Yes! Everyone should read this book. Lots of god advice for a full and happy lifestyle.
No....but I want to listen to "The Eighth Habit."
Begin with the end in mind!
Yes, because it is full of useful tips and easy to understand and use learned lessons.
Dr. Stephen Covey is a sage consultant who has so much to offer.
His honest emotions come through as reads his book. It is clear that he believes everything he has written.
I particularly like his suggested approach to clearly articulate and live by your principles. It makes so much sense to clearly document your values and goals so that you are sure you know where you want to go. It is also obviously beneficial to continuously revisit those values and goals to improve them. Thank you again Dr. Covey.
PhD candidate in Plant Pathology. Love science, love studying FUNGI for all the amazing mysteries. Select books to help me grow internally, so I might better the world and not leave it in worse shape.
Read this book and gain the system of life itself. The principles taught in this book are eye opening and earth shattering. They are the principles your Grandma taught you and you knew were right, but didn't know why they were right (Likely Grandma didn't know either). This book tells you why they are right and why you should live by them. All of my deepest self-inflicted pains stem from NOT following these principles. Since listening to this book my relationships are dramatically better. I am now a hub of positive energy for relationships to benefit from and not a source of destruction as I once was.
I have read it more than half a dozen times. Each time I learn more. Covey is a master.
It is not really about characters. It is about you and the way you see yourself and how you can improve your life. That is attractive.
Stephen tells some interesting stories, but the real issue is it is about you thinking about yourself.
Not sure I could see a movie in it.
It is an oldie but a goodie.
Reduce the pointless, long-winded explanations about author's life experiences. After 2 or 10 you feel you need to fast forward or turn it off. Very hard to listen to because the content is so thinly spread. Identify each habit clearly and easily - I found that listening was difficult because there is no "aha" this is a new habit topic. Would be a good book at a third of the length it is, if not less.
disappointment, sleep and yawning
it may be better in print when you can easily skip the pointless bits - although, there are much better books out there selling the same ideas. For me it was not hands-on enough. Too much "filler" no enough "content" of relevance.

This is an audio version of a best-selling book ready by the author. If you're looking to improve relationships and become a more effective person, start here.
I would consider the printed version better. I really did enjoy this audio version but, I love to see what I am reading.
The paradigm shifting of the way he saw the father on the subway.
A visual of what he is saying in the book.
How to change the way I see things.
This book has helped me a great deal. I am glad I got it. I have the audio and the printed version.
The book had technical problems such as chapters out of orders, choppy sound and skipped words.
Yes, I cried in parts because they resonated strongly with me.
This book should be taught to all people, it contains the life skills that will improve the lives of a great majority of the population.
The part about synergy is quite interesting. Other lessons also relevent in todays world.The part about how this book addresses todays problems is a bit long and unneeded though.
