Item Description...
An updated version of the StrengthsFinder program developed by Gallup experts to help readers discover their distinct talents and strengths and how they can be translated into personal and career successes.

Publishers Description
Chances are, you don't. From the cradle to the cubicle, we devote more time to fixing our shortcomings than to developing our strengths.
To help people uncover their talents, Gallup introduced StrengthsFinder in the 2001 management book "Now, Discover Your Strengths." The book ignited a global conversation, while StrengthsFinder helped millions discover their top five talents.
In "StrengthsFinder 2.0," Gallup unveils the new and improved version of its popular online assessment. With hundreds of strategies for applying your strengths, "StrengthsFinder 2.0" will change the way you look at yourself -- and the world -- forever.
AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY IN "STRENGTHSFINDER 2.0" (using the access code included with each book):
The StrengthsFinder 2.0 assessment, fine-tuned to be faster and more accurate
A "Strengths Discovery and Action-Planning Guide" featuring: a customized version of your top five theme report; 50 Ideas for Action for building on your top five themes; and a strengths-based action plan for setting goals
And much more on the StrengthsFinder 2.0 website: A strengths community area; resources, activities, and discussion guides; a strengths screensaver; and a program for creating display cards of your top five themes

Online test is useless. Forget the code and buy it used.  Nov 28, 2009
A lot of people have complained that the book is no good without the code which allows you to take the online test. I would say that the opposite is true. The book is mildly interesting. The online test is poorly designed. You are better off guessing your talents than relying on the online test. It is very disappointing that the users receives no additional information after taking the online test. It just tells you your top five strengths, and reprints what is in the book. It is not worth paying $20 bucks for the code and a chance to take the test online. Pick up a used copy, read through it in an hour, and you will get all the value this has to offer.
Any science here?  Nov 26, 2009
Nice idea, but no indication of theoretical basis or where the "34 themes" come from, other than "30 years of experience and 2 million interviews" (one has to wonder about the depth and type of interview one can offer "two million people").

Even less impressive is the implicit assumption of accuracy for every test taker, with no warning that these tests are always inaccurate to a greater or lesser degree. The research link shows a test/retest reliability of .6 to .8 after 8- 12 weeks.

The website is usable, but sucks. As an OMI designer, I'm entitled to a professional opinion, complete with technical terminology. ;)

Having said all that, The test provided a partial, reasonable estimate of what I already know. For me, at this time and place, it appeared to work well, and provided a basis for interesting discussion. Given the understanding that NO test like this is "accurate", and discussion with thoughtful friends, this seems to be a useful tool. Combined with "feel good" positive psychology (which also often works) makes for a great marketing racket... Congrats, Gallup, you'll make a ton of money on this.
Goof buy, good investment!  Nov 20, 2009
Great book! Definitely a must read for people wanting to change career or even their personal lifestyle!
Too generic, too vague  Nov 19, 2009
I got this book from a colleague, who really wanted me to take the online test. So I entered the code from the book and answered the 180 or so questions, only to find the results to be rather useless.

The questions are of the "strongly agree-disagree" type, which is fine as long as you have a real choice. But frequently the opposites were no true opposites at all; a lot of them were rewordings of the same answer, defeating their purpose.

After filling in the test I received a top-5 of my strengths, which lean heavily on the "Barnum-effect", i.e. most people with vastly differing backgrounds will still be able to recognize themselves in the statements. This is heightened by the extremely optimistic wording; who wouldn't like to be told they are smart, critical, hard-working or creative? In that it highly resembles other personality-assessment methods, such as Myers-Briggs or Enneagrams, which are similarly vague and unhelpful.

I read some of the other descriptions in the book and found that a lot of them fit me even better than the five I got. I especially wonder why "analytical" is not in my top-5, since I am well-known for my tendency to debunk arguments, always trying to find the truth behind statements--much as I am doing right now.

The worst part, of course, is that you have to cough up $550 to get the results of the other 29 strengths, which labels this whole operation as a scheme to lift your purse.

In short: don't waste your time and money.

Strengthfinder is excellent  Nov 16, 2009
Over 120 people in our church have used this. It has been an eye opener for so many. Really really helpful for people to discover, name and work with their talents. Very simple to use.
