I listened to this while i was doing some long work tasks. It was easy to listen to without being sidetracked from my work. I feel like I have gained some positive perspectives from listening to this book.
I don't think so unless my paradigms change.
Narration was like listening to a Rottweiler bark.
Anger and disappointment
Very old school approach. Lot of personal problems without understanding why. Very left brain oriented. Unsuited for today. Lacks depth and meaning...
This book is great and I would recommend to anyone. I will listen to this book again. This book can help persons that might have difficulty moving with their lives. It is a great book, I going to buy this to a friend of him the does seem to want to do anything with his live and have severe social skills. I know that this book will definitely help him.
actually, I love this book so much I am going to go buy the print version
Everything about this book is great. I have already re-listened to parts of this book several times.
it is all great. this is one of the best self-help books I have ever read
I wish Audible.com allowed you to download a hard copy of the book. I find that I keep re-listening to sections over and over and I'd love to be able to take notes along the sides.
I was worried with some of the other reviews complaining about the author's pronunciation and speed. However, after listening to the book I found his pace was actually very good for the material (and yes, probably a bit slower than most audio books, but not by much), and I really didn't notice any pronunciation issues.
Overall, the book is excellent. Was it a life changing book? Probably not, but still an incredibly good book that really does cause you to look at your own life differently and others' opinions differently.
I would strongly recommend this book to others.
Yes, if I had to! It talks about being proactive etc.
His voice and how he told stories of his kids and wife to make the point clearer for the listener
Green and clean!
No, I found this book painful to listen to:
Although there are some good pearls of wisdom in the book they are too far and few to make this process worth it, just drags on too long.
No, I would rather recommend the abridged version, I think I would have enjoyed the abridged version much more and got it out the way.I found myself rather listening to other books and avoiding this one.
I dont think so.
Good message, but hard to follow with his long drawn out stories and manner of speaking.
Get the abridged version life is too short.
I don't quite understand what all the hype is about. The book is good but not great. It seems to cater more to parents and adults. It helps with raising kids and families. I don't think it is that applicable for singles in their 20s or below. That is not to say it's not a good way to live because it it, but I don't think it is anything you do not realize on your own.
Overall, I don't understand why it is any more popular than other self help books.
Highly recommend this book to anyone. Need to be willing to work through the assignments he gives and really think hard about what you want in life. Great book.
...for those looking for a long term (not quick) fix to their lives. Mr. Covey makes no secret that this is hard work and takes time to create a new habit. Every time I listen to it I learn something new. I can appreciate his affinity for the character (not personality) ethic. While I've tried countless other books and audio programs that preach more the short-term personality fixes, I keep coming back to "The 7 Habits..." If you're interested in working on the part of your iceberg that's below the surface of the water (stealing a metaphor from Mr. Covey), and not just the tip, then this is the book for you.
