Customer Review

on February 19, 2007
If you've read Buckingham's books (esp. "Now, Discover Your Strengths") it's hard to say there's much more here. In fact, there isn't. The stickers you can paste on the front of the book and printable door hangers are silly gimmicks, and there is very little new information on your themes.

Is the test really any better or more accurate? It's impossible to say. The book says in most cases you'll end up with four of the same five themes.

If you take the test again and get one or two "new" top 5 themes, you've gained some insight I suppose. This begs the question, why doesn't Gallup rank your strengths 1 through 34 instead of giving you a glimpse of the top 5 only?

This is merely an extra entry fee to move the curtain only slightly. If you're a strengths-based fanatic like me, go ahead and buy it. But be warned, Rath is no Buckingham. "Now Discover" is a vastly superior book.
