I am a great fan of Dr Stephen R Covey, and so I buy his older works to see how his ideas developed.

This book, published in 1970, was essentially written for his church (LDS), but don't let that put you off (although why that should I don't know).

I have now seen how his philosophies 'started', seen their origins and discovered how much thought has gone into what developed between 1970 and 2011 with his publishing of The 3rd Alternative.

Spend a couple of pounds and discover where Dr Covey "came from", more about him, and how he was able to educate people in a way that millions have found to be incredibly effective. It may only be academic research but it's worth the time.

More Than 7 Habits 4 Aug. 2000
By "chet-el" - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the original from which Covey based all his later 7 Habits books, writings, seminars, etc. Much more powerful than expected, this is not a book for the squeamish. If you're afraid to improve, if you're afraid to make your life enormously successful, then stay away from this book. If you want to know what First Things First means, here's a great place to start.

A hidden treasure of straight-forward inspiration 7 May 2002
By Craig L. Adams - Published on
Format: Paperback
I read this book for the first time back in 1980 when Steven R Covey was not a household name. It helped me to ACT where I had previously only THOUGHT about making changes in my life. I found that for me, it was a life changing event. I read it again in 2001 and it had the same effect. It amazes me that the council and advice offered within would be as applicable today as in 1980. That's the power of this book. It was deeper and wider than imagined and I believe it to be one of the best self-help books of all time when dealing with life in a spiritual realm.

Great application of spiritual principles to everyday life. 8 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I found this was very applicable Covey-ese in a spiritual setting. It made religious principles that I feel strongly about, more realistic for day-to-day situations. Although sometimes the advice was a little simplistic, it was generally very well thought out, and realistic.

One of the BEST books I've ever read! 15 April 2005
By Track Mom - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book has changed my life more than any other non-scriptural book. Covey's views and suggestions are so right and so clear. I wish I had followed his discipline suggestions sooner, now that I know my teenage son has ADHD and OCD. I just thought he wasn't talking to me, with my kind of child. His principles apply to everyone. Kindness, patience and PRACTICE are the key. This is only a drop in the well of knowledge in this book. Everything from communication with God in prayer to teasing is addressed.
Life-Changing Book 16 Dec. 2014
By D. Webb - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Before Stephen R. Covey was Stephen R. Covey, he wrote several books that addressed more spiritual issues. Two of them are among the very few books I feel changed my life. One of them was The Divine Center and the other is this book. Spirituality is an important facet of my life and as such, this book is an excellent guide to incorporating it into my relationships with others. It doesn't make me perfect, but it enables me to see my relationships in a very different way. In addition to being a spiritual guidebook, it is also a practical one as well - which is one of the halmarks of Covey's other works. I recommend this book to anyone looking to enhance the quality of their relationships.
