    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    Overall

    I feel a little generous in my rating of 1 star. Now taking from the description this quote...

    " has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity."

    One would assume this book to contain good advice but better... "proven principles". I will give the author credit for researching psycology, but I'm curious if he understood it?
    His advice for the most part was either simplistic or true truths littered with false truths. At times I wanted to whince, it was like listening to someone saying subliminal advertising is a proven fact. In the end I couldn't get through the whole CD, the advice started to make me feel a little more idiotic. I think a lot of it did end up as pop psycology.
    IN summary, I'll say the book would be comparable to saying...
    "Your biggest fault is you can't take critizism from people smarter then you"

    A GREAT EMETIC!
