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.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Rolf Dobelli HALL OF FAME on January 27, 2009
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.

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.

This book is an easy read with great ideas for classrooms and life! I read it in a day. I had already read "Growing Up with a Bucket Full of Happiness" and "Have you fill a bucket today?". It gave about the same information. There are forms that you can copy for your classroom use at the back

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Sandra Iskandar on September 7, 2008
Format: Hardcover
This is a terrifc introduction to teaching students (and co-workers) to become self-aware individuals. The theory provides us with a concrete method for evaluating our behavior and relating to others. These concepts have been well recieved in my 5th-8th grade classrooms. I read them the picture book version of the "story" as we began discussing working successfully in groups. The benefits are already apparent after only 4 weeks of school. The students have carried this over into all other aspects of the curriculum and hopefully at home and in their communities as well. A must read for all educators and administrators!

I have read this book many times. I have trained using this book. I garner something new each time I read it. It's full of lots of common sense approaches to treating people right. I will recommend this book to everyone.
