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.

"The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is by now one of the best-selling books of all time." (Fortune)
Very useful book. Not only about effectiveness as the title would suggest but rather management and personal development in general. I'm starting over to listen through this one once more immediately. Strongly recommended.
the audio book was slow, but maybe by design. Mr. Corey's delivery is almost too rythmic and consistent. the content of the book is excellent.
I honestly couldn't even finish this one and I was really looking to reading it. He has some great points, but they are often not fleshed out. Instead, what the author spends most of his time on is spelling out the simplest concepts in the books with really long, unbelievable anecdoctal stories. This book would be better served in physical form so that you could skim over the pointless examples and spend more time reflecting on the worthwhile points.
I will always comeback and reference this book to make sure I really follow the principles thought in it.
It was really inspiring and life changing for me.
This book is extremely insightful and has given me a new view on many of the things that I do. The author narrates wonderfully – I never got bored. I have already recommended the book to friends and family and I plan to read it many more times and study it in the future.
Looking back on the book, I don't know why I never thought about things this way before. it makes so much sense. this book has shifted my paradigm, altered my perspective, and changed the way I communicate with my family, friends, and coworkers for the better.
A GREAT book!
The author explores the relationship between individuals how they respond each other. He explains the reasons for the lack of communication and how to make communication better in all aspects of you life.
I love this book. I read it years ago. so the audio version was a refresher for me. I found, this time, that it reads more like a guide or instruction set to be referred to on an as needed basis. revelation upon revelation...chapter after chapter.
Fifteen years later, the book has a new meaning. Although the performance is good, there are some editing artifacts "please change the CD" that are unacceptable.
