Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new foreword and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant and answer some of the most common questions he has received over the past 15 years.
This audio edition is the first ever unabridged recording of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Powerful, Effective Self-help
While a lot of reviewers dislike Covey narrating his own book I enjoyed it. He does have a bit of a monotonous tone that turns his narration from a reading into more of a lecture, but I believe that's the best way to narrate this book.
Also he is the author so you get the feeling that the way he narrates is the exact way he intended the book to be read.
No way. There is so much information in this book that I will need at least 2 more listens to grasp most of the lessons taught.
I find that most self-help books focus on one idea and cover it in-depth throughout the book. Covey tackles 7 ideas in this book and each idea has several sub ideas to them. Because of this the book should probably be listened to several times if your serious about applying his habits in your life. Definitely worth every penny of the cost.
If you do not study and follow this book. Scriptural centered but mentioned much. Like the Bible, if we all followed these simple and effective rules our planet would be a wonderful place.
One of the best books in business and personal ever written, but the narration was very, very slow. Listen to it on x1.25 speed and it'll sound about normal.
