    "perfect audio book"

    The audio quality is perfect. Easy to listen in a noisy car. The audio consists of 2 parts: the 7 habits and the 8 habit. The 7 habits is the best part. Key information. This abridged version is a very good summary of the book The 7 habits. Spoken by Stephen Covey himself: pleasant voice.

    "Get the FULL version of 7 Habits"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If it would have included more of the original version of the book


    Any additional comments?

    7 Habits of Highly Effective People changed my life! I wanted to refresh and listen to again on my road trip & decided on the unabridged version because of a comment that I read recommending it, They wrote that they preferred this version because it wasn't as long but still good if not better. I cannot agree with that at all. The unabridged version cut out many details and one in particular that I was wanting to listen to again & that is the part about emotional bank accounts. If wondering which to choose pick the original you won't regret it,

    "Great for abridged version"

    It's hard to condense the full book into 3 hours, but that's expected. Considering what has to be packed into this shorter version it's well worth it, particularly for a quick refresher!

    "Worth it"

    The abridged version is quick and just hits the key points. Well worth your time. I will probably listen to the unabridged versions soon.

    "Great Listen"

    I wish there were more abridged versions of great books to help cut down on listening times. This is a high points option of classic read.

    "Not as good as complete version"

    Part 1 - 7 habits was ok with concise summary but part 2 was not up to what you can expect from Dr Covey.

    I would suggest listening to complete versions instead of this part meal approach
