Reviews

"In these pages Jim Ryan distills several important questions we should all be asking ourselves-questions that promise greater clarity, compassion, wisdom, and in the end, fulfillment in our lives. Wait, What? is a welcome-and joyful-reminder that true wisdom comes from asking the right questions." -- Clayton Christensen, bestselling author of How Will You Measure Your Life? "Jim Ryan promises that asking five simple questions will bring clarity, curiosity, courage, compassion, and conviction. Why should we believe him? For one thing: he's right. Why should you care? Well, why not read the book-all in one sitting, as I did-and find out?" -- Angela Duckworth, author of GRIT: The Power of Passion and Perseverance "This compulsively readable book is that rare work that will appeal to both the secular and religious reader alike-in fact, any reader interested in hearing wise advice from a charming (and funny) author, and, most of all, leading a meaningful life." -- James Martin, SJ, author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything "This beautiful book describes how to ask questions of others and ourselves that lead to a deep understanding about what matters most in life. The lessons are timeless, providing powerful insights that are relevant in all parts of our lives." -- Tina Seelig, bestselling author of What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20, inGenius, and Insight Out
