Here's a simple book with a whimsical premise. But first: what's a "bucket list?" A bucket list is a list of things you MUST DO before you kick the bucket. Yep, it's a to-do-before-I-die list. Too often, bucket lists are prefab, handed to you as if one size can possibly fit all.

But maybe you're not like Ed Carlson, who gave up listening to anyone else's opinion, and decided to walk up and down the highway spreading happiness, as told in I Walked to the Moon and Almost Everybody Waved. If you're like most people, you need some guidance in creating your list, but still don't want the answers handed to you.

This book is for the rest of us. It's a "bucket list generator." It's basically a workbook to create more than a hundred possible entries on your own personal bucket list. Each exercise asks you a few questions about a specific experience, feeling, activity, or other aspect of your life. A few more questions help to refine your understanding into a task that would be personally rewarding and fulfilling.

The final step of each exercise is a mini-essay where you describe your "bucket list item" with as much detail as can fit onto about five blank lines. There's room to go into some depth -- but the focus isn't writing about it, it's on identifying the activity so you can go out and do it.

At the back of the book is the complete checklist, where you can mark off each item in your custom-made bucket list as you complete it.

The idea is fun, and doing the exercises is uplifting. Whether or not you will actually go out and DO anything on your list is a matter of temperament. It may also be due to the somewhat whimsical, and not-to-serious approach of the book. But I wouldn't fault the author for this. The purpose of the book is to have fun, and to get some insight about yourself. In this, it succeeds in spades.

I was looking for a book that woluld give me guidance on the process of developing a bucket list. Instead it was just a bunch of bucket list items to think about. Even on the cover it said - "MAKE YOUR OW BUCKET LIST, How to desgin yours before you kick it". Note it says HOW TO!

Looks like the graphics are ths same cheesey ones in the parachute books.

Bottom line, not what I was looking for.

I loved this book!! I first stumbled across this book at the library. After renewing it endlessly and paying numerous fines I decided to buy this book so I could refer this forever! :-)

Here are some reasons why you would want to get this book:
1) To find creative, fun and thoughtful ways to create a bucket list.
A simple example from the book : Learn to do that thing you have always wanted to do - What is the one thing you have always wanted to do? How are you going to learn it? Can you take lessons? Can someone teach you?
This book forces you to stop and think what YOU want. It also suggests simple ways to take action(most important reason we have a bucket list in the first place!!).
I always wanted to learn calligraphy. So one fine day when I read this chapter I enrolled for a 2 day class and I loved the experience! Plus I learnt a new skill. Say what???
2) To explore meaningful ways to spend your free time.
Example: Do something awesome for your family, create your own recipe for a food you love, organize a pamper yourself day.

Reasons you wouldn't want to get this book:
1) If you are looking to copy someone else's list. (Use google)
2) If you want a list of items to check for the heck of it.( Use google)

Very disappointing. Totally lacked any organizing theme(s). Not even that funny. I would not waste my money on it, really.
