Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darcia | 2/15/2014

    " This book confirms everything we know about positive psychology and cites studies to back up the data, all in a clear, concise and quick read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jasmine Ko | 2/11/2014

    " I read this for work and I enjoy the reminder about the influence that I have on other people's days based on how I interact with them. The psyc major in me enjoyed taking the StrengthsFinder quiz. It was a very quick read. My only complaint is that I wish it gave me more specific tips on how to actually be more positive in my interactions with other people and how to deal with people who are constantly negative. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bethany W | 2/1/2014

    " Loved it!!! The title is corny but the content is a must read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shaun | 1/30/2014

    " A quick and interesting read about how to help others buy "filling their bucket". I highly recommend this book as a way to remember to help and serve others in simple and meaningful ways. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natasha | 1/25/2014

    " good ideas, but I didn't like the book or maybe just the writing style "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mindi | 1/23/2014

    " Bucket-filling should be common sense for everyone, but unfortunately we have many bucket-dippers in the world. Read this for work. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angela | 1/13/2014

    " The general concept I rate a 5. The problem with the book is it does not get beyond the level of general concept, a few examples and lots of blank space on the pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yvonne Jarrett | 1/5/2014

    " Interesting look at happiness psychology and the need to keep a postive outlook on life. Provides good examples as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 12/11/2013

    " I really liked the book. There is also a young childrens version. We used this book at a faculty meeting with the childrens version. We are filling everyones bucket at work. Great for postive attitudes to use in a work or school situation. Even in the home with young kids. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrmanhardt | 12/2/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brooke | 12/1/2013

    " I hate this! Maybe because I could have written it. Maybe because it was a rally cry for my boss for a few months. I just did not care for the bucket book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claudia | 11/14/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kara | 3/22/2013

    " I generally like this author's work, but I felt this book had very little substance or practical advice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrs | 11/3/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanny | 8/9/2012

    " Although some of the principles of this book can be a bit obvious, I found it a really good refresher on staying positive and so inspirational I bought a number of copies and gave them out as gifts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jcsnelling | 5/24/2012

    " It was ok. I did't think there was anything terribly original in what was presented; however, I do think it was worth the read as we all need to stop and reflect from time to time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaime | 3/8/2012

    " Nothing particularly new or groundbreaking here. Still, a good reminder to be more conscious of the impact our interactions have on other people and more conscious of the effect the people we surround ourselves with are having on us. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 12/2/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 8/27/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 8/8/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jude | 5/5/2011

    " Probably one of the best "positive" books I've read in a long time. I bought it mainly for work but the concepts will easily be applied to my whole life with family and friends. If you want to make a change in yourself and your surroundings, read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jodi | 4/25/2011

    " I read this for one of my grad school classes for management strategies, and it was surprisingly good. It was a fast read with interesting stories and concepts. Great for any walk of life, but I will use these tips in my job and in a future job in healthcare management.
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Camille | 3/20/2011

    " Very motivational and applies to all areas of life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 2/1/2011

    " I liked this. Neat way of looking at how everyday interactions effect people. I knew that how I deal with people effects them, but never thought about how when other peoples interactions effect me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thomas | 1/21/2011

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 1/10/2011

    " Received this book from work so I read it and think it sends a good message around the importance of being positive both personally in relationships with those around you. Short book too! The message equally applies in and out of the workplace. "

    " Fast, easy read-- I love the idea of positive psychology having a place on the shelf of academic study now! "
