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!
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.
Exceptional. A must for any leader! Highly recommended or anyone seriously wanting to make lasting changes and start to achieving your goals.
