This books goes beyond what many other business and self-help books do, not just teaching you what to do but helping you understand deeply WHY to do it. A great listen.
Listening to this book and choosing to practice what I've learned as I progress has made a huge difference in my career specially in the quality of my interactions with others and the way I influence others lives. Being able to listen rather than read its an enormous convenience that allowed me to not only complete the book faster but also to apply the things I learned and see the results. I know it doesn't end here, in fact this is merely the beginning.
Obviously this has been tried and true so there's no denying it's content. For me however it was a bit hard to listen to. I just finished it and must say that I've enjoyed it towards the end much better then to begin with. I can't at this point and time honestly say if it's the content the way it was presented or my personality that made it hard for me to get into but I do strongly advise everyone who is thinking about getting it to do so. You are thinking it because you want to improve yourself and that will only come with time and effort. I will probably go back to listening to this in another week or so.
Great material. I think I've avoided it in the past because I thought it would be cliché. Boy was I wrong. The ideas in this book really resonate with me at a basic level and the presentation makes me feel like I could actually put it into practice. Just listened through once and I'm excited to start from the beginning and listen and apply.
I could not make it through this book. Let me just say you can't pray, wish or hope faith helps you through life. I have read several other books that are actually useful.
Do yourself a favor and start with The Magic Of Thinking Big or something similar.
Narration was amazing and the content was even better! Cannot wait to relisten to the audio book as many times as needed until I practice what the book preaches.
I found the message vertical beneficial even more today than the first time I read the book many years.
My expectations were very high when I purchased this book. Steven Covey exceeded my expectations. This book has changed the way I interact with others in a very positive way.
