This is a superb book particularly for women who feel they are in a rut, need a change or just need more.  This book is a coaching exercise to identifying what is needed in your life to make changes to reach a goal of happiness.   Marcus is excellent in providing the tools to unlock the keys that will bring fulfillment, peace and control.

What makes the book more valuable is the usage of real women and their plights.  This extra care to details allows a variety of women to relate to them and it shows the path forward or it shows how they could have found the path forward.  This book's timing was perfect for my situation as I look to find what is missing and what will increase my quality of life.

I also found the statistics interesting such as the increasing number of unhappiness among women in general since the 1970's.  Marcus has an ability to understand and provide examples on how to beat the odds.  He also breaks down different domains in your life and provides useful tips in improving those areas whether it's your children, your career, your relationships and so forth.  It's a very well rounded book that I would highly recommend to any women regardless of emotional and physical happiness. 
This website has great resources from an overview of the book, the Strong Life Test, an overview video, an excerpt from the book, conferences and a discussion series.

Marcus has spent his career helping individuals discover and capitalize on their personal strengths.  He calls on his wife's experiences and other women to write this excellent resource on identifying what it is that so many women suffer from.  Marcus was able to take his work experiences as a senior researcher at Gallup Organization which laid the foundations to his book.
