                         Product Description-StrengthsFinder 2.0
   Do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day? Chances are, you don't. All too often, our natural talents go
 untapped. 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 the first version of its online assessment, StrengthsFinder, in 2001 which
         ignited a global conversation and helped millions to discover their top five talents. In its latest national bestseller,
StrengthsFinder 2.0, Gallup unveils the new and improved version of its popular assessment, language of 34 themes, and much
 more (see below for details). While you can read this book in one sitting, you'll use it as a reference for decades. Loaded with
  hundreds of strategies for applying your strengths, this new book and accompanying website will change the way you look at
    yourself--and the world around you--forever. Available exclusively in StrengthsFinder 2.0:(using the unique access code
     included with each book) * A new and upgraded edition of the StrengthsFinder assessment * A personalized Strengths
    Discovery and Action-Planning Guide for applying your strengths in the next week, month, and year * A more customized
      version of your top five theme report * 50 Ideas for Action (10 strategies for building on each of your top five themes)

What are the strengths YOU can rely on?, July 14, 2009 By Strengths Fanatic
This review is from: StrengthsFinder 2.0 (Hardcover) Strengths Finder 2.0 is the follow up to Gallup's Now, Discover Your
Strengths. The book includes a revamped version of the StrengthsFinder test that shows you not just what your top five
strengths are, but also how you rank in the rest of the 34 strengths from Clifton's model. The new book is light on content (very
light) but the test is a substantial improvement.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).The StrengthsFinder(If you haven't taken it before,...

Beware: You Only Get Your Top 5 Themes And Not All 34 In Order, March 24, 2008 By Gary Corbin (Grosse Pointe, MI)
  This review is from: StrengthsFinder 2.0 (Hardcover) The book is a quick read and very helpful in getting one to think about
one's strengths and the potential complementary strengths to look for in others to offset one's weaker areas, if you work in a
team environment. However, once I completed the online test and obtained the resultant reports, I was shocked to learn that I
would only get the Top 5 Themes, and the other 29 remain a mystery. Upon contacting the company, I learned that for an
additional $550.00 I could then obtain the other 29 themes, as well as their order of ranking. It is obvious to me that this book is
being used as a sales "hook" to try to get you to spend more money with the company and may also be being used as a
"beachhead" sales device to penetrate into potential corporate accounts. I was not surprised or enlightened at all by the results,
as I have been through a number of these types of profiling and behavioral characteristics tests over the years. However, they
were "somewhat" useful to reconfirm some of...

Took the test twice and only one talent remained the same!, October 23, 2009 By Urban Sprawl
This review is from: StrengthsFinder 2.0 (Hardcover) The main concepts of the book can be summarized in 4 pages or gleaned
from the reviews here, but what you are really paying for is a one time chance to take the online test to assess your
strengths.Unfortunately Gallup provides only your top 5 strengths without providing your actual score or an indication of how
they measure relative to general population. Their claim is that telling you the score will distract you from the value of the
strength and that only the top 5 strengths matter. I suspect the real reason is that they don't want to let anyone reverse engineer
the test and find out how the scoring is done.All this would still be fine by me if test scores were not important. But that is not the
case. I took the test twice just to verify the publisher's premises that the results don't vary much based on your mood or from
one test to another. As it turns out only one of the top 5 traits in the test existed in both results. The other 4 out of 5 were not...
