Publisher's Summary

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 six 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.

    "Good principles. Audio program could use work. "

    Good principles. Audio program could use more work. Starts with 8th habit, which seemed strange. Editing seemed poorly done. Excessive white noise between chapters. Where is the accompanying guide?

    "Great information."

    The info was good and I am intrigued to see how well it helps. It did seems strangely preachy though.

    Story
    "Chuckling or sighing"
    Would you listen to The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People & The 8th Habit (Special 6-Hour Abridgement) again? Why?

    Maybe. I most likely will not listen to it within six months, but I may in the future to refresh what I heard if needed.


    Any additional comments?

    The chuckling or sighing is annoying. It is as if the reader either chuckling or sighing when he says something "amusing" in his mind. This takes away from the message which was delivered. However, I like the conversational style of delivering this message/book. I also enjoy the material covered.

    "Useful and Engaging"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People & The 8th Habit (Special 6-Hour Abridgement) to be better than the print version?

    Not better. If you will only get one or the other, you need to get the book. However, using both print and audio is great.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. It is useful listening to a section and having some time to reflect before listening to the next section.

    "What a mess!"

    This audio book meanders all over the place and never gets to the point. With a specific title like this, I assumed it would be broken down into clear chapters and lessons; but no. This is a huge missed opportunity and a waste of time. He just goes on and on about "voice" and how contemporary companies are terrible for not letting people be their authentic selves. Very disappointed.

    Story
    "Good but weak"
    What did you love best about The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People & The 8th Habit (Special 6-Hour Abridgement)?

    Not woven too well. Hard to pick out the seven among the eighth habit even though I knew them well. It was more confusing than enlightening.


    What did you like best about this story?

    He attempted to add the seven habits and eighth together but just didn't pull it off as I expected.


    What does Stephen R. Covey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice emphasizes points that he intended to make that you wouldn't read.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Put it all together from the seven and that's how you go from good to great. Mostly, find your voice so you can help others find theirs.

    "Excellent as Covey used to be"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People & The 8th Habit (Special 6-Hour Abridgement) to be better than the print version?

    I read the 8th habit in print version but this audibook is a compilation of this book plus a walkthrough the other 7 habits. Thats why I enjoy it so much


    What did you like best about this story?

    The compilation and walk-through the 8 habits


    Any additional comments?

    Widely recommended

    "Excellent Advice!!"
    If you could sum up The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People & The 8th Habit (Special 6-Hour Abridgement) in three words, what would they be?

    Stephen Covey will remain a legend!! Even though he isn't around to continue adding to his infinite wisdom, his teachings will flutter through the minds for all eternity. Remarkable individual!!
