Choosing the simple metaphor of a bucket and a dipper, the grandfather and grandson duo of the late Don Clifton and Tom Rath have produced an indispensable gem for enhancing the personal quality of a human life. In this very concise but profound book, Clifton and Rath combine empirical evidence with common sense to make the reader understand the effect, importance and impact of human interactions.
Even a passing and inadvertent interaction that transpires between two human beings possesses the might to either instill a surge of positivity or install a hovering cloud of negativity in the minds of both the interacting parties. To get the best out of such interactions, a person can either choose to fill the bucket (positively)of his fellow human being or dip into the bucket (negatively). Every positive drop falling into a bucket signifies a reciprocal advantage that has accrued whereas every drop dipped out of a bucket signals adversity.
This startlingly fundamental concept has the power to change the way in which we view the seemingly prosaic act of human interaction. This book needs to be not just read, but absorbed, assimilated and acted upon!
