Here's how the book is set up:
StrengthsFinder: The Next Generation
(A short introduction explaining the need for the enhanced edition of the test based upon new thinking and research in strengths psychology)
I: Finding Your Strengths
(A 30-page overview of strengths psychology and how the Gallup system works)
II: Applying Your Strengths
(150 pages outlining each of the 34 themes including what people with that strength look like, how to manage them, and ideas for action if you have that strength).
(If you haven't taken it before, the code to take the test is provided in a packet inside the book. You actually have to buy the book to take the test)
Emotional Intelligence 2.0 is another book I really enjoyed that follows the SF 2.0 format. Obviously, that test measures emotional intelligence (EQ), but Emotional Intelligence 2.0 has a unique format where the test tells you which of the book's 66 strategies will increase your EQ the most.
Thought #1: "What a Brilliant Idea!"
As an entrepreneur, I can readily appreciate that this is the first book I've ever come across where the author ensures that:
a. You provide them with your email address, name, demographic info (such as age, gender, zip code, birthplace, etc)
b. Each and every reader must purchase the book new at an inflated price, because each book contains a unique code that can only be used once for their online test. In other words, you can't share the book with others as the book itself has no value. So don't plan on being able to get this from the library, lending to your family/friends, etc.
c. You really should think of the book cost as payment for an online personality test -- the kind that you normally wouldn't bother doing even if it were free.
Thought #2: "What a Total Waste of Money."
a. Firstly, I found the structure of the quiz itself to be fairly annoying. For instance, each question in the quiz asks you to rate two self-descriptions. However, many of these questions are not dichotomies. For instance, one question may be:
"Which characteristic to you most strongly identify with: (a) Motivating People, or (b) Encouraging People?"
Sorry, I've forgotten the exact questions now...)
b. Secondly, the actual results of the test are useless. After taking the online personality test, you are presented with a list of 5 "Strengths", each accompanied with a checklist of about 10 fairly obvious action items.Read more ›
The book is merely a reference for the strengths that an online assessment helps you identify, along with strengths that others may have and how you might identify these in people to work better in teams together. The strengths identification is worthwhile, but only if you buy the print version (otherwise you don't get a code and can't take the test!)
I originally bought the hardcopy of the book a few years ago and took the test, and then my girlfriend and I were recently reading over my assessment. Wanting her to take the test too, I searched the Gallup website in order to purchase another code. Ridiculously, the only way that it seems that one can take the test is by purchasing another (hardcopy) book to get a new code. Not wanting to uselessly own two of the exact same hardcopy book on my shelf, and before I knew, I paid $14 for the Kindle version just to get a new code. I would be happy to pay $14 just for the StrengthsFinder assessment tool for my girlfriend.
As said, it turns out that the Kindle version doesn't contain a new code. I'm basically asking Gallup to take my money in any which way that doesn't include buying and shipping me the same useless hardcopy book again.
To be fair I'd recommend the hardcopy book and taking the test once, but not buying the Kindle version, or owning the hardcopy twice.
It's been around for years and I've seen many people with complaints about not being able to purchase just a code. That's pretty lame.

Very interesting quiz to determine your strengths. I found it helpful. My girlfriend's boss wanted her to take this quiz when she was hired, which I think is a great idea. Read morePublished 14 hours ago by Amazon Customer
To be fare I'm probably more irritated that this was required for a class of mine. It was useless to me. I already knew what my strengths are and what kind of leader I am. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Michell Durrin
