In this powerful and innovative book of poetry and wisdom, award-winning spoken-word poet, songwriter, and performer IN-Q inspires us to question everything we know and see around us and inside us, to discover what matters most.
“Poetry celebrates vulnerability as a strength rather than a weakness. It is a timeless form of storytelling that inspires connection and allows the audience to feel less alone. Experiencing ourselves through another person’s story creates empathy. And empathy is what the world needs most right now.”—IN-Q
Raised by a single mother in Los Angeles, Adam Schmalholz, known as IN-Q—In Question— discovered his love for poetry through hip-hop. At nineteen, he started performing at Da Poetry Lounge and helped build it into the largest open mic in the country. Since then, IN-Q has traveled the world capturing the hearts and minds of millions.
Inquire Within is an accessible, rhythmic, and transformative reading experience. In-Q’s poetry contemplates universal issues of love, loss, pain, forgiveness, and belief, and speaks to our complicated lives today, offering us a different way to think about ourselves and our world. Imaginative and highly visual, this beautifully designed work of art reflects IN-Q’s unique sensibility and includes inspirational call outs to challenge our hearts and minds. Profound in its simplicity, incandescent in its power, Inquire Within emotionally delivers on every page.

Shipping and Handling
Media Mail is a cost-effective way to send non time sensitive media materials through the U.S. Postal Service. While the USPS estimates that Media Mail will arrive in 2 to 10 days we have seen some packages take much longer (the USPS says that this method can, at times, take up to two months to deliver). Media Mail items are not insured and are subject to postal inspection. The USPS retains the right to open and inspect your package to check for abuse of the system such as including an item not on their approved items list. Unfortunately, when a package is inspected, it is often poorly re-packaged before delivery to the customer. Clients who choose Media Mail as a low cost option will not be provided with a replacement book if their copy arrives damaged as this method is not insurable.
Priority Mail and UPS Ground while more expensive options, these methods deliver within 2 - 6 business days. If your order is time sensitive and you want to ensure your book arrives without damages, we recommend upgrading your shipping speed to either Priority Mail or UPS Ground. Both of these methods offer package delivery insurance and we will replace your copy if it was damaged in transit. That being said, if you have participated in a limited time signed copy promotion there are very limited copies available of extra signed copies. These replacements will be provided to customers on a first come first served basis and we may not be able to replace copies for all customers if there are multiple claims for damages in transit.
