The book spent more than five years on the bestseller lists and ignited a global conversation, while Strengths Finder helped millions to discover their Top 5 talents. In StrengthsFinder 2.0, Gallup unveils the new and improved version of its popular assessment, language of 34 themes, and much more. Loaded with hundreds of strategies for applying your strengths, this new book and accompanying website will change the way you look at yourself - and the world around you - forever. While you can read this book in one sitting, you ll use it as a reference forever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid, and evidence based 18 Jan 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Thoroughly impressed. It makes a nice change to see personality tests coming from an organisation with access to really significant data. I found the summary of my strengths really useful with a number of good ideas of new things I could get involved in.

The book itself is really a glorified set of log in details for the website which hosts the test itself. Once you have logged on and done the test, you have access to all the information online and the book becomes somewhat redundant.

*Do not buy a second hand copy* as the chances are that the log in details won't work (having been used already).

2.0 out of 5 stars Could be better 31 Oct 2010
By Lez
You buy the book and get a code to access a website. On the website you can enter your code to do a 177 question 'quiz'. You are only able to do this the once and then it's fixed. This even though the book itself says 'if you take the same version of StrengthsFinder again a few months later, it is not unusual for a couple of your top five themes to change.' So, you cannot then look at how strong each of your 'themes' is and cannot see how you might change over time after trying to apply some of the suggestions offered.

The book itself does give a description of the 34 themes, but the website doesn't really offer much extra. You can look at your results (but never retake the test) and look at the 10 ideas of action (which are in the book anyway). I was hoping for a lot more to be available on the website. More ideas, more questions to ask yourself, more ways to actually *use* the ideas and suggestions given.

Strikes me that this is little more a promotional tool to then pay huge amounts of money for further consultation.

Overall, not a complete waste of time, but I'm not sure it's entirely worth the money.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY SECOND HAND 18 Oct 2012
It will not work because the code is already used. Beware because they wont warn you and you will waste your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars GALLUP - Strengthsfinders 15 Nov 2010
We've rolled Strengthsfinders out throughout our company and it's been quite useful. However beware there is an issue whereby lot's of the unique codes in the back were duplicated. At first GALLUP were very helpful when I was querying this and asking for new codes, then they got suspicious and refused to send me any new ones without lengthy conversations and debates. Not good as we are a very large FTSE 35 Company and clearly have alot of managers to give this book to!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 25 Oct 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have just completed the online test, and initially was surprised at my top 5 strengths. However, on reading the book, I can honestly say it was incredibly accurate! A really great business tool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strengthsfinder 2.0 7 Mar 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Was a bit sceptical about this when my ex-husband recommended it to my daughter. However, have since viewed results from my daughter and my elder son, and they are remarkably accurate - I can completely recognize them from the 5 main threads of their strengths. Doesn't necessarily help with their career choices though! However, having been in the 'wrong job' for most of my life, I do think it's important to recognize and go with your own inner self and your own strengths.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful easy read 23 July 2009
This has been a useful little book. It takes a positive approach on one's capacity rather than focusing on what your're lacking. That is refreshing. The online test was good although the time limit became a little irritating as I was not alone in the room and missed several questions because I was interrupted. Lock yourself away before starting the test!

5.0 out of 5 stars must read if you don't know your strengths 28 Nov 2009
By Alireza
the book's value is in it's password that lets you give the personality test that the Galup's institute has developed. It tells you which are your top 5 strength areas among 37 themes. I did the test, and was more than impressed. The test was so accurate that I was puzzled. Everything was true about me, especially the first 2 areas.

I bought this book 1 year ago. This book gave me guidelines for making choices regarding my career. so if you are not sure of your best area, and what you can excel at definitely buy this book and try the test.

I am buying 2 more for 2 friends :)
