Check out what women are already saying about Find Your Strongest Life.

Brooke: When I read the “Ten Myths” that opened the book, I was completely hooked. The statistics are interesting and fresh. I also related to the problem that sets up the book: "Which parts of me should I cut out?" As I read, I could see myself in the Marcus’s big-picture analysis and statistics. The early part of the book made me anticipate a breakthrough. And Marcus delivered. Overall, he explains a woman''s dilemma perfectly . . . in fresh terms with a unique spin. The main ideas in each chapter were so engaging. Chapter 6 in particular is worth the price of the book. I have already started looking for strong moments in my life, and I want to tell every woman I know to do the same. It is definitely life-changing.

Rebecca: It was really good. It was awesome. And to be honest, perfect timing for my life. I''m REALLY in that place. I can''t tell you how badly I''ve been depressed for the last several months just trying to figure out what to do differently so I''m not so miserable. On one hand, I''m grateful I have a job still. I have a mortgage and bills and all that. But on the other hand...I can''t continue to work at a job that gets me nowhere, is not rewarding, not challenging, and mentally drains me. I really have started avoiding my family because I''ve become so rude and snippy. It''s a bad cycle. BUT...God willing this year (sooner than later) I will be able to put this behind me and do what I love :) Even if it''s making half as much money. Thanks for thinking of me to read this. I needed it!

Delaney: I was on a plane as I finished reading the manuscript. I was going to be with my daughter who is a law student. As I finished the pages, Marcus helped me gain a new understanding of myself that stood out like a neon sign: I am the person who helps others build infrastructure, get through situations ,and set everything right.  It goes beyond motherhood. I am an event planner by birth. I see big pictures and the components necessary to get from vision to execution.  The content helped me to reframe my own thinking. Very helpful. I’m excited to take the online test and see which role I''m born to play.
 
Jennifer: As a working mother, I found the concept of the book fascinating.  There are daily struggles of trying to balance being the perfect wife, mother, and employee, and the book helped me truly understand how to navigate all those demands.

Strategies For Becoming Strong At Work & In Life

As a researcher, I am particular when it comes to nonfiction books and want them to be well-grounded and rich with substance. As a coach, I long for the research to translate into practical, usable tips that anyone can apply. And as an avid reader, I love stories that simultaneously entertain and enlighten. With Find Your Strongest Life, Marcus Buckingham satisfied all 3 of these needs!

I first read Find Your Strongest Life shortly after its publication in 2009 and have used it in my work ever since. I often have clients take the Strong Life Test when we first begin working together, and so far nearly all have said the results were spot-on. And, unlike many other assessments, the Strong Life Test (as well as StrengthsFinder and those found in Buckingham''s other books) points people in the direction of their *strengths* - qualities that they can leverage and enhance, rather than labels that might limit or inhibit.

Find Your Strongest Life was also an excellent book choice for the professional women''s success club that I facilitate. It provides ample discussion points, activities, and "I can relate to that!" stories that kept our group positive and moving forward. We highlighted some of the book''s points in fun ways, too - such as bringing sets of juggling balls to the meeting where we discussed "Catch-And-Cradle." The book made it easy to incorporate these types of activities into the group - and made them memorable, too!

One of the greatest takeaways of this resource lies in the "SIGNs" of a strong life. If you feel successful, instinctively look forward to tomorrow, continually grow and learn, and fulfill your needs, chances are you live and work in favor of your strengths. By leaning towards optimism, growth, and the activities that light you up, you can enhance your productivity, increase your sense of purpose, use your time more wisely, and live and work with joyful success. Find Your Strongest Life helps readers do this with authenticity and confidence which, in the long run, serves us all!

This book changed my life. It subtly seeped into my mind and I started making small changes in my choices throughout the day. It was just effortless really but has made a huge difference in how satisfied I feel. It has nothing to do with stupid things like positive thinking and not even with things like affirmations. It''s more practical than that and you get results instantly. He pretty much shows you exactly what matters and what doesn''t. This book is what I''ve been searching for for a while because affirmations and putting a positive spin on a miserable situation never really did much for me- it just feels fake. This book helps you to get more self and that is why you end up satisfied. You find the essence of who you are and you love it! I am so happy that I found this book because I was in a low point in life and it helped me out of it. I''m grateful to the author, who seems to have spent his life really caring about and helping people.

Marcus Buckingham has bad news: it''s tough to be a woman.

But he also has good news: every woman can surmount her challenges and live a full life by listening to, living in, and being led by her strengths.

This is Buckingham''s latest book on the subject of strengths, and it is directly targeted towards women. He starts out by spewing out a slew of sad statistics. He points out how women, as a population, are sadder than men, sadder as they grow older, and sadder now than they were 40 years ago. They are also more stressed and far more likely to suffer clinical depression than their male counterparts.

Why is this? He argues that both the complexities and responsibilities of a modern woman''s life have mushroomed, and the push to "have it all" but lead a "balanced" life have led to a massive stress overload.

What is the solution? Buckingham offers a strengths-based life as a path out of the jungle the 21st century woman finds herself entangled in. For those unfamiliar with his previous works, he defines a person''s "strengths" as actions that give a person a feeling of satisfaction & accomplishment. These are specific areas that are hard-wired into a person and stay fairly constant throughout life- the roles they were born to play.

The secret to a fulfilling life is to discover your areas of strengths, to nurture them, and to let them guide you. Chapter by chapter he discusses strategies for searching for "strong moments" (specific times you feel "in the zone") and then intentionally "imbalancing" your life towards them. There are also specific tactics chapters for career, relationships, and kids.

I think the book suffers from some inevitable tunnel vision: while I believe living in your strengths is an important component to a fulfilling life, it is only a part. He also makes trusting one''s feelings a major focus of the book, and (sorry, Marcus) feelings can''t always be trusted. Finally, he skitters too close to "Law of Attraction" like concepts in some of the material for my tastes.

All in all, Find Your Strongest Life is, (couldn''t resist it!), a strong book. Reading and applying its principles will indeed help women navigate the jungle of 21st century living to find their strongest life. I found it useful myself, both for its universal principles and also to help me understand the challenges that women face today. Highly recommended.

This book is the gift that keeps on giving. I keep going back to it to find more juicy nuggets of inspiration. I especially enjoyed the section on discovering your strength roles. That was liberating for me. I no longer take on roles that do not reflect my strengths. This book is a game-changer for women who are trying to do it all and have it all and find themselves exhausted and unhappy in the process. I highly recommend it to all women on the journey to find "fullness" instead of balance, as Mr. Buckingham puts it. Such an awesome book!

I really enjoyed this book. The examples were very beneficial because no two women were the same and that helped me to see myself in different examples and use the ideas to better understand my strengths.

If I read a book like this and can take away one or two things to improve my life, I feel that this is a really good book -- this is true of this book. I read one of Marcus Buckingham''s other books and enjoyed it, but I couldn''t really apply it to my life. On the other hand, this book written for women, spoke to me and I was able to apply his suggestions to my life. Since reading this book, I feel stronger and more positive. I keep it next to my bed so I can reread certain parts to keep me on track. A definite good read.

Well, I was a little sceptical when a friend showed me the book and said I HAD to read it. Im not particularly fond of American style authors, toothpaste smiles on a cover and so on. But this book pleasantly surprised me! Women and men are wired differently and it has been a pleasure to see a woman''s life and possible troubling thoughts through the eyes of a man. Men do look differently at the world than we, women, do. It has brought me some nice eye-openers that I also use for my clients in coaching as to what makes you happy. Read and judge for yourself, it is fun to look at things from another perspective!
