If you get this book from the library, you'll have to pay to take the test separately. It's $15 in 2017. I thought it was worth it.

How do you do your strength finder 2.0 test? It is supposed to be a code in the back of the book. Can we all share that code since this a book from the library? Or do we have a buy a new book or new code?

This was an interesting book. But it felt very general and I believe there are better leadership books out there. If you know the Strengths 2.0, it might be more informative. However, their examples felt self-explanatory and obvious.
