I've had a few people tell me they really enjoyed listening to A MORE BEAUTIFUL QUESTION, and now here's proof that the audio version has something special: AMBQ is one of 5 #Audies2015 nominees for best Business/Educational @Audible#audiobook of the year. You can listen to a sample of it here: http://adbl.co/17tFjoA

Story
Tagline
Author & speaker: innovation, creativity, and questioning
Introduction
My latest book is about the power of questioning, called A More Beautiful Question (Bloomsbury). A previous book was Glimmer: How Design Can Transform Your Life, and Maybe Even the World (Penguin Press), (retitled CAD Monkeys, Dinosaur Babies, and T-Shaped People for the U.S. paperback). In 2011, I published a novel about Detroit's Purple Gang, called The Purples. I also run an executive-level editorial service called WBLK Media.
