Publisher's Summary

Book summary: The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, by Stephen R. Covey.

For the price of a coffee and a time investment of roughly two percent of your day, I believe the wisdom in this audiobook to be well worth its value. Here's my sales pitch: The writing will not be quite up to the same standard; if you need a story behind each point to reinforce it, then please, go and buy the original. However, if like me, you aren't a fan of the "fluff" that comes along with most books and would much rather skip to the nuggets of wisdom and actionable content in a very easily absorbed and understood way including key takeaways - then I believe this is the audiobook for you. If you already have the original but would like a more "straight-to-the-point" guide to go alongside it, this is perfect. 

Inside this audiobook, you’ll learn:

  • How to become proactive instead of reactive.
  • How to write your own personal mission statement.
  • Efficient principles for personal management.
  • How to always reach win-win solutions.
  • How to become a highly effective person.

Save yourself time and money. I am only releasing summaries of the books that have made a true positive impact in my life. If you decide to purchase, I truly hope you enjoy and benefit from it.

Please note that this summary is not the original book and is meant to be listened to as a supplement to the original.

Easier to understand than the original.

Great for a quick to understand, if you do not have the time to listen to the entire book. It sums it up and easier to understand than the original.

Impressive!

This summary is a great refresher to the actual book. It focuses on the major points outlined by the author. It is a quick to understand which generalizes the major themes of the seven habits. Impressive!

Just The Basics

I appreciated this basic outline to the book that has been the longest unread on my bookshelves. The concepts were not new to me ,but its nice to really know what is in the book with the fluff.

Great Overview!

The 7 Habits Of Highly Effect people is very deep and requires a lot of revisitation and practice to master. This overview by In a Nutshell Publishing is not enough by itself, but is a great way to get an overview of the material which is hard to “dive right into” as the original book and even the official abridged version are very dense. Listening to this great overview several times before, during, and after reading the material seems very helpful in solidifying the material in one’s mind.
