Book Review, QBQ! The Question Behind the Question

Cliff Note: This review was posted yesterday on Amazon. John G. Miller, the author, was very impressed with this review that he posted  links to it across social media.

John G. Miller, Author of QBQ! The Question Behind the Question 
These days, it seems that we are looking for a scapegoat to conveniently blame all our life's problems on. Almost seems like being a victim is in fashion. We cannot do our jobs because we don't have the materials to do so. We ask why we don't have the resources to improve our lives. John Miller says quit asking "Why can't they....?" and start asking "How can I...? "

"QBQ! The Question Behind the Question" is a classic book on personal accountability. John helps us to frame the questions to help us in our personal and professional lives. From the server who sent his manager to the corner store to get John his beverage of choice to the disabled man that John and his family encountered gathering the papers that flew out of his pick up, we get example after example of the QBQ in action.

John G. Miller continuously drives home the point that when you point a finger at someone, you are pointing three back at yourself .

In these days of soundbites and 140 character tweets,QBQ is a very refreshing quick read. It only takes a little over an hour to read,but this will be a very profitable hour because it will pay off in dividends.

If your life and career has you blue
You need to buy QBQ
When you're faced with a task
It tells what to ask
In helping you decide what to do

John posted on both Linkedin and Twitterthat this was the perfect QBQ poem.
