Waste of time and money

Very short, lack of information.
I didn’t gain anything out of the book.

Don’t waste your time

Not a reflection

I finished the full book before I started this....
I turned it off after about the first 3 minutes.
This did not reflect the essence of the original book. I recommend investing your time in the full book.

Great book. Summary is lacking.

There is more advertisement and that disclaimer than actual summary. I was hoping the summary chapters were summaries of the actual chapters in the book or there were seven chapters/summaries, one for each of the seven habits. The summary is definitely lacking structure.
The recommendation of other best selling books is nice.

Boring, boring, boring

What disappointed you about The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: By Stephen Covey -- Summary?

I was hoping to have something a little more engaging, but the narrator is downright robotic. Self help books and summaries should have some feeling behind them.

Has The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: By Stephen Covey -- Summary turned you off from other books in this genre?

Maybe, we'll see how I feel next time I want a summary.

What didn’t you like about John Steele’s performance?

Very robotic. No feeling in it.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: By Stephen Covey -- Summary?

Honestly, I listened to maybe 5 minutes of it. Couldn't even take the rest.

Need a rundown of "7 habits"? Read a website.

What would have made The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: By Stephen Covey -- Summary better?

Several of the "chapters" in this summary are just marketing for other products. More real content would be needed to take this anywhere beyond 1 or 2 stars. Apart from that, it simply confirms my worst impressions of the self-help genre.

What could Save Time Summaries have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

This review is exceptionally shallow. It does not present any arguments from the book (which I assume are there) - almost only reads the chapter headlines and sales pitches aloud.

Did John Steele do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

There are no characters. The question does not apply.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: By Stephen Covey -- Summary?

Again, no scenes. The review is so short, that I would have cut nothing. Additional material was needed for me to get much out of this.

Ludacrious

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I thought this was the actual book.

the actual book

How could the performance have been better?

I could have bought the book

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: By Stephen Covey -- Summary?

Empoyer Approved! LOL

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

We are studying this book in a book club format at work. Members of the class have been invited by the CFO and are future stars of the company. As the HR Administrator I have been included in the class. I love how we are able to take 2 hours each week and discuss the book, how it relates to our jobs, and how it relates to our lives. Excellent motivational material.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: By Stephen Covey -- Summary?

I enjoy all of the life relating stories Stephen adds to his book. I can relate personally and professionally.

Very poor

I recommend you don't purchase this book I have done several courses, have read 4 texts, was looking for a useful summary I could share with staff, this is definitely not it. Delete material! Overall rating zero but can't get away with that hence 1 rating.
