Impassioned argument for strengths-based education
Ms. Fox writes well and makes a compelling argument in favor of a strengths-based educational system. In fact this argument consumes the first 30-50% of the book.
In contrast to "Now Discover Your Strengths", this book does not cite a lot of research. Nor does it offer a list of strengths patterns that children might fall into. Instead it offers Ms. Fox's anecdotes and impressions on what is the best way to coach an adolescent to come to "strengths epiphanies". These coaching tidbits are interspersed in the book.
The audiobook form includes a reading of a long workbook at the end. I did not get a lot out of listening to this. It refers a number of times to figures on the audio CD, which naturally is not available if you downloaded the digital version.

My heart written in a book!
I love this. This book captures all my feeling about our current school system! It also captures my passion to see my children use their strengths and to become the best them! What a transformation our schools could make in our world through all our children if we adopted this!
