This new audio set is a very special abridgement of two of Stephen R. Covey's best-selling business books, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 8th Habit, read by Dr. Covey himself. We've condensed the content of two entire books into just three hours of audio, but you'll still enjoy Dr. Covey's lessons on powerful personal change and how to incorporate his ideas into your life to fulfill your ultimate potential.

"The 7 Habits have the gift of being simple without being simplistic." (M.Scott Peck)
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.
Im new to the audio book thing and didnt relize that this book was only a taste of the book and it says if u like it please purchase the full lenght book. So I really wouldnt waste your $
If it would have included more of the original version of the book
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,
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!
The abridged version is quick and just hits the key points. Well worth your time. I will probably listen to the unabridged versions soon.
"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
