How Full Is Your Bucket? Educator's Edition: Positive Strategies for Work and Life
Based on a simple metaphor, the book features powerful stories, actionable strategies and breakthrough discoveries from a 50-year study. Includes a toolkit with a new Gallup positivity test and a personality assessment made popular by Gallup’s previous bestseller (over 1 million completes).
Organized around a simple metaphor of a dipper and a bucket — already familiar to thousands of people — How Full Is Your Bucket? shows how even the smallest interactions we have with others every day profoundly affect our relationships, productivity, health and longevity. Coauthor Donald O. Clifton studied the effects of positive and negative emotions for half a century, and he and his colleagues interviewed millions of people around the world. Their discoveries contributed to the emergence of an entirely new field: Positive Psychology. These same discoveries are at the heart of How Full Is Your Bucket?
Clifton, who also coauthored the bestseller Now, Discover Your Strengths, penned How Full Is Your Bucket? with grandson Tom Rath. Written in an engaging, conversational style, their book includes colorful stories and five strategies for increasing positive emotions, and it features an online test that measures readers’ Positive Impact.
How Full Is Your Bucket? is a quick, breezy read. It will immediately help readers boost the amount of positive emotions in their lives and in the lives of everyone around them. The book is sure to inspire lasting changes in all who read it, and it has all the makings of a timeless classic.
Included in this edition is a bonus section — “Instructional Guide for Educators” — an additional 64 pages with ideas for classroom “bucket filling” activities for teachers to use with their students.

A great little book that presents the philosophy/psychology of enabling and pursuing positive interactions with others. A good reminder to be kind to others for a healthier, happier life. Read full review

A little more substantive than some of the other pop motivation/biz books, but it also refined the "recognition for recognition's sake" culture applying common sense to it. Read full review
