Here is the answer: Pick up this book and drive your friends, loved ones, neighbors, and strangers crazy with smart, tough, interesting questions. These questions marvel at the mystery of our world…Valdivia’s highly textured illustrations are mesmerizing dreamscapes in teals, vermilions, and yellows. Whether you use it as a tool for self-discovery or as a provocative way to stimulate conversation, this book constantly challenges attitudes, orals, beliefs--and it challenges you. I see many don't agree with me but I looked at questions that made strange assumptions or gave an incomplete premise, or an absurd premise and mostly shook my head.

We take pride in offering a wide selection of used books, from classics to hidden gems, ensuring there’s something for every literary palate. Compiled throughout his life and published a year after his death in 1973, Neruda's thoughtful and playful questions are well known in Latin American literature. If you were a role model to millions of children who closely followed you and your life choices, how would you change your behavior?

An update of the best selling Book of Questions, the revised book poses over 300 questions that invite people to explore the most fascinating of subjects: themselves. A lot of these questions make you understand yourself, what's important to you, your values, what drives you to do what you do, and many more things you will be able to realize about yourself after reading this book.

Elegantly designed with many bonus gatefolds, the pages include humorous inquiries such as, “Why, when expecting snow,/ do trees take off their clothes? And of course the meaning of it all— If you were handed an envelope with the date of your death inside, and you knew you could do nothing to alter your fate, would you look? Would you be happier with more control over what happens in your life or more control over your response to what happens? Of Neruda’s original questions—each of them unanswerable, all of them worth asking, crackling with some vital spark of playfulness or poignancy—seventy come ablaze amid the vibrant illustrations and fold-out delights, radiant with the colors and textures of Latin American tapestry.A lovely exploration of diversity, language, and culture, and a splendid introduction to Neruda’s works for the very young. Moments of intimate encounter—between a butterfly and a rosebush, a camel and a tortoise, or a woman and a pomegranate—transcend into cosmic moments of shared connection, with animals, plants, and humans reaching out to one another and joining in the same visual language of shape. Frequent gatefolds function as transitions between related illustrations (a peaceful mountain scene becomes a volcanic eruption, with similar changes in the flora and fauna) or as pauses between related questions (‘Why do trees hide / the splendor of their roots?

With a clear acetate jacket with striking green lettering (an homage to Neruda’s affinity for writing in green ink, which he saw as the color of hope), this edition contains six magnificent gatefold spreads that lift to reveal more questions and expanded illustrations, inviting readers into deeper and deeper reflection. Kept this on the dinner table to throw out and discuss with the fam a few times, but the questions are kind of lame and we soon lost interest. Which is more important: actual experiences , or the memories that remain when the experiences are over?

The Book of Questions may be the only publication that challenges―and even changes―the way you view the world, without offering a single opinion of its own. Book Overview: This is a book for personal growth, a tool for deepening relationships, a lively conversation starter for the family dinner table, a fun way to pass the time in the car. Originally published in 1987, The Book of Questions, a New York Times bestseller, has been completely revised and updated to incorporate the myriad cultural shifts and hot-button issues of the past twenty-five years, making it current and even more appealing. If you are looking for some unconventional questions to pose to a child in your life, consider the new picture book adaptation of Pablo Neruda’s Book of Questions.
