This , in my oppinion, is the base on which people should make decisions and make lifestyle choices. It takes alot of dedication to instill into your everyday routine, but that is where it is realistic. There are no quickfix answers to changing or promoting youself, it is a constant and continual process. Otherwise you are not being honest to the most important aspect, yourself
It was a good read... Especially through audible..i could now burn a CD and then do a 'CD read' instead of flipping through the pages..
though I'd not compare the effect the ' Seven Habits...' had on me as a late teen...or a young guy..as to this one...where I am rightnow 34..
I think reading a book and capturing from it (and getting inspired) has a lot to do with your age and your mental status... i was one of the lucky youngsters to have read ' Seven Habits...' at that young age..and it shaped me very well..helped me correct myself..today i'm doing much happier ..with myself... and 8th habit just confirms the importance of 'principle b ased leadership', integrity, and being useful to others...which I have learnt by now!

I am a big Covey fan and I was very disappointed with this work. It was no where need the standard of his previous works. I did not listen to more that 30 minutes as I got bored. I normally listen to audio books all the way through (and I normally go for the unabridged versions).
I purchased this audio book because I loved 7 Habits. I was dissappointed with this one because so much of it was a re-hash of the 7 Habits book. There is some new material, however not as much as I would have cared for and even a lot of the real world examples were copied from the first book.
I didn't really care for this book. I didn't think there was much more content than the 7 habits book. Also, Covey did the reading of the book himself. He should have spent the money to hire someone. He can't say the word "picture" and really mispronounced "ensign" and a few others.
