I did not like how most of the best solutions to the mental disorders you were not able to perform at home yet he spends a lot of time talking about them and how you most likely will not have access to them unless you see a professional. Does have some interesting information in it.

Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new foreword and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant and answer some of the most common questions he has received over the past 15 years.

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.
