Publisher's Summary

A legacy work from the multimillion copy best-selling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People -hailed as the #1 Most Influential Business Book of the Twentieth Century - The 3rd Alternative introduces a breakthrough approach to conflict resolution and creative problem solving. One of Time magazine’s 25 most influential Americans, Dr. Stephen R. Covey has helped millions transform their lives. In The 3rd Alternative Covey turns his formidable insight to creative problem solving, presenting a powerful new way to resolve professional and personal difficulties and create solutions to great challenges in organizations and society.

The 3rd Alternative transcends the traditional solutions to conflict - my way or your way - by forging a path toward a creative solution - a third option - that is far better than what either party proposes. Covey profiles in this work a wide range of innovative 3rd Alternative thinkers in fields including business, politics, law, education, policing, health, and family. Through stories and examples, Covey tells listeners how to build strong relationships with diverse individuals based on the notion of winning together and demonstrates how this can generate innovative solutions and growth.

Beyond compromise, beyond mediation, The 3rd Alternative represents a radical, creative new way of thinking. Dr. Covey considers this his legacy work - a groundbreaking, but practical work that demonstrates why 3rd Alternative thinking represents the supreme opportunity of our time.

    Story
    "Hard to listen to."
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator tried to sound like Stephen Covey but his lows were too low and I found myself adjusting the volume throughout.

    Story
    "Good So Far Except for the Narrator"

    Haven't finished listening to it yet, about half way through. So far it is okay, would recommend 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by S. R. Covey if you already haven't read it. Just a lot of examples of win win thinking. Main problem with this audiobook is the Narrator. I think he would be good for books of fiction, not with this book. He makes it hard to listen too. Slowly listening to the book despite him, but he makes it difficult. I can only listen to him in small chunks. I would avoid any book narrated by him in the future.

    Story
    "Life changing!"
    What made the experience of listening to The 3rd Alternative the most enjoyable?

    This book opened my eyes and intro used me to the third alternative. Covey teaches us something that we have always known was there and wanted to live. His words of wisdom can bless families, businesses, and politicians.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The true principles taught.
