A Glass Half Empty? …or Half Full? is written by Dan Schuck. It is also illustrated beautifully.

A Glass Half Empty? …or Half Full? claims to be a children’s book for grown ups. I think it is suitable for all ages.

The title of the book uses the question: A Glass Half Empty? …or Half Full?

The description of this book is as following:

“The question of Pessimism vs. Optimism is often misunderstood, or worse yet, misinterpreted. But by taking a childlike and playful approach, we can explore one of humankind’s most ancient riddles and learn some of the deeper lessons that The Question can teach each of us.

The Question exists, in some form, in every language across the globe, and its origins are as ancient as the human spirit. But does this simple question really tell us if one is a Pessimist or an Optimist?

Can we use The Question to help us with finding balance, managing stress, and enjoying life? 

Using humor and innocence, this book provides us the opportunity to determine the fullness of our own glass, and how to apply it to our daily lives.”

Life is compared to glass simply yet beautifully. Our lives are like glasses. There are some things we choose to fill in our glass. There are other things we do not choose but our glass is filled with these too. Sometimes, we add something to our glass and sometimes our glass is filled by things from others.

This book focuses on motivation and self-help.

‘Keep it balanced’ is the message of this book in my opinion.

So is your glass half empty? …or half full?

Thank you to Netgalley for providing a copy of this book to me, in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
