I've been listening to audio books for well over twenty years (even before audible was available). Secretly, I wish I could be a narrator.
I'm a big fan of Dr. Stephen R. Covey and read this book several times since it was first published and have tried to follow the lessons it teaches in my personal and professional life. I like this audio version because it is actually narrated by Dr. Covey, and it's a good refresher.
I struggled at first staying attentive while he leads into the 7 habits, but I could not stop listening as he explains his theories. I am now listening to the book again and taking notes along the way.
I tried to listen to this book but it was too wordy and author goes off in a tangent a lot. The reader puts me to sleep. This could use some major editing to make it more concise and get to the point.
Many of us might be looking for a quick handbook for life. This is pretty much that, except that it's a lot bigger than a handbook. It's like a textbook for life. It gives you most of what you need to know about life, including methods for successful relationships (personal and business), how to be successful in general, how to improve your spiritual life, and more.
It's a must-read, but it's also a serious read. I don't mean to put you off. Everyone unstressed in personal/spiritual/professional development should read this. You can start at the beginning and get the gist of it or go all the way and get all the detail. Like a good textbook, you can go back to it for a refresher. It is a textbook for life.
That's just my own personal reaction.
