Product Description

Review

"In "The 3rd Alternative", Stephen Covey urges us to chart a course beyond the suboptimal solutions to all our crises - beyond left and right, and beyond the many false choices in front of us. "The 3rd Alternative" is a wise and welcome echo of Einstein's warning that the problems we're facing today cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them." --Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief of the AOL Huffington Post Media Group

Format: Hardcover
No question, this is Stephen Covey's latest and greatest tome. Please read it cover-to-cover, then re-read, finally put it into practice.

I loved the author's 'Teach to Learn' summary at the end of each chapter, encouraging the reader to learn from this book by teaching it to someone else.

Branding the book as 'the supreme opportunity of our time' is no exaggeration. I found practical applications in business, at home, in society - in fact everywhere.

Finally, you might also want to read The Opposable Mind - How Successful Leaders Win Through Integrative Thinking, by Roger Martin, where I first came across 'The 3rd Way' concept.

This is a stunning book that takes your breath away.

whilst it's in fact just a much more in depth analysis (with GREAT examples) of Habits 4,5, and 6 of the 7 Habits, it puts it into a simple, powerful, easy to understand and apply format, and breaks it up into different situations.

If only we could get this taught in every school, workplace, and particularly to the unemployed and disempowered people in our society, our society would be a totally different place.

Buy it, read it, keep reading it, but it for your friends and colleagues and encourage them to do the same.

Looking forward to Sean Covey releasing a version for teenagers!

Even though I bought the "7 habits of highly effective people" I gave it to my daughter and never got to read it. When I came across this book, I knew I had to buy it. It's like that proverb "When the pupil is ready, the Master will appear"
