Publisher's Summary

In the more than 15 years since its publication, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has become an international phenomenon. Tens of millions of people in business, government, schools, and families have dramatically improved their lives and organizations by applying the principles of Stephen R. Covey's classic book.

The world, though, is a vastly changed place. The challenges we all face in our relationships, families, professional lives, and communities are of an entirely new order of magnitude.

Being effective as individuals and organizations is no longer merely an option. But in order to thrive, innovate, excel, and lead in what Covey calls the new Knowledge Worker Age, we must build on and move beyond effectiveness. The call of this new era in human history is for greatness; it's for fulfillment, passionate execution, and significant contribution.

Accessing the higher levels of human genius and motivation in today's new reality requires a sea change in thinking. The crucial challenge of our world today is this: to find our voice and inspire others to find theirs. It is what Covey calls the 8th Habit.

So many people feel frustrated, discouraged, unappreciated, and undervalued, with little or no sense of voice of unique contribution. The 8th Habit is the answer to the soul's yearning for greatness, the organization's imperative for significance and superior results, and humanity's search for its "voice". This groundbreaking audiobook of next level thinking gives a clear way to finally tap the limitless value-creation promise of the Knowledge Worker Age.

Covey's new audiobook will transform the way we think about ourselves and our purpose in life, about our organizations, and about humankind. Just as The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People helped us focus on effectiveness, The 8th Habit shows us the way to greatness.

NOTE: On the cover and in the introduction, the audio mentions that a free bonus DVD is included. It is NOT included with this audio; however, it is available for free at the following FranklinCovey website: www.StephenCovey.com.

Listen to Stephen Covey's groundbreaking The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

    "Great addition to the 7 habits"
    Would you listen to The 8th Habit again? Why?

    Most definitely. This book continues the teaching from teh 7 habits book in a clear and seamless way that makes it seem to be the missing chapter.


    What other book might you compare The 8th Habit to and why?

    The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

    "Just could not get into it"
    Any additional comments?

    I forced myself to listen to a few chapters of this book, maybe about 2-3 hours. I skipped a few chapters looking for something interesting and with substance. This book was nothing like the 7 habits. This stuff was just too esoteric, too out there. This book is more about relationships, spiritual intelligence, becoming a balanced person, finding your own "voice" and helping others find their own voice. Not my cup of tea.

    "It's an unfinished book"

    Not only is this book a big review of the 7 habits of most effective people, but it also is not as polished as the previous book; the more one advances through the chapters, the easier it is to notice it.

    "Worth the time"

    Good read, but I felt like most of book was more of an overview of the 7 habits. I didn't come away feeling rejuvenated and with a new sense of purpose this time around like with the 7 habits. Still, it was worth the time and I do recommend it. If nothing else, it served as a good reminder and call to action.

    "Putting it together"

    Stephen Covey has a gift for seeing why ... If that is your desire this is for you. Other books like the 5 love languages are in the same vein as this.

    "The Essence of Principle-centered Leadership"

    The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is my personal bible and I really didn't think that the 8th Habit would offer much more insight. I have read and listened to them both over 100 times. The 8th Habit is truly next step in your quest for self mastery. If you have read the 7 Habits then the 8th Habit is a must listen.

    "I love his the principals he presents"

    I try to live my life by the 7 habits. The 8th habit seemed to rehash a lot of the 7 habits, but seems a little more business driven. Overall I pretty much enjoy anything that Steven covey puts out.
