    "Abridged Vs. UnAbridged"

    When wanting to address family issues, does one want go about it half-effort by reading the abridged version. It would be great if there was an audio version of the full text.

    "I recommend this highly"

    Since I didn't grow up in a home with these principles, it was indeed benificial to me as a parent to listen to Covey's teaching of these "7 habits" and give numerous applications and illustrations (from his own family as well as others), giving me mental images to work with. I'd already been exposed to his original 7 habits book, but this one wasn't a waste. This listen was worth the time and is already making a difference in my family.

    Mom, Science Teacher, Kid at Heart. My 52 mile drive to work gives me time to finally stretch my brain. Audible has been a wonderful treat! Thanks Bob!

    "Buy the UNabridged Book"
    What would have made The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families better?

    I've read this book before. It was so powerful I wanted to revisit it's teachings again. The abridged version left much to be desired. I felt the potent message was lost. I'll have to dig out the book read it cover-to-cover over the summer.


    Any additional comments?

    Please ask the Covey Institute to record an unabridged version.

    "Great summary of the habits applied to familylife"

    I really like this audiobook and wish the unabridged version had been available in audio. I have previousy listened to several of Steven Coveys books and think this one gave a good summary of the 7 principles of effectiveness. The only thing I think is slightly negative is that Covey in most cases uses the same axamples as he uses in earlier books. As one who listens a lot to his teaching it would have given me a new dimention to get "fresh" examples to reflect on.

    All in all this audio inspires me and give practical advice to be a better and more understanding parent; to build the "familyteam" :-)

    "love this book!"

    This book is understandable, relatable, real world family problem solving techniques . It has already shown me how I "thought" I was listening to my kids, but I truly wasn't, I was reactive before they even had a chance to finish what they were saying to me. This is a life changing book.

    "A bit redundant, but very good"

    I thought this book was very good. A lot of the stories from the 7 Habits were used again to put into a family context, so in that regard it was a bit redundant. On the other hand, hearing them again really strengthened my understanding of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

    "Life changing principles"

    I liked the step by step instructions along with the personal testimonies of people that have experienced and practiced the proven concepts. I recommend this to any one who wants to set their relationships on a positive path toward unity and understanding.

    So many concepts that help families of all types. How to work through tough situations within our families, how to have good communication.

    "same book as the 7 Habits of Highly Effective"

    I like this book a lot and I think it's a valuable thing to read but it's essentially the same book as The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. It was a waste of money. You're better off buying the other book and just applying it to your family. All the content is the same
