Assessment:

Idea: Solin pens a clear, prescriptive nonfiction book focused on how asking the right questions and listening to the answers can lead to better problem solving. 

Prose: The writing is abundantly clear and filled with warmth. 

Originality:  The author's suggestion that success and happiness have much to do with how we listen to, communicate with, and validate others, is at once intuitive and entirely novel. Solin's approach to self-improvement is wise, compassionate, and necessary, while many of the suggestions made (sometimes high self-confidence can be a detriment), are enlightening.

Character/Execution: Through its unique approach and welcoming tone, Solin will readily connect with readers--effectively practicing what he preaches. While the work presents an intriguing framing concept and actionable tools for readers, it may benefit from updated references and sources in order to make it more contemporary and immediate.

Blurb: This engaging book is an encouraging, enthusiastic guide to gaining admiration, business--and happiness--by not just asking questions, but asking the right questions.
