When a friend encouraged me to look deeper into what it was the book is describing and the assessment is measuring, I was skeptical and discouraged. I have since had a complete turnaround. The 9 options represent one's talents and tendencies at a deeper level than does the StrengthsFinder assessment, which I'm also deeply indebted to, and the more time I spend with the book, the more impressed I become. While the concepts are not a quick study, these 9 possibilities for one's "edge" draw from a deeper pool.
For those who really want to increase understanding of the differences in people, this book is a valuable, valuable tool. Those who want a better, richer context for understanding what it is that makes them valuable, I recommend making the book your main resource for learning for the next month or so. Your StrengthsFinder strengths will take on new dimension within this StandOut context.
Given that the majority of the book is given over to descriptors of the profiles this was especially disappointing.
On the positive, if you have never taken any tests and have little self knowledge this may give you the answers you are looking for. If you do not know how to express your person in an interview or unexperienced in team work and management it may give you some hints. But do not expect too much: the hints that are relevant to you fit easily onto 2 pages.
On the negative, what a waste of time and money.
