Book Review: Strengths Based Marriage

Strengths Based Marriage by Jimmy Evans and Allan Kelsey // This book was a bit disappointing. Let me just start off with that.

In this book the two authors - Evans, a marriage expert and Allan, a StengthsFinder expert - dive into how to have a happier and stronger marriage by applying the concepts from the popular StengthsFinder assessment to their relationship. The StengthsFinder test is a popular personality test that identifies one's strengths in many categories.

While the book itself offers some great insight in how to expand upon learning your results from taking the StengthsFinder assessment, it doesn't offer the test itself. You have to pay $89 (I think) to take the test itself. This book seems to be more for the couples who have previously taken the tests to couple both this book and their results to expand their knowledge of themselves and their spouse. Given that nature of the book, I was still able to find interesting points and helpful advice for growing a stronger marriage. So while I didn't quite like it because of the high price point of the StengthsFinder assessment you'll need to take, I guess I wouldn't completely write off this book if you haven't taken the test.
