Publisher's Summary

This is a scientific-based success methodology distilled down into its one easy and effective method. This simple method utilizes your own self-talk to create a more powerful and effective internal dialogue.

The Magic Question might sound too good to be true, but it's based on sound brain science and advanced linguistics. Best of all...it's easy to listen to and filled with fun stories. It has nothing to do with more effort, visualization, or even goal setting but can serve to powerfully enhance any of those things. It's about shifting your mind in the direction of happiness, success, and optimism...using the power of one question a day.

This system will quiet the negative voices that cause you to feel stuck and fearful while profoundly increasing the speed at which you manifest goals and desires. It's so easy that kids can do it.

Bart Baggett, internationally known speaker and thought leader in the fields of NLP and forensic handwriting analysis, explains one of his favorite personal success habits he developed over the past 20 years as a teacher and a person who wanted more. If you are a fan of neurolinguistic programing or other self-help tools, this one technique will enhance and increase the speed at which you see results. It is startlingly effective and so simple to learn that you could teach your children. Best of all...it's even fun to practice!

Start today finding your magic question and see the results yourself!

    Story
    "Great Book to Multiply Success & Make You Happier"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Magic Question to be better than the print version?

    Hmm, I only have the Audible version. It's allowed me to listen while I drive (and while I'm doing mindless-work). I love it! It's motivating me and moving me forward; planting new and useful questions in most-everything that I do.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I'm my favorite character because Bart has made me the starring character of my life (and will do the same for you). Bart- the narrator and author- is my second-favorite character!


    What does Bart A Baggett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    You can listen and "read" the book while doing other stuff. You can get both motivated and get some good brain-storming done while driving to meetings, work etc.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Magic Question?

    There are far-better (more-fun, more-effective and happier) ways to approach my business and personal life through questions, and it's helping to turn my life around.


    Any additional comments?

    Surprisingly- This is the "Magic Book" that is helping to turn my life around. The premise of the book- that there's a "magic question" that helps you to get what you want in half the time- seems simplistic and overstating in its power. However, from my experience with the book, it's doing that and then far more than that. It's helping me to get "unstuck" in couple of areas in my life (both professional and personal).

    My life is pretty good overall, but was a little sluggish in some areas.

    Remember how it feels when you first get a new computer (once it's fully set up)- how FAST, EFFICIENT and EASY everything seems? Due to a faster processor, a more-effective operating system and new-spangled software, you can now do stuff at twice the speed as before, and, can do stuff you never knew you could do with your new computer... THAT is the way I feel as I'm reading through and applying what Bart suggests to my life and business. By my second read-through (I anticipate more), my days feel better and more-hopeful; my business is moving forward and an area in my personal life that seemed a little grim now feels hopeful and exciting.

    I highly recommend that anybody and everybody read this book!
    Thanks Bart!

    "Not a lot of wisdom here"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I am not sure who would enjoy it more, that it is strange leading question. I can only write of my experience. I found myself a bit depressed listening to this. I do think it's a good idea to ask the right questions in a way that primes your brain to start looking for the right answer.. But the rest of it is just depressing. I realize after that there is a premise to the book that I ultimately found depressing. I think it reminded me a bit of the cocaine fueled 80's a bit. If you dig deep it's still all surface.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Chapter 11 is good, it helps you form a question that that your brain will accept.


    Which character – as performed by Bart A Baggett – was your favorite?

    Chapter 11, Baggett is a good narrator.


    What character would you cut from The Magic Question?

    The salesman Baggett. The end felt like a sales pitch for his seminars etc. I then looked him up on the web which was a mistake, as there's some not so nice things written about him on the web.

    "Great info. obvious marketing tool."

    this was a great book that provided a much needed mental shift for me and I am sure would be the same for anyone. however, just be aware that this is also intended to promote the author and his other work which will show up at the end of the book so don't be alarmed.

    "loved it"

    This book was easy to listen to and had a lot of great tips. Although they were very simple techniques immediately I did feel like asking questions appropriately did change how I felt quite significantly.

    "Simple yet Extraordinary & Transformative"

    This book is a real gem! I listened to it while I was traveling and really enjoyed the book. I immediately started doing the exercises and could see the benefit right away. Bart is a genius! Do yourself a favor and read this book and do the exercises and experience true transformation.

    "Ask the magic question—get the magic answer"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it's eye opening and very interesting. I would recommend this to anyone who has tried to use writing affirmations down as a self development tool, but found it to be ineffective in creating the positive change in their lives that they expected.


    Any additional comments?

    It all starts with asking the right question—the MAGIC question!

    You know how they say, if you're looking for something, you'll find it?
    Usually referring to a situation where one is skeptical/reluctant about something & will purposefully search for something negative to point out, in order to justify their reluctance. That person will almost always find SOME sort of flaw, if they are indeed looking for one—sometimes even exaggerating the truth to prove their case.

    The same concept is discussed in this book, but applied to help oneself search for the good in life, an idea for business, the best way to handle a situation, how to make your beloved smile more... The possibilities are endless!

    The trick is to ask a question in the first place in order to stumble upon such new inspirations, fascinating activities, or simply reasons to love life more and smile often!

    If you're not looking for such things—though they exist in the world just awaiting your notice—you will never know, say, the freedom of being out of debt simply because you never asked yourself how in the world that might be possible for you to achieve.

    On the other hand, just as someone might look for a flaw in something, and their brain works overtime to create some reason not to like it, even if it's a stretch.. Your brain can be harnessed in a positive & productive manner to work overtime, using stretches of your imagination, in order to come up with new ideas—perhaps, THE IDEA—as an answer to a question you asked yourself, that ends up changing your life!

    Yes, you may find that you come up with some crazy solutions to the puzzles you proposition yourself... But they may be crazy enough that they just might work!

    I loved this book and would highly recommend it to anyone—especially those who may have tried methods such as writing affirmations and encouraging words as a self help tool, and found that they soon became blurred into the unnoticed everyday background of life. This book explains why that happens, and suggests a more effective alternative to written affirmations, but achieves the same intended goal, with even better results!

    "Good Info"

    Narrated by the author, His natural speaking cadence is way too fast. Listen would have been better had he intentionally allowed his speech. Really 2.5 stsrs - he repeats himself a lot but every now and then a good point is made. Very so-so.

    Lots of good info, very well read. Not a lot of fluff. Would definitely recommend even if you've read other NLP type books.
