"In depth topic covered well!"
Totally analytical in its approach to decipher the internal and external mental noise distractions of a sometimes confused world..
"Not matching the expecations"
I was waiting for something new and valuable throughout the entire book and what I've found was just boring facts about obvious things. I didn't like the voice of the narrator too.
"Fairly good overall"
His reading is good and the content is definitely worthwhile. My only criticism is that the book is so long and drawn out. The content I do believe could have been reduced.
Overall worth a read!
"Brilliant but not concise enough"
An excellent teaching material to accomplish on multiple personal levels. However, stories and examples are far too long-winded and could often have been summarised in 2 or 3 minutes as opposed to 9 or 10.
Do not underestimate the power of the material between the headlines of the 7 habits. You cannot understand the power and influence of this book through the chapter titles alone!
This book has been my driving companion for weeks, and has opened my eyes to the keys to self effectiveness and self improvement. I feel like I'm at the beginning of a huge new challenge in learning to live the 7 habits. As a humanist, I found some of the references to God and spiritualism at odds with my personal beliefs but the author never sought to impose these beliefs, and they served to frame the material in the author's paradigm. I feel like the book itself even helped me understand this view, and the material within the book is of such high quality that it stands apart from these references anyway. The best book you could choose to devote a couple of weeks to listening to!
"Full of good content, worth to listen!!!"
It helped with the advise on how to deal with difficult people. Made me feel more positive about myself as i realised i was doing most of what was said, problem was that didn't believe in myself, plus people taking my ideas as their own ideas did not helped me, i tried to help and share with them, that was a mistake, share is good but not everything (they win i lose!)
For 2 weeks i was doing really good at work, listening in the morning this audio made my days more simple
I felt pushed to the right direction and motivated by the strong positive words of the audible
Can be sometimes repetitive but good for me as listening to it in the bus can distract.
I really focused on what has been said and for several years i don't finish a book!!
Thats is impresive!!
Good reading and clear. Loved it!!
"worth the work
If you can forgive the quite heavy handed religiosity of the book, this has some wonderful advice on principle centered living. I tried and failed to read the text version of the book as it is quite jargon heavy . The pace of the narration really helped me to absorb the content. I'm sure I will revisit this again and again.
"effective personal transformation"
This audio book has transformed my life through the principle led approach that Covey leads you through with wonderful examples and intuitive guidance. A must for anyone aspiring to be more effective.
One of the best books I have heard/read. The book is narrated in a slow pace so for me personally x1,25 speed made it perfect. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to work on themselves and lead their life in an effective and inspiring way.
