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.

The expanded anniversary edition includes updated research and content and a workbook for individual and team development.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, easy read! It was a really nice, easy read, but I did find that it was a bit repeditive and the pages were mostly used up with little facts, which is nice, but... left the book 1/3 "empty". Over all I really enjoyed it and have passed it on to many people! I would deffinity reccomend it to anyone who wants a possitive change and outlook when interacting with people! I would DEFFINITLY reccomend this to any boss or manager!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Half Full of Ideas. The heart and concept of the book is great and simple. Tom Rath offers great concepts to enhance the most out of work and life. However, the book is a very fast read with many filler pages that almost could've been condensed into a blog. Personally, I would have loved more application or action steps. It's less strategic and more broad in it's teachings... I supposed that may be to allow you to apply it to your own workplace or lifestyle, but because it was fast to read and seemingly broad ideas, rather than concise examples, I felt it was more like a blog than a well-thought out book. In saying that the research that Gallop did was incredible. I find myself talking about these ideas to people in my day to day. The book gets you thinking and wanting to improve the lives of people around you. And gets you thinking about your impact in this world. Are you a bucket filler(someone who adds) or a dipper(someone who takes away)? If you are looking for a great conversation starter or a few really great ideas to bring to a team or community, this book is an awesome one that could easily be passed around and shared. If you are looking for direct actions steps... I would look elsewhere. On a side note the Strenthsfinder test you get to take is a worthwhile investment. You gain access it to here or any other Gallop publishment. If you are looking for a change and a way to focus on the gifts you have, improving your work, family and over all life... I suggest doing that 35 minut test! Cheers.
