    Great review Chris!

    Clear, concise, and compelling.

    For me, really strikes the right balance between:
    1) reviewing the book itself: what’s in it, what’s it about, and
    2) what you think of it/how it applies to you (and potential readers).

    I’m a big fan of his work and books (First Break All the Rules and The One Thing You Need to Know are seriously read, re-read, annotated and used!).

    Currently using strengths based approaches as I work with graduate business students, coaching them in career and professional development at San Diego State University.

    So glad I happened upon your site–from a Google search for “standout buckingham.”
    Saw your book review site on pbwiki–so cool!! and the books are exactly the kind of stuff I love reading–and look forward to checking out more of your great stuff.

    Thanks again, Chris!

    Glad you enjoyed the summary! I’m envious of your work with students. That must be the teacher in me coming out.
