"When Stephen Covey talks, executives listen." (Dun's Business Month)
This program is a very good, thorough overview of the habits. It serves as an excellent refresher once you've listened to the unabridged edition. As I mentioned in my review for the unabridged version, this information requires you to do some real work if you really want to make positive changes in your life. This program is a great addition to your library and you can pop on at anytime for refreshers on the material presented by Mr. Covey. Also, the live telling of the story, "Green and Clean" is excellent!
I have read the book, and previously listened to an abreviated version. If you are not already in this category, or familiar with these habits, I would highly recommend listening to this book multiple times. These habits describe fundamental principles that by consistently applying will make anyone, or team more effective. I have added them to a picture that is displayed on my computer monitor. I want to be continually reminded because "we become what we think about."
I read the book first, and I found that listening to the audio book at the gym , in the car etc reinforces the principles and understanding of Stevens teachings,highly recommended if you want to live live to your full potential.
It is sooo fun to listen to. And sometimes it is even emotional. I recently became a father, and this book made me understand the complete change of paradign the i went through. I recommend it 100%. Sorry my english.
Rambling. Very hard to follow. Probably works well as a book that you read but sucks as an audiobook.
Strong lessons for certain types of people. However, the reader is painful to listen to, the music is odd and this could probably be condensed into bullet/subullet form and should only take about 2 pages to go through.
This is a very good abridged version of the book. he does make reference to diagrams that come as an insert to the packaged form but this is trivial and does not detract from the content and can usually be seen somewhere on the franklin covey website if need be. As i said this is a clear and concise work which can change your life if listened to with an open and accepting mind. I feel you'll get the gist of the book and learn the concepts taught without any fluff. As stated by other readers it will take several listens to absorb all of the material here. there is plenty to learn even in this form. This is money well spent!
This is a great audio book. Definitely not a substitution for the book, but, a great use of 3 hours of driving time.
I have never understood why people would bad mouth the reader - especially not with great content like this book. I guess it is just peoples need to be negative.
Covey has a style all of his own, and I really enjoy it. No one can please EVERYONE all of the time, so, listen to it for yourself and ignore those previous writers that have put this audio book down. They were obviously looking for a "spiderman" movie in an audio book. Not so.
All this to say that you should get the book. You will learn A LOT! Even if it is just a refresher after you have read the harcopy (which I have as well). Enjoy.
