Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 2/10/2014

    " Insightful. Took the test and scored as an Advisor and Motivator. He stresses paying attention to the things that energize and drain you and then shift your life toward the strong areas. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Natasha Fondren | 2/8/2014

    " Skimmed it in under thirty or forty minutes. It's written in a very skimmable format, which is great. You won't miss anything by flipping through. Basically, all that you can take away from the book is, "Play to your strengths." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Almie | 2/4/2014

    " The title is misleading, I wasn't impressed with the cover, and even though I didn't agree with the results of the strong life test...... I loved the book! I wished I read it when I was a teenager. It's one of the very, very few self-help books that gives you practical and easy tools to make a decision. His perspective on strengths and weaknesses shed a whole new light on things for me as well as how I direct and encourage my kids. I've continued to refer to it and it continues to uplift me. Every woman should read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 mandy | 1/30/2014

    " I was cynical picking this book up. Not another American (and a man) telling me how to fix/run/move-on with my life. This book gave me some practical tools to help me understand how to work out what are my real strengths, how I can use them, and how it will help me make good decisions that will continue to only make me stronger. I don't give 5's out very often, but I really thank my work for putting this forward as a book to read. I also really thank Marcus and his team for using their strengths to help me find mine. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 1/24/2014

    " I have been on a bit of a podcast binge recently, and I stumbled upon Buckinham's series on Oprah's podcast wherein he talked to a group of woman about how to make their jobs better. Buckingham has this unique philisophy called "strengths" wherein he says that in order to be happy at your job, you have to do things that strengthen you, or give you that natural high. I mean, that is way oversimplified, but overall that is what he is saying. I thought the podcast was great so I bought this book to listen to on my way to work. While I thought a lot of his analysis was really insightful, I felt like it was a longer version of the podcast, and perhaps he just wrote the book to capitalize on his new "female" market after Oprah made him more well known. The book was decent, but that podcast if free, so I would recommend downloading that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 1/17/2014

    " Great ideas about listening to your self to find what makes you feel strong, and then incorporating more of that into your life roles. There is a free video series at Oprah.com (called Career Intervention) that Buckingham leads that discusses some of the ideas for this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sumedha Kodipyaka | 1/17/2014

    " Very good one - i would recommend it if you have not yet.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassandra | 1/11/2014

    " Really relevant to women!! Loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolyn | 12/27/2013

    " Full of evidence, examples, insight, and practical advice on how to maximize your potential at home, at work, in life... I love the way he describes (and supports) a strength-oriented perspective. Reminds me of "The Cure for the Common Life" by Max Lucado, but more rigorous. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Varra | 12/2/2013

    " Took the online quiz - interesting info, some of it useful, some not. Take what you can get out of this book, leave the rest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bernadette Bustillos | 11/8/2013

    " like the way Marcus gives real women experiences, felt connected with them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 10/31/2013

    " Thought this was really great. Straight forward and uplifting. I've read a lot of this kind of stuff and this is one of the better life roadmaps. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenell Hollett | 9/6/2013

    " Outstanding book that reminds us it's not about juggling, it's about deciding which balls to catch. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marlasg Griffith | 8/11/2013

    " Definite read for all women! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan | 5/4/2013

    " I didn't finish it, which is the reason for 2 stars...I guess it's not the time in my life for this book, because I couldn't get into it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 2/4/2013

    " This was good-mostly stuff I have a pretty good handle on but always good to touch up on. Also LOVED the part about helping your daughters find and expand their strengths. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheri | 7/6/2012

    " Read and listened to this one in the car as I traveled back and forth to work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria | 8/8/2011

    " I met Marcus at the Mass Conference for Women, and this book is essentially an expanded version of his workshop there, but it had a lot of good "nuggets" of wisdom that I was able to take away and apply. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brenda | 7/30/2011

    " Just a bit too Oprah for me but I am guessing lots of public library patrons will eat it up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bree Hutson | 6/28/2011

    " After seeing Marcus on Oprah discussing this book I downloaded the audio! AMAZING! "

    " Fantastic ideas that made an impact on the way I will live my life! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 9/2/2010

    " I really liked the concept of "catching and cradling" your strengths. A lot of the book is waffle and not necessary to read, but there are some very important concepts that can be applied. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassandra | 8/13/2010

    " Really relevant to women!! Loved it! "

    " I found this book very helpful. I'm going through a career change, and Marcus' insights helped me narrow the focus of my job search. I'd highly recommend it, especially for women. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherrie | 3/22/2010

    " I really liked his workshop on Oprah and found the book to be very useful as I considered my own struggles with balancing my life! The case studies were interesting and inspiring. He definitely 'gets it' and is motivating. I will re-visit this work in the future! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria | 3/9/2010

    " I met Marcus at the Mass Conference for Women, and this book is essentially an expanded version of his workshop there, but it had a lot of good "nuggets" of wisdom that I was able to take away and apply. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheri | 1/13/2010

    " Excellent book and just what I needed! I really connected with this book. I read it in 3 days!! A record for me! It has an inspring message that grasps all the roles we women play and offers a path to a strong, authentic and fulfilling life. I'll be coming back to this book again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan | 1/10/2010

    " I didn't finish it, which is the reason for 2 stars...I guess it's not the time in my life for this book, because I couldn't get into it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 1/9/2010

    " The quiz in the book is the most important part as far as I'm concerned, and it doesn't take a full book to explain it. I do, however, highly recommend taking the quiz (which can be found on Oprah's website). "
