Some would say that this book is simple and just common sense, and I would agree. However, our culture is so severely lacking in common sense (natural law/understanding) that it has become uncommon. These concepts are simple and extremely necessary for anyone wanting to be an effective person, period.

This is the second time I've read this book. The first time was around 20 years ago. It has now become a classic, and for good reason. The concepts and practices laid out are pure gold. Truth cannot be quenched, only subverted for a short time. These 7 basic habits are certainly the key to growth and happiness. They are timeless. These principles not only apply to us as individuals, they apply to small business, corporate business, religious organizations and governments.

I can see how Tony Robbins and many of the other gurus of today have built their teachings around these 7 basic habits. They are human guidelines for peace, prosperity and happiness. They parallel the teachings of Christ and of Buddha.

This graphical/interactive edition is a nice touch. I especially enjoyed the last chapter where Mr. Covey gives answers to questions he is often asked today. He gives a lot of insight here regarding what his experience has been over the last 25 years, since the original book was published. If your life is not up to par right now, I would highly recommend this book. It is a classic and should be taught in the classroom.

My daughter brought this book home from school years ago and really enjoyed it. I had read several books in this genre; Rich Dad Poor Dad, How to Win Friends and Influence People, The Richest Man in Babylon, Think and Grow Rich. All of those offerings had gems of knowledge that if learned and accepted into practice WILL help you achieve your goals (and don't limit your scope to your workplace). The key is accepting into practice -- habitualizing.
The quintessential habits, which are laid out in this book are done so in poignant fashion. You WILL be inspired.
This new interactive edition is fantastic and I'm glad I found it.
You want to get your life in order?
Snag a copy and hop to it.
Cheers!

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has been around for over twenty-five years, and I myself read those principles several times over; in fact, I have attended numerous seminars titled the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People as licensed by the same authors. But it had been a while since I last read about them, so it was time for a refresher.

I was not disappointed. Several of the principles still ring true today, and perhaps that’s because they stand the test of the time. As the book continually reminds me, the desire for change must spring from within, and the motives and the means must be thoroughly examined. The book is selfless too, it talks about understanding other people and emphasizing with them. It talks about how people can work toward something that is bigger, rather than try to win over a shrinking field at the other’s cost. Sometimes this book made me teary, in a good way.

The poster-like graphics were visually stunning and elegant. My only complaint is that on a computer screen, some graphics have words that are far too small to read comfortably.

I heartily recommend this book!

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey is not a book to just be read through but one to be studied. I mean sitting at your desk with pencil and notebook in hand kind of study. I would even suggest a buddy to study the book at the same time. Someone to bounce some ideas and experiences and convictions off of, someone to be accountable to.

When I read a book I often like to write a few favorite quotes from the book, however, if I’d done that with this book, I would have just basically rewritten the book. There is so much “food for thought” in this book! Don’t borrow this book from someone, get your own copy! You will want to reread it a few times for sure. Seldom do I read a book for a second time, but I will undoubtedly reread this one! Or more like study it.

If you are looking for a book that will help your grow as a person, stop looking and order this book. You will not be disappointed!

This book has something for everyones self development. Do you want to remake yourself into a better person, improve your relationship with a spouse, develop better communication skills with you kids, refine your business expertise, enhance your leadership capabilities, prioritize your life, I could go on and on. To quote the book, you learn, that the gate to change can only be opened from the inside. The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People is very well written, There are stories, examples, forms, diagrams and even interactive areas within the book to help you understand concepts. The book breaks down how to be effective in whatever goal you choose. You learn how to prioritize, expand listening skills (great to help you understand your children and spouse), why you must admit mistakes, and how what you say impacts others. By the end of the book you will understand how to develop good attitudes and a winning behavior. I highly recommend his book.
