    Ever wonder why... think the way you do, relate with people the way you do, impact others the way you do and motivate yourself the way you do? Most people never take the time to think about who they are (i.e., natural talents). This book is especially useful for college students because it not only talks about your themes, but offers suggestions how to intentionally use your themes in academics and future careers. It will not tell you what to do, but how to be successful in what you do. The complaint from the other review suggests it's too vague - I agree and disagree. Yes, it does not tell you specifically what to do with your life - but I wouldn't trust any one assessment to do that. Where it does help is allowing you to see that you are a person with strengths and encourages you to practice what you are naturally good at, instead of focusing on your weaknesses. There is much more potential to increase areas of talent than areas of weakness. But don't just take my word for it, challenge yourself. After you take the online assessment and read over the results, I suggest you talk with someone about your results to get an outside perspective (someone who knows you well). I would also encourage you to talk about your results with a career counselor or professional who has a working knowledge of Gallup's StrengthsFinder to further discuss your results and future application. Knowing your strengths and having language to talk about them, is just the beginning - it's when you begin to intentionally use them in your work, relationships that you inevitably bring success to yourself and others. It may also challenge you to think about the strengths (i.e., natural abilities) of those around you. When you begin to see the strengths in others, you are adding value and appreciation to their life in addition to yours.

    Empowering Students through their own Strengths

    The book is based on 30 years of research on people who are extremely successful and provides solid information on how to use our natural strengths to succeed and overcome our weaknesses. With colleges always testing us to find our deficiencies and then forcing remediation classes on us, it is exciting to see a program that encourages us to use our strengths to succeed. The book gives examples of how these strengths are manifested in our lives and how we can use them to help ourselves and more importantly, others. A must read for those who are always told about their faults and need to see their natural stengths.

    About as meaningful as your daily horoscope!

    I had to buy this book for a graduate couse and I was very disappointed. It sounds like a great premise, but it is so vague and general that most of the strengths can be applied to anyone, and I didn't feel it gave and practical suggesstions to help readers capitalize on their strengths. Also, a few years back, I bought 'Now, Discover Your Strengths' because there was supposed to be a presentation by the Gallup Organization on that book at the school where I worked. I didn't realize it was by the same organization, and it's virtually the same book! Way too much money for no substance on both accounts. A huge disappointment.
