The book is a mostly common sense but other times interesting and eye opening.
However, and this is a biggie for me, the narrator has very difficult time with "S" sounds. This leads to him pronouncing "person" as "pershon", "interpersonal" as "interpershonal" and so on, or other annoying quirks like "ineresting" instead of "inTeresting". This is OK in small doses, but given the subject matter that calls for these words a lot, his reading of this book annoys me slightly.
I generally listen to audio books while driving in rush-hour traffic but this book is even slower than the traffic. This is the first audio book I bought that I was simply unable to finish. Save your money, and more importantly, your valuable time by giving this one a miss!
I loved this series initially - but now i don't know. Good one. Maybe I just need to take a break and come back to it.
This audiobook gives you a very powerful tool to change your life. To me the examples used in the book connected the book to the reality.
I have been searching for help with problems for myself and my family going to Zig Zigler and many others to try to fix things with positive mental attitude. I wasn't wrong to look here for fixes, but I found a better way with Mr Covey. His simple explanations and examples make it easy to listen to and discuss with my wife. I now have wisdom that is making a difference in my marriage and family!
I have heard over and over again about how great this book is and yet i found myself drifting off and finding it hard to stay on track with this book. This book could have been completed in half the time, if he would have just gotten to the point. Also, very few concrete examples and references to his topics of discussion. Their are much better books out their on the same subject.
I am an undergrad student and listening to this book on my ipod while walking around campus and working out has really helped me. I think every student should read/listen to this book. It was a real eye opener for me.
Wish I knew about this book when I was in my 20's! So glad I discovered this book now. This audio contains so many lessons and tools that I think anyone in any field or profession will find them helpful.
this is another useful guide on how to think about your life that I strongly suggest you check out. this modern day classic outlines the principles to follow and those to avoid, and gives great suggestions to have a successful family and work relationship and how the synergy of both are needed for an effective balance in your life. there is hardly anything at all about his religion, so I don't know what the fuss is all about. highly recommended and very insightful.
