The stories are thoughtful, simple and interesting. The overall layout of the book is clear and straightforward to use for future reference. The topics are not altogether novel, but the presentation is revolutionary.

The author opens each of 14 chapters on principled leadership with a story about how he executed on it, so it is a little bit 'look what I did'. But here's the comparison:
Wear glasses that work = paradigms by Covey.
Carry your own weather = ditto
Behave your way to credibility = Speed of Trust, Covey Jr.
Play your roles well = Habit 2/3 by Covey.
See the Tree not just the seedling = Habit 2
Think we, not me = Habit 4, Covey
Emotional Bank Accounts = Covey
Examine your motives = Habit 2
Talk less, listen more = Habit 5
Extend Trust = Speed of trust
And a couple of chapters that surround a number.
So my advice is get the originals, they're better. Ironically.
The author sets out to get you to look at yourself in a work setting and work towards improving your relationships.
He breaks his theories down into 15 categories, for example "Examine your real motives". In each section he gives examples and techniques to encourage the reader to open up and look at themselves.
Throughout he draws parallels to a Jean-Paul Satre play which I didn't think was necessary and, in my view, didn't add anything to the book. The author is very good at drawing practical examples and didn't need a fictional one not connected to the work environment.
I read the book fairly quickly and there are no sections that seemed to drag.
Did I learn anything? I think I reinforced my failings but whether I can reduce them is another matter...
