4.0 out of 5 stars Positive life strategies 27 Jan 2009
By Rolf Dobelli TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Going through life with a short, handy, happy philosophy - particularly one as affirming as the concept in this book - is very nice. However, a fine line separates simple from simplistic. Although some readers will enjoy the breezy easiness of this approach, others might find it to be just a first step toward becoming more upbeat. Donald O. Clifton, a pioneer in positive psychology, and his co-author and grandson, Tom Rath, developed the "bucket" and "dipper" theories of happy emotions, based on Clifton's research. The bucket is a metaphor for your sense of well-being. Every interaction fills your bucket or drains it. You also have a psychological dipper you use to add to or take away from other people's sense of joy and security - their buckets. The choice, the authors explain, is yours. The book includes small drop-shaped cards for dropping a few friendly notes. It also provides five strategies that can increase your positive emotions and those of the other people in your life. If your bucket is perennially half-empty, getAbstract recommends dipping into this bestseller to see if it holds water for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars How Full is your Bucket? 16 Mar 2008
By Bridgit Breslow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I am currently using this book as part of the professional development of the Resident Assistants that I supervise, who are undergraduate college students who work with many different kinds of people. Although my staff does not always recognize the long-term meaning of this work, I feel that when we discuss the chapters and try to show the connection to daily activities, they are able to understand the meaning of the book.

I would recommend this book for an older crowd, and definitely to be used in a team-building way over the course of time.

Wonderful thoughts in this book. How did they ever think of this?! Everyone should read this book. Not only is it is uplifting but it makes one think about the others in the world and your effect on them. During and after you read this book you will feel good. Let a week go by, then pick the book up again and read it again.
