Sally Haldorson at 800-CEO-Read did a really nice job of packaging their April "Thinker in Residence" series around A More Beautiful Question. Here's a link to Part 3 where I talk about my biz book influences, which include authors like Adam Grant  +Daniel Pink, Bob Sutton, and +Charles Duhigg. http://bit.ly/1gNsHWT

Story
Tagline
Author & speaker: innovation, creativity, and questioning
Introduction
Am publishing a new book 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.
