    "LIfe changing"

    When I first heard this book a few months back I said to myself, "If I had learned these principles years ago I would have been able to re-shape and forgo so much of suffering, bumps and emotional bruises me life has gone through." In short this is timeless masterpiece and should be revisited time and time again. I cannot understand the naive and disinterested comments I have read concerning this classic.

    "Obvious suggestions"

    Nothing earth-shattering here.
    Maybe good ideas for younger people.
    Maybe good review for older people.

    "Great Sleep Aid"

    The book I'm sure has some great messages to convey, unfortunately the author's voice drones on in such a way that it is extremely hard to not nod off mid sentence! I listened to half the book and gave up when I realized I couldn't remember anything he had said in the preceding hour. Great book - horrible narration.

    "Good Book if Good means Bad"

    I feel a little generous in my rating of 1 star. Now taking from the description this quote...

    " 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."

    One would assume this book to contain good advice but better... "proven principles". I will give the author credit for researching psycology, but I'm curious if he understood it?
    His advice for the most part was either simplistic or true truths littered with false truths. At times I wanted to whince, it was like listening to someone saying subliminal advertising is a proven fact. In the end I couldn't get through the whole CD, the advice started to make me feel a little more idiotic. I think a lot of it did end up as pop psycology.
    IN summary, I'll say the book would be comparable to saying...
    "Your biggest fault is you can't take critizism from people smarter then you"

    A GREAT EMETIC!

    "Are you serious?"

    I don't understand how this book has become so popular. It's amazing how mere common knowledge can be exaggerated, twisted, packaged, then sold. It was painful to get through this one.

    Since becoming a mom, I can hardly find time to read. But my commute still creates time for audiobooks!

    "Book is a waste of time, planners are worth it"

    What a waste of time! The book is almost all stories, a disappointingly small amount of information. I bought a FranklinCovey planner and it came with a ten-page summary of the 7 Habits and it was more informative than the whole book (or what I could sit through). Plus the reader has a really annoying voice. The 7 Habits philosophy does apply to the 21st century--but the author and reader give it a much more aged feel.
