By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 3 Feb. 2010
Format: Hardcover
"Therefore the strong people will glorify You;" -- Isaiah 25:3

I ordered this book thinking that my wife and daughter would be thrilled to find out how to find their strongest lives. I left it hanging around where they tend to pick up books I want them to find and read. That didn't work. Then, I asked each of them if they would like to read it. My daughter turned up her nose and my wife said she's take a quick look. After six minutes my wife commented, "There's not much there."

Although this is a book-length self-help book, my advice to men would be not to buy it for women. They'll buy it for themselves if they want to read it.

Assuming that all men have stopped reading the review by now, let me address women. If you have read Marcus Buckingham's book, Find Your Strongest Life, you probably won't feel that this book adds very much other than some anecdotes. Take a peek at the library or while browsing at the bookstore before buying.

If you haven't read that book, let me ask you a question to help you decide if this book is for you: How happy are you with your life on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being as happy as you can imagine?

If you answer seven or higher, you are average or above in happiness and much of this advice won't help too much.

If you answer four or lower and loathe either your job or your family life, this is your book. Go for it.

The book is structured around an experience that the author had in counseling 30 women who had achieved so-called success in life, but were dissatisfied.

It begins with 10 myths, which I paraphrase to shorten and for clarity:

1. When women have more opportunities, they are happier.
2. Happiness for women increases with age.

Well, I was a little sceptical when a friend showed me the book and said I HAD to read it. Im not particularly fond of American style authors, toothpaste smiles on a cover and so on. But this book pleasantly surprised me!
Women and men are wired differently and it has been a pleasure to see a woman's life and possible troubling thoughts through the eyes of a man. Men do look differently at the world than we, women, do. It has brought me some nice eye-openers that I also use for my clients in coaching as to what makes you happy.

Read and judge for yourself, it is fun to look at things from another perspective!

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong Praise for Marcus Buckingham 9 Nov. 2016
By D. Minto - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is the gift that keeps on giving. I keep going back to it to find more juicy nuggets of inspiration. I especially enjoyed the section on discovering your strength roles. That was liberating for me. I no longer take on roles that do not reflect my strengths. This book is a game-changer for women who are trying to do it all and have it all and find themselves exhausted and unhappy in the process. I highly recommend it to all women on the journey to find "fullness" instead of balance, as Mr. Buckingham puts it. Such an awesome book!
5.0 out of 5 stars Strategies For Becoming Strong At Work & In Life 16 Jan. 2013
By Dr. Christi Hegstad - Published on

As a researcher, I am particular when it comes to nonfiction books and want them to be well-grounded and rich with substance. As a coach, I long for the research to translate into practical, usable tips that anyone can apply. And as an avid reader, I love stories that simultaneously entertain and enlighten. With Find Your Strongest Life, Marcus Buckingham satisfied all 3 of these needs!

I first read Find Your Strongest Life shortly after its publication in 2009 and have used it in my work ever since. I often have clients take the Strong Life Test when we first begin working together, and so far nearly all have said the results were spot-on. And, unlike many other assessments, the Strong Life Test (as well as StrengthsFinder and those found in Buckingham's other books) points people in the direction of their *strengths* - qualities that they can leverage and enhance, rather than labels that might limit or inhibit.

Find Your Strongest Life was also an excellent book choice for the professional women's success club that I facilitate. It provides ample discussion points, activities, and "I can relate to that!" stories that kept our group positive and moving forward. We highlighted some of the book's points in fun ways, too - such as bringing sets of juggling balls to the meeting where we discussed "Catch-And-Cradle." The book made it easy to incorporate these types of activities into the group - and made them memorable, too!

One of the greatest takeaways of this resource lies in the "SIGNs" of a strong life. If you feel successful, instinctively look forward to tomorrow, continually grow and learn, and fulfill your needs, chances are you live and work in favor of your strengths. By leaning towards optimism, growth, and the activities that light you up, you can enhance your productivity, increase your sense of purpose, use your time more wisely, and live and work with joyful success. Find Your Strongest Life helps readers do this with authenticity and confidence which, in the long run, serves us all!

5.0 out of 5 stars changed my life 10 Mar. 2010
By Love to read - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book changed my life. It subtly seeped into my mind and I started making small changes in my choices throughout the day. It was just effortless really but has made a huge difference in how satisfied I feel. It has nothing to do with stupid things like positive thinking and not even with things like affirmations. It's more practical than that and you get results instantly. He pretty much shows you exactly what matters and what doesn't. This book is what I've been searching for for a while because affirmations and putting a positive spin on a miserable situation never really did much for me- it just feels fake. This book helps you to get more self and that is why you end up satisfied. You find the essence of who you are and you love it! I am so happy that I found this book because I was in a low point in life and it helped me out of it. I'm grateful to the author, who seems to have spent his life really caring about and helping people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful 31 May 2011

If I read a book like this and can take away one or two things to improve my life, I feel that this is a really good book -- this is true of this book. I read one of Marcus Buckingham's other books and enjoyed it, but I couldn't really apply it to my life. On the other hand, this book written for women, spoke to me and I was able to apply his suggestions to my life. Since reading this book, I feel stronger and more positive. I keep it next to my bed so I can reread certain parts to keep me on track. A definite good read.
5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a must! 16 Mar. 2014
By Pamela Forbes - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful tool to help a woman find what makes her energized and joyful and how she can bend her activities in that direction for a more deeply satisfying life. The book helped me pull together a portfolio defense for my PhD that depicted who I had become as a result of my studies. This book is a must for any woman seeking to live her fullest life.
