    "Random notes"

    I enjoyed listening to Covey read his own book. Not too fast, not too slow and monotonous. I found myself jotting down random notes from the book as I listened. I will certainly listen to it again.

    "painful, but not without worth."

    Hard to get through at times when he reiterates simple concepts ad museum. Best listened to at double speed because narration is slow. It is not without worth, but time invested makes it low on value. Long slow read to get a few good parts that really resonate. Paper version would be better so that it is easyier to skip thru and make notes.

    "life impacting"

    A truly valuable tool, not merely a book, that can potentiallty transform your life into a truly effective interdependent member of society. It provided great analogies, visualization techniques, application tools, and real world translatability. I hear it every night to remind myself constantly the actions I must take daily to become and remain highly effective.

    "Lynn"

    This book has helped me in more areas of my life than I imagined it could have. I would highly recommend it. It is an added bonus that Mr. Covey narrates it himself.

    "Very good information"

    You really can't have too many outside distractions while listening to this book. The reader is monotone making the book hard to listen to. The content is very good and worth the struggle.

    "Mostly common sense and fairly religious"

    I was back and forth the whole time with this book. There is certainly a sprinkling of useful insights. However most of the book is a long drawn out explanation of what he calls "common" traits among non "correct" people followed by an explanation of the "correct" way which most of us already implement. Sure there are a few of us out there who are totally off track. I am willing to bet if you are considering buying this book you are probably not one of these people!

    I was also very put off by all of the biblical references and quotations. I don't want or need any of these oppressive ideas to guide a successful life for myself.

    "Dragged on and on..."

    I've read the book before many years ago (just needed a refresher). The principles taught in this book are truly helpful and I highly recommend READING it. Stephen's narration just made me sleepy. I found mind drifting off, I just couldn't stay focused.

    "Great to read and even greater to listen to!"

    I know it is not the right thing to do to write a review before finishing the book , but I couldn't help it! I have read , attended trainings and workshops about the seven habits , but I still think this audio book is an absolute must! Stephen R. Covey himself narrates and he is not only a great narrator, he is also so passionate about the subject he spent most of his adult life studying and teaching.

    "I Believe This Book Could Improve Any Life"

    There is so much wisdom collected in these pages, you would need to be exceptionally knowledgeable not to be able to gain from reading Dr. Coveys book.

    This is the best explanation of principle-based living I've seen. I have listened to some parts of it more than 20 times and will probably continue. I never seem to stop getting more from it.

    It has helped me to understand and correct many of the biggest mistakes I have been making, and the difference is incredible. There's no magic or voodoo or tricks here, just pure common sense and wisdom.

    This book has transformed my life for the better, forever!

    Thank you Dr. Stephen R. Covey
