1. No doubt the content of this book is priceless and game changer but for some reason didn't enjoy the audio version of it.
2. Was difficult to pay attention for a long duration.
3. Still you should read this book at least once in your life.

Covey takes timeless elements of wisdom, shapes them into a brilliant template for engaging one's life, then delivers this to the reader with moving clarity and humility.
If you have not read (or listened) to this book yet, and you care anything about what becomes of your life, you really, absolutely, most certainly, should make this the next book you read.
I liked the content of this book (except at times when it got "churchy"), but could barely finish it due to the reader's voice. I know it's the author, but he should have hired someone else to read his book.
Just about anyone.
Yes, to his voice. It was so irritating.
great book. definitely one that I'm going to read time and again. I wouldn't recommend this book to the reader who wishes to be entertained. it is a serious "self help" book that will make a difference no matter who you are or what your profession is.
I enjoyed the first 3 principles most. finished the book in 1/2 a week.
Say the same thing in fewer words
Because I know Covey came up with products for time management shortly following this book, I felt like I was being "marketed to" in that section.
Not if he is the narrator. The books are good but when he narrates his own book, it's so boring. I'm unconsciously tuning him out.
I only got through a few chapters when I decided to return it and use my credits for something more useful.
His books are very good. I just can't seem to enjoy the audio. I listened to audio a when I drive all of the time and this one is just BORING! Dud I say it was BORING? I think it would have been great if someone else presented it.
