Ok, I am involved in HR and Training and I believe 100% in the Gallup and Buckingham methods of focusing on one's strengths. I have read, gifted and taught mini sessions all from his materials. This book is not bad necessarily, I just don't know that it is marketed for what it truly is. It is a book to run small study groups at Christian Ministries and churches. I myself happen to believe, but that is not what I expected from this book. They have two pages that are an interview with Marcus Buckingham and it is just about word for word his introduction to Trombone Player Wanted.
