This is without a doubt the worst motivational / inspirational book I've ever read. Caveat, I couldn't finish it it was so bad (so who knows maybe my life would have changed had I finished it all).

It starts off by telling the reader to forgo his dreams so as to pursue a path of least resistance in life (As though a life of least resistance meant a life full of meaning). The stories pitched to sell the idea were not necessarily factual. I.e. saying how Rudy is an outlier and had to work way too hard to get a few seconds' playing time at Notre Dame. First, if you ask Rudy if he would do it all over again, he'd probably say yes. Secondly, Rudy is not the only case of a short (physically disadvantaged) athlete playing professionally.

If I had read this book in High School I most definitely would not be where I am now. This book essentially tells you to stop fighting against adversity and go do something easier.

The book, in summary, just says "Focus on utilizing your strengths, and don't get caught up on your weaknesses." Mind blowing insight that.

Not to mention they make you pay for a one-time online code so you can take their personality test. So I couldn't even share this book with my friends if I found it useful (which I most certainly don't).

I ordered a brand new one, and when I went to do the strength finder test the unqiue code was scratched off and already used.

Really good, easy read. Read the first couple of chapters, do the test, get your assessment and then read more about your strengths.
