Publisher's Summary

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.

This audio edition is the first ever unabridged recording of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

A classic all should read

Not what I expected, in a good way. The foreword is a little esoteric but once the habits themselves begin it became quite enjoyable for me.

Interesting Book

This book really makes you think, how to change and what it takes to change in life. The advises can be applied to different aspect of life. At times it was a bit boring... but the points there were made were useful and the example of everyday life make it easy to understand. #Audible1

A Self and Professional Development Staple!

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a staple within the self and professional development cannon.

One mustn't ignore the simplicity and harmony of Covey's text.

Here are his seven habits:

Habit 1: Be Proactive
Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind..
Habit 3: Put First Things First
Habit 4: Think Win-Win
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw

Life-Changing

I will re-read this over and over. I have already found success in applying several of the habits to my daily life at home, and at work. The wisdom here is that of many. I suggest reading this book in small chunks and taking notes throughout with intent to practice!

Rip Steve! Thank you

A must read for someone who tried everything

Getting focused on important tasks can be hard. Especially when our own mind is designed to proect us from stess and other negative things we perceive. I found this book really helpful for me to help focus on important tasks in my business #Audible1
