    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
    What did you love best about The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People & The 8th Habit (Special 6-Hour Abridgement)?

    Not woven too well. Hard to pick out the seven among the eighth habit even though I knew them well. It was more confusing than enlightening.


    What did you like best about this story?

    He attempted to add the seven habits and eighth together but just didn't pull it off as I expected.


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

    His voice emphasizes points that he intended to make that you wouldn't read.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Put it all together from the seven and that's how you go from good to great. Mostly, find your voice so you can help others find theirs.

  • Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action

    Story
    (1366)

    Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why.

    Allan says: "Important Theme - Repetitive Presentation"
    "Understanding "why" really makes a difference"

    Story
    If you could sum up Start with Why in three words, what would they be?

    It's most necessary.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The head of Southwest Airlines - Keller. He's got it going on what it takes.


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

    The expression of what this all means in a very positive way. It's not boring, but key and essential to work.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Why makes the difference.

  • Talent Is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else

    Story
    (1154)

    One of the most popular Fortune articles in many years was a cover story called "What It Takes to Be Great." Geoff Colvin offered new evidence that top performers in any field - from Tiger Woods and Winston Churchill to Warren Buffett and Jack Welch - are not determined by their inborn talents. Greatness doesn't come from DNA but from practice and perseverance honed over decades.

    Sasha L. Stowers says: "An Even-Handed Look At Talent"
    "Good book"

    Story
    Would you listen to Talent Is Overrated again? Why?

    No. Once is enough. It's good to know but not something you want to memorize.


    Have you listened to any of David Drummond’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    It makes you think about people with talent or no talent and forces you to ask the question a whole lot about certain people and why.
