Publisher's Summary

World-renowned expert in leadership and organization, Dr. Stephen R. Covey, presents an in-depth look at Habit 1 of The 7 Habits, Be Proactive. Filled with never-before-released material from Dr. Covey, this audio includes new and insightful examples in the author's trademark engaging speaking and teaching style.
  • You Can Take Control: Habit 1 takes head-on the "victim mentality" that paralyzes and hampers so many people. Habit 1 says, "You are not a product of your circumstances; you can choose your response to every situation you face."
  • More Than an Audiobook: This is not a reading of the Habit 1 chapter from The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People. Instead, this content is drawn from a variety of recordings of Dr. Covey teaching this important principle. The result is an intimate and thorough exploration of what it means to "Be Proactive", including relevant, current examples to illustrate the points.
  • From the #1 Best-Selling Business Book of All Time: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has sold over 15 million copies.

      "Pretty much a rehash"

      Most of the content is a nearly verbatim rehash of parts of this chapter in the book. Some of the material near the end doesn't sound as familiar, and is very good and very useful. This is useful for those who would like to hear the basic ideas of this chapter and be able to review them without having to 'rewind' to that chapter in the book. Otherwise, just buy the unabridged version of the audiobook!

      "Not exactly as advertised"

      If you already own the actual book, "The Seven Habits...", don't waste your time and money with this one. It's entirely a re-hashing of the Habit 1: Be Proactive chapter from the original book. The publisher should feel embarrassed advertising this version, focusing solely on the 1st habit, as "never before released material" and "including new and insightful examples." Unless I fell asleep somewhere during this one-hour book, I heard nothing I haven't heard released before and nothing "new and insightful." It's literally a re-reading of the original chapter with either sound effects in the background or in a live presentation. While I love hearing Mr. Covey speak live (which bumped it up to 2 stars), it didn't make up for the rest of the program. There's nothing new or fresh about this program. I'm very disappointed, especially coming from a company as good as Stephen Covey's.
