5.0 out of 5 stars What a book, 29 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How Full Is Your Bucket: Positive Strategies for Work and Life (Paperback)
If you want to read a book that will help you to see everyday situations differently and more positively - then buy this book. It is a great read and it really enables you to think about what and how you speak to people and how that can impact on them. We should all be using positive interaction questions/statements every day - although it is easier not to. I love being able to make a difference to other people when I interact with them. Being able to fill someone's bucket so that they feel good leaves you with a great feeling at the end of the day. This book will be given to friends and family this Christmas as it can make such a difference instantly and we can then have fun talking about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a read, 23 Nov 2006

This review is from: How Full Is Your Bucket: Positive Strategies for Work and Life (Paperback)
well written, a lighter read but with a deep message. Seriously recommend to anyone. (Even showed my child using 2 pots and rice to demonstrate how it works). I have a lot of this type of book and wouldn't recommend many but this one hit is right for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid and Entertaining, 5 Mar 2007

This review is from: How Full Is Your Bucket: Positive Strategies for Work and Life (Paperback)
Here is still another book which offers solid material, is well-written, and often quite entertaining. I would have rated it higher were there not so many other books which offer the same benefits while providing more insights and then develop them in greater depth when suggesting (a) how to determine what is really important in one's personal life as well as in one's career, (b) how to set appropriate priorities among them, and and (c) establish and sustain a proper balance between and among those priorities. Tom Rath makes effective use of the "bucket" metaphor, explaining how to avoid "filling up" each of several areas of activity with non-essentials or simply relocating them constantly from one "bucket" to the next. Years of rigorous research by the Gallup organization has generated an abundance of evidence to suggest the importance of focusing on the development of one's strengths and apply them where they can have the greatest impact. (Marcus Buckingham has authored or co-authored several books based on portions of that research which is also the basis of the core thesis in Rath's latest book, Strengths Finder 2.0.) The metaphor also serves Rath's purposes when he urges his reader to fill up the personal relationships "bucket" only with kindnesses and generosities. Who care quarrel with The Golden Rule except as it applies to masochists? However, there really isn't much more to be said about its value. For some readers, this book will have resonance with their own circumstances and prove helpful to them as they struggle to devote more time and energy to what is important (as Stephen Covey correctly advises) and less to what is merely urgent and often a symptom rather than a cause of a given need or problem. My own preference is for a discussion of relationships which requires me to become more engaged with the material than this book does. One man's opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read and implement, 16 April 2012
By 
This review is from: How Full Is Your Bucket: Positive Strategies for Work and Life (Paperback)
This book was easy to read and even easier to implement in daily life. I'm always a bit sceptical about self-help books, and it's also American, which sends alarm bells going off in my head! However, when I started it, I got really into it! It was well-written and a quick read. Initially, the pictures seem a little patronizing, but they're actually really useful for cementing what you have learnt in each section.

Overall, it's an excellent book on implementing positive psychology with minimum effort.
