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.

I thought I had all the answers, and while reading this book, a whole new set of questions arose. I feel inspired to grow and to learn more. For that, this lecture was worth every second invested.
Age 30, love history. Mostly war stuff.
Long and in depth but phenomenal narration. I learned a lot and plan on listening to it again. It's a lot to take in at once.
