Book Review: The What if? Book of Questions by Miggs Burroughs

"What if the most important moment in your life is this one? Can you handle the power it gives you to choose how you will spend the next one?" Thus begins The What if? Book of Questions to some of your most revealing answers on love and health, wealth and happiness by Miggs Burroughs. This little book is full of provocative and thoughtful questions that will really make you think.

It's a small book ~ less than 5x7 in size and only 193 pages. Each two-page spread has a question on the left and an image (clipart) on the right. It's simple really, but the thoughts it provokes are deep. "What if you wake up with no country, job, partner or religion? Who are you without these things?" Think about it. Those are the things that many of us use to define ourselves. Who are we really without these things? It makes you think.

The What if? Book of Questions would make a great selection for a small group discussion. Pick a few questions and talk through them. It would be quite interesting to hear a variety of responses to some of these questions. It's certainly not for everyone; my husband didn't get the point of it at all! And it's not something to sit down and read all in one sitting. But I think it's an interesting book that I will return to often. I'm hoping to even use it next time I get together with friends, to see how we all react to some of these questions.

My Rating: 4/5
