Overview

Any Questions? is both a philosophical and inspirational book. It is unorthodox in style, perhaps even unique, though it is similar in content to some classic works like the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, the Essays of Michel de Montaigne, and the Reflections of Schopenhauer. Written entirely in the second person, the book encourages readers to enter into a dialog with their own assumptions, opinions, and beliefs about what it means to live well. The goal of this dialog is to create a path to a richer and more fulfilling life by posing challenging questions and leaving the readers to search for answers. Examining traditional notions of piety, dignity, integrity, and courage, Any Questions? may be read as a spirited personal exploration, or it may be opened anywhere and mined for thoughtful questions and engaging ideas. There are allusions to major philosophers and thinkers, but no names, no citations, no footnotes, and no dates. It is written for anyone looking for answers to life’s most fundamental questions, and is reinforced by what open-minded thinkers throughout history have discovered—the answers come and go but the great questions are timeless.

    "Any Questions?" is, to say the least, an appropriate

    "Any Questions?" is, to say the least, an appropriately titled exploration of human conceptions, preconceived notions, and nefarious belief systems. Composed almost exclusively of questions, the book seeks to inspire self-questioning within the reader. Major philosophical topics ranging anywhere from piety to dignity to God are examined using the author's clever questioning device. When the questions in life are more important than the answers, such a literary technique seems more than appropriate. Though the book reads quickly, it is better to contemplate the many themes slowly. Readers are encouraged, in a subtle fashion, to think deeply about self-beliefs that may tend to go unexplored in our normally hectic lives. Such self-analysis is always useful and only rarely unrewarding. The writing level is certainly comprehensible by bright high school students but perhaps more appropriate for a college or adult readership. I highly recommend "Any Questions," and hope to read more from Mark Reed.
