One question: the answers are all around if you ask the right question.

"A prudent question is one-half of wisdom," said English philosopher and statesman Francis Bacon. Indeed, there are no stupid questions, but some are smarter than others!

Atlanta talk radio host Ken Coleman has harnessed the power of the one-question interview in his new book, One Question: Life-Changing Answers from Today's Leading Voices. In it, he pulls wisdom from 36 business leaders, best-selling authors, legendary coaches, respected politicians and even some notorious figures with just a single inquiry for each.

Naturally, our question for Coleman was how he could possibly pick just one thing to ask the likes of Malcolm Gladwell, Pat Summitt, John McCain or Jack Abramoff.

"When you sit down and think about what you're going to ask, you just realize what really matters to you," Coleman says. "What do I really want to know about the most? That's what the process did. It really forced me to outline the values that mattered most to me."

--J.E.
