    What are the habits all successful people share? In this audio presentation, Stephen R. Covey answers that question and teaches you how to make the Seven Habits a part of your life.

    Overall

    This is a very annoying version of the book. The "classical music interludes" introducing the next section are irritating, and disrupt the flow of the reading. Perhaps an unabridged version would have seemed more useful, but this version dealt with topics at a ridiculously high level.
    I'm not an "executive" type person, so...maybe this sort of information is useful to those guys, but...as an engineer, I found the book so impracticle it was useless. Furthermore, if Covey's definition of effective is not what you are looking for, there really isn't much point in reading this book. I'm not sure there was ever a solid definition of what effectiveness is. It was defined as NOT the executive who is fantastically successful and wealthy, but has no family life. I completely agree that family life is probably even more important than any business relationship, but as the book touts itself as beig respected by "business executives", one would imagine it would have some useful content for those in the workplace.
    Again, perhaps the full version is much better, or perhaps the book just does not lend itself to being listened to as opposed to read, but...i found this audio version tedius and pretty useless...
