This is what enables people to foster breakthroughs and achieve the results, experiences, and relationships they desire.
The book takes us step by step through the 12 powerful tools of Question Thinking™ and their practical application in real life. The Users Guide and Choice Map™ guide us in creating questions that produce highly effective results in every area of our lives.

In the fable book, the hero, Ben, undergoes a transformative journey by using Question Thinking™ and this workbook leads the reader through a personal and similar transformational journey.
