    This new audio set is a very special abridgement of two of Stephen R. Covey's best-selling business books, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 8th Habit, read by Dr. Covey himself. We've condensed the content of two entire books into just six hours of audio, but you'll still enjoy Dr. Covey's lessons on powerful personal change and how to incorporate his ideas into your life to fulfill your ultimate potential.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People & The 8th Habit (Special 6-Hour Abridgement) to be better than the print version?

    Yes...This book is a encyclopedia of the self help literature from the past centuries. The author has summarized the main teachings about the topic into seven basic tenats. The stress is on self improvement and principle change - supported by not just vague or ambigous, open to interpretation ways to improve one self, he teaches specific examples in daily life, touch points in our work/life where we can start making changes and see expected results. The best part of the book - this does not teach you to be pretentious, or one of the 'How to manage your perception' prescriptions, it states that to achieve harmony and as a result being effective, one needs to make fundamental changes to one's guiding principles and the rest follows. The author cites great examples and suggestions.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People & The 8th Habit (Special 6-Hour Abridgement)?

    The discussion on going from perosnal level of effectiveness to greatness!


    What does Stephen R. Covey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The expressions of speech, first hand knowledge from the master and above all a great well paced peep into a great way to organise one's self and beyond.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Emotional bank Account


    Any additional comments?

    One thing missing was if there was some complementing material with the audio file, especially where they base the discussion on graphs and diagrams, it is better to have the visuals as well..Maybe in future, for books where they talk of conceptual models to explain something, the audio file could be accompanied with perhaps those few pages from the book, so user doesnt miss out on anything at all.

    How did Alan Mulally - an outsider to the auto industry - lead such a spectacular turnaround at Ford? How did Morgan Stanley CEO John Mack keep his company from imploding even as Lehman Brothers collapsed? What is it that enables such extraordinary leaders to galvanize their talents and energy, as well as the talents and energy of those who work for them, to achieve superior performance no matter what challenges they face?

    Subrat says: "Great read for both leaders and individuals"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Too Many Bosses, Too Few Leaders to be better than the print version?

    Yes - the author in this book, has summarized his vast experience corporate world, into basic, useable and implementable nuggets on how to lead without counting resource shortage or even lack of authority...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The B-B-N model on leading an organization and galvanising energy of more than just self.


    What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He reads the book with a lot of expressions, kind of getting used to his style! Like it...


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It took me a few sessions, mostly to be able to absorb the material and not just listen to it. Found it very well written and with examples supporting a viewpoint and practical suggetions with a list of things to look for, at some instances, to be valuable. Overall an inspiring book which makes the reader aware of pitfalls at various leadership levels.
