"The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is by now one of the best-selling books of all time." (Fortune)
Full of Aha! moments. Everything is presented so logically, and makes so much sense! I have never experienced so much wisdom packed into one story/book
To every one who wants to change for better , and make difference in their own and others life. Great Book
Maybe someone listening to something like this for the first time.
I was hoping to learn something I hadn't already heard someone one else advise.
boring, I couldn't even finish listening to it. Same old advise
I sorry for the low rating. It was hard to follow, to boring and same old advise. I wish they had returns on this site.
There is no structure in this book and the way it is read just makes me fall asleep. That would have to be corrected.
Some interesting insights, but to few for a better grade.
Just finished the book. I know I'm couple of years late but it is an amazing book. Especially when talking about emotional bank account.
Yes. There is so much information packed into this book, that sometimes you don't realize how profound something said is until you relisten to the audio book. Also, listening at different moments in your life will change how you see the content (I read this book as a teen, in college and now as a mom --- each stage of my life I gained something valuable).
In the latest listen, the section on paradigm shifts gave me insights in how I see my eldest son. My goal in listening this time around was similar to college... I was not expecting to get so much as a parent.
There aren't any "characters" per say however Stephen Covey is easy to listen to and a really good speaker.
There are so many. Because each habit builds on the last, work through them in order. I'd listen to the whole book then listen again in portions focusing on a bit at a time.
There is a reason why this book has been around for so long. Listen and find out why it still remains popular.
Audible on My BlackBerry Z30. Life doesn't get much better than this.I usually go for Sci-Fi and business oriented books.
Even if you're not in a management position, this book could help you learn how to relate and interact better with people around you.
The 21 Laws of Leadership follow the same idea that we gotta be principle and character focused to be successful at properly dealing with people.
This book is set up in a very productive way, there are such clear lines of progression that you can focus on one section without jumping accidentally into others.
The most important thing about this book is that it makes so much sense and it is observable and therefore testable. You see it in others, but the clincher is, if you are open enough, that you can see it in yourself.
Students, farmers, and all of I see, So I love this book
I think no book can compare this The 7 habits of Highly Effective People .
I see, if not. I will pass all obstacles of in my studying way.
Yes, I want works can be seen in the screen with the voice.

"The message is simple"
Like others on here I initially found the voice monotone and dry with none of the usual punch and uplift found in other personal improvement readings. But on reflection I think that this bland style works better in the long run. It allows you to listen, really listen to what he is saying rather than be short term uplifted. A long book taken at what seems a leisurely pace but I do not think it could have been shortened and still get the message across. This is a casserole not a microwave meal.
I'd known about this book for a long time and it was always on my list of books to read (listen to). I found the 7 habits fascinating. The age of the book does come across and it is a little preachy but Stephen Covey's research, conclusions and insights are staggering in their depth. Although you come away feeling that a lot of what he says is common sense, the vast majority of people, including myself, would never think in those terms. Stephen unravels what it is to be human and how to make the most of that gift. I can't believe anyone listening could fail to benefit hugely from the experience.
"7 Habits, constructive change not quick-fix"
I took the time to listen to the unabridged version. Audible could do with reviewing the encoding but other than that the book was excellent.
This book is required reading for managers in the 21st century as is the 8th habit. This was an easy listen (even the unabridged version) and Stephen Covey is a great narrator. I'd recommend this book to all.
i thought this was interesting and useful book. The behaviours (habits) make alot of sense
It is a tad preachy at the end. If your in a toss up between this and how to win friends and influence people i think the later is better
"Helped me focus on who I am"
brilliant book.Layed out principles that are common for all people and essential for success. it helped me to re-focus on what is important for me in life and how to reprioritise my life around my principals.
A must listen for anyone and everyone
If you have not yet read this book then you really should. It has been very influential and contains a wealth of ideas. If you only read one personal development book it should be this one. The audio book is well read by the author and is easy to follow and quite entertaining.
You can now have your cake and eat it. Having read a lot of management books, this is the one that will change your outlook on family and work. You will learn over time to do things differently and take control of those aspects of your life that at the moment might be controlling you.
The book is very readable and listening to Stephen Covey is even better.
"Get over the hangup - does NOT push religion"
There are a few reviewers who have written off the book because the author happens to merely mention - in one sentence in the prologue - that he is a Christian. Surely the problem is no more than if he had mentioned being an atheist? - Anyway it is irrelevant to the content of the book and has no bearing on the concept, which is well researched and solid. The author has presented to boards of directors of major international companies and organisations and they wouldn't buy into crap and this is in no way wishy-washy or spiritual, the principles are well set out and argued.
I let the voice - which some may find jarring - pass over me and listened to the content which was what I bought it for after all.
Very insightful and well organised.
As an open minded individual - as far as one may be - why are so many people so touchy as to junk an entire book that is well reviewed by many business leaders and thinkers (and others) simply because an author mentions that he/she has a belief system? Very odd methinks...perhaps there may be something in it. Must look deeper myself perhaps - shall look in the relevant Audible category for a scholarly work without a strong agenda in either direction methinks! - Any suggestions anyone?
"A great listen"
A very empowering book with lots of easy to do, useful ideas for leading a happier, more fulfilling life. Well worth a listen.
Nothing wrong with the book or the habits but this audio book has a crucial flaw - its read by the author who just isn't up to the job in my humble opinion. A few other reviewers mention this also so you've been warned!
