Question of the Day

by Al Katkowsky

Perfect for spending time with friends, family or even co-workers, Question of the Day is designed to help people explore a variety of topics that challenge them to think, be brutally honest, and form perhaps previously unstated opinions. Using these questions is fun, enlightening, surprising and revealing'ideal as an ice breaker among willing acquaintances or as a source of deeper conversation among old friends. It's fun, but also challenging and the subtitle is meant to reflect that. Questions are ranked on a scale from 'light' to 'heavy' indicating the introspection, honesty, and even deep thinking required by the individuals the question is posed to. The questions can incite funny answers, embarrassment'even an unwillingness to answer. But every reaction to a question reveals to the group insights into the beliefs of the people answering. "Question of the Dayreads and plays like a game. The result is a much more stimulating version of The Book of Questions. ' -- Glenn Taverna, general manager, Border Books and Music Westbury, NY
