I bought this book after skimming through a copy of the same book that my Dad had bought.
I ended up buying 8 copies of this book and have presented them to my friends, who I am sure will also end up doing the same to their near and dear ones...

It will help you live as a better human being....gain the balance between work and family!
It will help you get your priorities right.

It will help you think positively and spread positivity to others as well.

Disappointed 11 Feb 2013
By Daniel Guerrette - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I found that the wisdom and teachings taken out of context of their books was, for me, ineffectual. A list of good things and a list of things that were hard to envision out of context.

Although I would recommend all of S. Covey's books, I would not recommend this one to anyone.

And not sorry that I did. So helpful to read the quotes that Mr. Covey thought were important and to give them consideration. I have this on my kindle and am glad it is in my library. Pick a page, any page and think about what you read. You will be glad you did, too.

A fantastic set of his greatest writings but very short 6 Jan 2013
By Robert Kirk - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The world lost one of it's leading figures in self improvement last year and this book is a very good set of his best sentences, paragraphs and thoughts. I thought it was put together well but it was very, very short. The book is only about 150 pages and quite frankly with all the filler pages and black spaces it could have been squeezed in 100 pages. It's still valuable but this book could have been much longer. Any fan of Covey will appreciate the book but it's length and substance will leave you a bit surprised.

Wonderful collection of timeless teachings 1 Jan 2013
By Chris - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The Wisdom & Teachings of Stephen R. Covey is a cool collection of quotes and stories taken not only from his various books but also from speaking engagements, articles, interviews or other materials. The books is divided into chapters focusing on a key principle or segment of life such as Integrity, Leadership, Proactivity, etc.

For those who have previously read any of Dr. Covey's work you will find yourself immediately reminded of the core principles and insights that his works teach. I found myself recognizing a number of the quotes from my readings of "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" and others. There are a lot of his works that I haven't read and I found quotes and stories from those books ringing just as true and poignant as those I already knew.

For those who haven't read any of Dr. Covey's books or aren't familiar with his work you will likely find familiar advice resonating with you. In some cases this may be due to the fact that many of his principles and teachings have engrained themselves into society. In other cases the seeming familiarity will come because of the simple truthfulness and straightforward nature of the teachings. Sometimes the best advice is the advice that you already knew but didn't realize you knew or didn't know how to articulate.

This book is a wonderful wealth of great teachings and inspiring motivation and thoughts. It would be impossible to boil down all of the great lessons, stories and thoughts from Dr. Covey into a single book but this book comes pretty close and is a great resource for wonderful advice and inspiring thoughts to help make your life better in many ways. This would certainly be a great introduction to Stephen R. Covey for those who don't know his material already and for those who do, this book is a quick batch of well organized notes and snippets of some of his most poignant teachings.
