"Incredible wisdom that just keeps on giving..."
The thrill of constantly finding new ways to deal with challenges and express points of view. Adopting a new and sustainable and profitable paradigm shift.
Having to stop and rewind and take notes about every 5 minutes. It's so densely packed with useful material.
Essential reading for the entire world.
Yes, its quite important to know such things, but its more important of course to use them. So I think that there are more chances to use information wnen you read it or hear.
I think 8th habit will be similar.
I liked win win technicue, because i never heard about it
Situation in underground when kids were playing but their father was not paying big attention to them because his wife died in hospital
Its bit long hours to listen
"Hard going but slightly easier than the book"
I have tried to get through the print edition of this book on several occasions as it is supposed to be a self management classic. However I found the preachy style a bit too much, and the time it takes to get to the actual "habits" way too long. Some might say that is because I just want to know the techniques, not change my whole life, and am missing the main point of the book, but you do need to start somewhere and the first few chapters of the book don't leave you with much action to take.
The audio book was easier to manage but still hard going for the same reasons, but at least I could get on with other tasks while ploughing through it. I have now achieved my goal and will probably take away some lessons, but I would have liked to have got them in a more accessible and enjoyable way.
This is a classic and I would and have recommended it to many people. It's down to earth and believable and full of possibilities.
This is very inspiration and fills one with a "can do" feeling. It's a classic and perhaps the first "motivational" book. It's full of sound common sense and exercises to get you going. It also deals with the objections that always arise. It's plain and simple which is what I like most about it.
Although written so long ago it's still relevant to today. I believe this should be on school curricula
"Must read book, preferable in the college life."
Very good, time tested, practical self help book ever written.
Importance of making a effort to know people by name and addressing them with name.
good and effective narration.
Very good book to read now and then, just to reenforce the ideas.
"An effective way to cover a leadership essential"
Yes - I think I would probably need to listen a couple of times to get the most from it - like many good stories there is always more to hear from a retelling. However it can get a bit repetitive and heavy going so I would want the ability to dip in and out.
I'm only just starting to use audiobooks from leadership development point of view - I don't have a big enough personal library to make a meaningful comparison
No - it's too long to begin with. I listened while driving to work & was able to stop and start without losing too much, though I have to listen to small chapters again from time to time
I listen to this book over and over again. I don't think there has ever been a book written as powerful as this.
This book probably has some good points, but when does he bring them uuup? This book is so long and so boring and everything is said over and over and over again. I do not understand why this book is such a classic.
"Brilliant insights into effective living"
Covey has taken the 7 habits of being highly effective in life and given them excellent examples that people from all walks of life can relate to. Brilliant analogies and a must read/hear for anyone who wants to break free from old ways of being to become more authentic.
It is beautifully broken up into chapters and subheadings which gives time to pause and reflect on the messages being delivered
An excellent read. Everyone should have a copy and read it if they want to feel more fulfilled by life.
The author mentioning God put me off
This isn't for me. Mentioning faith in God just did not wash with the atheist that is me.
