Format: Paperback
I have been a big fan of Buckingham's previous books and have been an advocate of his Strengths series (to the extent that I bought loads to give out as gifts!). Out of curiosity I bought this book to try out the new assessment tool. While I was totally blown away by the insightful revelation from the StrenghsFinder Profile (and was able to subsequently followed through to make a difference by developing my top strengths), disappointingly I was NOT able to relate to the outcome of my Standout assessment at all! His previous books on how to leverage outcome from the StrengthsFinder was MUCH more useful so if you are new to his books, get the 'Now, Discover Your Strengths' instead!

I got the book with high expectations, took the assessment, got my hopes dashed because I didn't agree with the results, then began a long climb back.... As a committed Marcus Buckingham mentoree, I was less easily less impressed with this book than the others.

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.

I have been a fan of Marcus Buckingham and all pioneers of working to strengths. Sadly I was disappointed in this particular book because I expected something new, given the title and branding. I found the 9 profiles to be replicas of the previously released 'Find Your Strongest Life' with a lot of text copied word for word. Even replicated questions in the diagnostic.
Given that the majority of the book is given over to descriptors of the profiles this was especially disappointing.

I have a mini library of strengths-based reference books, as this forms a main underpinning for the various types of work I do. This text adds a further dimension to Buckingham's previous work, but for anyone coming new to strengths-thinking I would recommend buying his earlier work first.

Maybe my expectations were just too high but after reading some of the PR written on it and after having had the book recommended by a business friend whom I trust the disappointment is significant.

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.
