Now how about this one? Third on our Top Selling Books 2012 list is Tom Rath's StrengthsFinder 2.0. Some readers might get the feeling of reading some similar book in the past. Well, it's actually true - partially. Six years after "Now, Discover Your Strengths" this topic is somehow revisited. For readers familiar with Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment it is understandable that it was designed to define some key talents for people. More than two million people have taken the assessment in the meantime and they've learned many things about their patterns of thought, feeling, and behavior that can be productively applied. Organized in themes, these patterns reveal one's innate talents. Those talents might become strengths, but practicing and developing skills is essential.
Tom Rath: StrengthsFinder 2.0 is really a try to spread the message about all this out to as many people as possible. There are no general descriptions of one's top five talent themes; however this book helps people get a talent profile so unique that they won't share any part of it with someone else.
Not being a novel, I firmly believe that this book well deserves its presentation on Top Selling Books 2012. In fact, in my case, Tom Rath's StrengthsFinder 2.0 inspires me for many months now. Test included helped me find my top five strengths. Thinking of those I can really understand better who and what I am.
Tom Rath: StrengthsFinder 2.0 from our Top Selling Books 2012 list helped me to focus on what's "right" with me instead of trying to fix some things I believe I'm not good at. In writer's opinion - fixing unnecessary things is a waste of time.
Book includes a code readers need to unlock the Clifton StrengthsFinder test on the StrengthsFinder website.
Although I think everyone should take this test and learn about real talents and abilities, I don't believe this book will stay close to the top of Top Selling Books 2012. I can of course be wrong. We'll just have to wait and see, I guess.
