Don’t Ask Stupid Questions – Review

by Stephen Mills on March 14, 2009


On a plane ride yesterday I took the opportunity to read some e-books I had been wanting to read.  I started one I was really excited about, got to page 29 and was told I was not allowed to continue without completing an exercise.  I was so disappointed because I was really getting into it.  I could tell it was going to be good stuff.  It would have to wait.

So I picked up another one I had printed out.  It is called Don’t Ask Stupid Questions – There Are No Stupid Questions by Tim Brownson (click on the link for the book on the right when you get to the review page).  In his book, Tim gives you 41 life lessons.  I was hooked when I read #2 Who is the Most Important Person in the World to You? I read the whole book on the plane ride, but I will read it again and again.  I think I might take one lesson per week and concentrate on making that week’s lesson a permanent habit.

Tim’s e-book is $9.99 but each lesson is worth that and you get 41 of them!  That works out to $0.24 per lesson.  Are you kidding me?  Each lesson is worth $99.  This book is very easy to read and Tim sprinkles his unique humor throughout the whole book.  I love his writing style.  Each lesson is barely over a page and Tim asks you a question to ponder and act upon at the end of each lesson.

I could go on and on about this, but I would be doing violence to Tim’s style in his book.  Just buy it and put it into practice.  Don’t just read it and go back to doing the same thing.  I’ll make you a deal.  If you read this book and can honestly say it wasn’t worth it I’ll give you your money back.  How about that?  I get nothing out of you buying it except the satisfaction of knowing I helped Tim help you make a difference in yourself.  And that is something I take great pleasure in knowing.  You will be a better person and the world will be just a little bit better place as a result.

Let me know what you think.

I really enjoyed “Don’t Ask Stupid Questions”, too. I think Tim’s advice is spot on and I really like his conversational writing style. You still have to do the work, but this gives you a framework for starting.

Great review!

Thanks Tracy. Yes you do have to do the work. Nothing happens for you without action from you. Lesson #20 – Whatever you do, do something. 🙂
