"The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is by now one of the best-selling books of all time." (Fortune)
This is the bible on effectiveness. Easy read. It was an opportunity for reflection on the quality of interactions with other people and the hurdles to attaining the desired outcome.
Everything that says in this book, make sense. I just dont understand why I act in the other way must of the time. I recommend this book to everybody, it is a mine of knowledge, it will help you in your professional and must important in your personal life.
To be honest, I was a bit hesitant to get this book because of the reviews, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I was even afraid to finish the book too soon, as there were so many insightful and inspiring messages that I never wanted to miss.
I was also worried about the narration but his reading was so excellent that I couldn't stop listening.
[I realized how much we differ even if we are looking at or thinking about the same thing. ]
I now wish I read it sooner, as it would have helped me a lot with a lot of things.
I am not even married yet, I am not even spritual but this book is just perfect, you do not have to have kids or to be involved in religious stuff to understand what he has to say.
I am definately going to get his next book - the 8th habit. [no doubt at all], I can't wait!
his 7 habits and the explanations make sense, I had to agree with him all the time while I was listening, and I loved the way he conveyed his ideas with lots of explanations and examples.
You will have to listen to what he has to say before you truly understand why he is saying what he is saying, I guess.
So, I guess this book will be worth it! Just get it!
Even If you do not agree with me on this, you will later on I guess.
There are so many things to learn!!!!!!!!!!!!
This book was a required reading homework assignment for a Leadership training event. I loved the book and found myself wishing I had read it years ago. It applies to everything in everyday life. Take the time to read this book.
Some people are just good at managing people, some are great technical workers and some are great entrepreneurs. This book will help the average line worker become a good leader, and an owner of a company get the highest level of efficiency from employees.
I tried reading this book and found it read like a text book - what a difference to have Steven Covey himself narate what is written!
I loved this book, learnt from it and hope that I will be able to put in practise what I have learnt.
Thank you very much!
Completely enjoyed this book. I listened to the audio every time I was in my car. Author gives great tips and excellent life examples so that reader/listener can get a clear understanding of the author meaning. Every step can work in all areas of life. There is so much to learn and apply that I am glad this is an audio book so that I can listen again in a few months.
This book has been around for some time and the lessons are still pertinent for anyone who wants to enjoy a more fulfilling life. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because the author, himself, narrates-which is a mistake- his teeth whistle and his pace was too fast. He should have hired a professional narrator.
Maybe it doesn't quite live up to the hype anymore because it has been emulated so much. I find much of the advice here in the realm of common sense, or at least for me. Anyone who enjoys this book may be interested in learning more about Buddhist philosophy, as it is touched on here without being labeled as such. While it is interesting to hear concepts labeled in clever ways, I found some of the catch phrases, devices, and labeling a bit gimmicky. Overall, worth a read/listen. Also beware, not the most engaging narration.
This timeless classic is beautifully read by the Author
Every-time I listen I learn a little more
"Simple home truths we all need to hear"
This book is well read and easy to understand. I am likely to listen to it again, not because it was too complex, but because the principles set out in it are so fundamental that it seems to me appropriate to start each day remembering the principles explained in the book. Don't expect new pearls of wisdom: here you will find all the home truths that pop-psychology omits - the simple truths about human beings - I certainly needed to hear it.
I would recommend this to anyone !
This is a good book but I have enjoyed others in the same sector far more. I would recommend it but there are others that I would read first.
"What a lot of fluff"
The hype around this book is huge but it does not engage me one bit. No intro it just goes straight into complicated deep talking which makes no sense..I listened to the first 15 minutes 3 times and it still lost me. Worst audio book available.
Very interesting and listen and enjoyed listening to the book. Shall listen again in the future.
Didn't really have characters in this book.
Passionate and enlightened on the subject.
A little too deep to take in one sitying but I looked forward to the next chapter each time.
Very good listen thanks
"Excellent, deep, thought provoking"
Well worth the listening time, I thought it was excellent at promoting inward thought and self evaluation.
"A must read"
A fantastic book, I would highly recommend this, even if just for listenability, (he does have a very listenable voice!!!). I have listened to this twice already and am trying to fit in a third time, to make sure that I don't forget what he is trying to make me understand and which is a very life awareness teaching as well as a business effective teaching. The world has lost an important guide and I have no doubt that his teaching will endure time and that his contemporaries will continue the good work. Lots of love to Stephen Covey and thanks for what he has delivered.
The author mentioning God put me off
This isn't for me. Mentioning faith in God just did not wash with the atheist that is me.
"Positive and well intentioned-long when unabridged"
I found it quite difficult to listen to this book, as although Stephen Covey is an amazing man, I found the content was unnecessarily padded out. perhaps, I need to listen to it more times. Pleased it is the author himself speaking - it makes all the difference to hear the author's voice, as though he is speaking to me.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
