This is the eBook version of the printed book. The questions are designed to get you thinking and (in the print edition) drawing and writing with room on each spread to fill in the blanks and jot down ideas. If you are an ebook kind of person we suggest you jot down your thoughts in a separate notebook. The secret to creative success lies not in knowing the right answers, but in knowing how to ask the right questions-and this little book is full of them! A veritable therapy session on paper, 344 Questions is composed entirely of questions designed to help you determine where you are in your life and career, where you want to be, and how to get there. Hopefully, you´ll also laugh along the way. Each spread in this colorful, pocket-sized book contains a series of several questions illustrated in Stefan Bucher´s unique, whimsical, hand-lettered style. The questions are designed to get you thinking and drawing and writing with room on each spread to fill in the blanks and jot down ideas. Sample questions include: Can you name 10 things that reliably stress you out? Do you need 10 more spaces? Was filling out lists on your list? Or the decimal system? What happens when you get stressed out? Do you think stress is heroic? Can you please convince me that that´s really stupid? In addition to the questions provided by Bucher, the book features questions from creative celebrities who share some of the questions they were asked on the way to success, or, in some cases, the questions they wish they had been asked. The talented group of writers, musicians, and artists contributing to the book include: Jed Alger Judd Apatow Marian Bantjes Ken Carbone Tim Carvell Deanne Cheuk Wayne Coyne Russell Davies Arem Duplessis Dave Eggers Karen Fowler Ze Frank Jona Frank Jill Greenberg Stanley Hainsworth Peter Hannan Debbie Millman Rick Morris Seth Morris Christoph Niemann David Norland Patton Oswalt Martha Rich Stefan Sagmeister Meredith Scardino J.J.

THE No.1 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER The world-famous cosmologist and #1 bestselling author of A Brief History of Time leaves us with his final thoughts on the universe´s biggest questions in this brilliant posthumous work. Is there a God? How did it all begin? Can we predict the future? What is inside a black hole? Is there other intelligent life in the universe? Will artificial intelligence outsmart us? How do we shape the future? Will we survive on Earth? Should we colonise space? Is time travel possible? Throughout his extraordinary career, Stephen Hawking expanded our understanding of the universe and unravelled some of its greatest mysteries. But even as his theoretical work on black holes, imaginary time and multiple histories took his mind to the furthest reaches of space, Hawking always believed that science could also be used to fix the problems on our planet. And now, as we face potentially catastrophic changes here on Earth - from climate change to dwindling natural resources to the threat of artificial super-intelligence - Stephen Hawking turns his attention to the most urgent issues for humankind. Wide-ranging, intellectually stimulating, passionately argued, and infused with his characteristic humour, BRIEF ANSWERS TO THE BIG QUESTIONS, the final book from one of the greatest minds in history, is a personal view on the challenges we face as a human race, and where we, as a planet, are heading next.

All researchers want to produce interesting and influential theories. A key step in all theory development is formulating innovative research questions that will result in interesting and significant research. Traditional textbooks on research methods tend to ignore, or gloss over, actual ways of constructing research questions. In this text, Alvesson and Sandberg develop a problematization methodology for identifying and challenging the assumptions underlying existing theories and for generating research questions that can lead to more interesting and influential theories, using examples from across the social sciences. Established methods of generating research questions in the social sciences tend to focus on ´gap-spotting´, which means that existing literature remains largely unchallenged. The authors show the dangers of conventional approaches, providing detailed ideas for how one can work through such problems and formulate novel research questions that challenge existing theories and produce more imaginative empirical studies. Constructing Research Questions is essential reading for any researcher looking to formulate research questions that are interesting and novel.
