This is a great audio book for anyone in a marriage relationship. I have been happily married for over 40 years and yet you can always glean great ideas and terrific reminders of what is really important in a marriage. Eternal principles never change. Thank you to the Coveys for these reminders. I give it 5*s

I didn't have the highest of hopes for this book going in, but I have to admit, it was insightful and I definitely learned and became a better man and husband from listening to this!
I thought that this book is another wonderful product by Stephen Covey.
I’ve been a fan of his for years and have lived my life by The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, so this book was right up my alley. I only wish that I had read it before the end of my 5 year relationship with “the woman of my dreams who I just knew was going to be the wife that I had always dreamed of”. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to this book in time and implement all of the great suggestions into our relationship. I am in another great relationship now, and I’ll be sure to add this book and the 7 Habits to our relationship and hopefully marriage.
Keep up the great work Stephen Covey!!! You’re awesome!!!
Stephen Covey...the name speaks volumes...I love Stephen Covey and he didn't disappoint; he never does!
I was not sure what to expect. It was presented in an unexpected manner which kept it interesting.I really appreciated the application and examples provided for the principles.
I've read other books of Stephen Covey and always learn a new way of looking at things. He uses his `Seven Habits` and applies it to marriage and family. A great, easy to understand book with his wife giving the introductions and telling mistakes they've made along the way. Enjoyable to listen to.
Covey's wrote giving the introduction
Him leaving her on the roadside with no shoes
I wasn't really able to get through much of this audio book. The intro, as read by the author and his wife, seemed very surface value and fluffy. "This is how you should feel and what you should do if you were a good Godly person and life was perfect." Silly and idealistic. The rest of the book may be totally different, and it may be better in book form, but I just couldn't get past the intro and first chapter.
I brought this for a long car ride with my husband. He was a good sport about agreeing to listen to it. However, it was so painfully boring that we agreed to just stop the book and talk. In the end, it was probably a better result for our marriage. We are a young-ish couple with young children. Perhaps it is better for a much older couple. It felt like we were getting advice from the Cleavers.
"Great philosophy - very short"
I love the Covey way, but this is very compressed and too short. The seven habits book covers almost all of the ground, but there are a few anecdotes that are included here.
