really liked it

I enjoyed this book. It takes an interesting approach to self-improvement. The main point being that you have certain talents that you develop in your early life. Beyond your teens it is difficult to develop new talents. The general emphasis on self-improvement is traditionally focused on areas where you lack skill or talent. This book asserts that this approach is wrong. The idea that they promote is that you should focus on your strengths (talents) and focus on developing skills around your talents. I found this very thought provoking and interesting.

The book includes a code for an on-line test to identify your talents. I took the test and it sounded about right. One thing that is a little lacking in the book is once you find out your talents, how to exploit them going forward. However, it is interesting to review your top talent and think about how it fits into your career.
