Appreciative Living is the only comprehensive book on the principles of Appreciative Inquiry. It explains the theory and practice of asking questions that empower and direct us towards the life we want, and of creating mental pictures of the future we desire. Part I presents the theoretical foundation by diving deep into the latest consistent thinking and research in a clear, straight-forward manner. Part II focuses on practical applications, and presents a simple 3-step model and exercises for applying the principles in any situation.
