of Your Most Revealing Answers On Love And Health Wealth & Happiness is a collection of seemingly simple yet surprisingly deep and often profound questions that began churning in Migg’s mind 18 years ago during the aftermath of his divorce.
At the time, Miggs’ therapist gave him a homework assignment to write down all of the questions that addressed his worse fears – you know, the kind that reflect those “what if” scenarios that run through your mind. As Miggs worked his way through that assignment, over the course of the next year, he was surprised to find his energy and focus shifting to a more positive place.
Ultimately, the questions Miggs asked began to change from questions that reflected his worse fears to questions that reflected fresh possibilities for a brighter future – and hence, this book was born!
However, the What If? Book Of Questions turned out to be an idea that was truly ahead of its time!
In 1995, Simon and Schuster rejected this book for being “very cute… (but) also very small.”
Today, size no longer matters, and the What If? Book Of Questions is creating a sensation!
Here’s what people are saying about this book:
Miggs is creative. When he attacks a problem, he does so with intelligence, insight, and humor.
They’re calling it “Outsider Wisdom”, when a non-professional like Miggs Burroughs, at age 67, writes his first book ever, on how to navigate life’s challenging risks and rewards.
What I love most about the “What if?” questions that Miggs asks is that they open doors to new opportunities that we probably haven’t thought of before.
Here are a few of my favorite questions to give you an idea of what you will find in this book:
What if you come across a dark empty page in your life? Can you find all of possibilities hiding there?
What if bad habits are just yesterday’s choices? What new habits can you choose today?
What if you only have one more day to create a positive change in your life? What are you waiting for?
The book is punctuated by charming Victorian illustrations.
The What If? Book Of Questions by Miggs Burroughs is the perfect gift for yourself and your hard-to-shop-for friends.
Enjoy this book. Use it often. It will give you much to think about!
