As a Superintendent of schools, I am always looking for ways to help myself stay positive and looking for ways to help staff and students to do the same. This book hits it right on the mark. Some people are stuck in apathy and self pity and need help finding their direction in life. You can either be a "bucket dipper" or a "bucket filler" and this book helps people realize that this has always been and always will be a choice. No one else will help you change your outlook on life.
As a side note, after hearing the author speak to a group of superintendents for two hours, I had to have MK Mueller speak to our entire staff. Not just teachers, but the bus drivers, custodians, cooks, secretaries, and aides. We spent eight hours together and it was well worth every penny we spent. I have seen a change in many of the staff and seven people wanted to become trainers for our students. Now our students are being introduced to "the powerful process for positive change," and our school environment is seeing the benefit.
