Have you read the Strengths Finder 2.0 book before? I personally heard about it briefly once or twice, and it caught my attention.
There is the first version of it obviously, but I bought the second one when I saw it in Austin’s airport.
Just finished reading it a few days ago, and decided to do a review on it.
I can tell you upfront that this book is for you regardless whether you are building a business or have a job. This is perfect for either profession.
The very first thing that I do wanna mention about Strengths Finder 2.0 is the book is pretty small, so you’ll be able to read it pretty quickly. The chapters are also very short and are broken down into “pieces”. You can literally read the entire book in a day or two. The language is also very simple to consume for everybody (even for a Russian like me).
What I really liked about the book is that it’s not JUST the book that you’re buying. You also get to access a Strengths Finder test. The coolest thing is you should not be reading the book without going through that test, because it won’t make any sense. This test helps you identify your top 5 strengths. Highly recommend it.
