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.
I have listen to this book 4 times since purchasing it 2 years ago. Every time I pick up something new. I truely believe that if you take active steps to implement the principles in this book you will achieve your dreams. This is the perfect blue print to live your life by.
I read the 7 habits in the 90's and have tried to follow its message ever since. This audio book is great as it is reasonably recent and the topics are still as relevant today as they were 18 years ago when it came out. It should be mandatory for all parents. Highly recommend
I bought thi book after hearing great things about it. I personally did not like it; I think the author keeps repeating the obvious way too many times.
If you want to deal effectively with people, this book should be in your library. I will listen to it several times. I have reviewed and studied the principles many times already.
If you want to win big - employ these principles. They will/do work.
I had to give this at least two stars because I couldn't make it past the first hour or so to see if it really is helpful or not. It has been an influential book, so the principles are worth knowing, but probably better digested in a skim-able book.
I agree with other reviewers who point out the painfulness of listening to Stephen Covey speak about this stuff. His tone also put me to sleep, and seemed condescending. But then again, I can't stand listening to Garrison Keillor's commentaries either...
Really, I'm afraid slow pace of the author and the narrative indicated that the ideas might not be all that revolutionary.
