5.0 out of 5 stars Humanistic source of motivation for life change
This became a major best-seller, highly influential in both management and personal development circles. Covey's seven habits are fairly obvious, fairly simple, yet are lost in the morass of hype and counter-hype his book provoked.
Covey looked at the characteristics of the successful, reducing these to seven principles, seven good habits that successful people...

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for being efficient, poor for finding true happiness
When I first got this book, I worked for a large company and I thought this books principles principles greatly improved my productivity.
Now I work for myself and have time to consider things more thoroughly, I realised that this book was partly responsible for me making myself thoroughly miserable.
It's fine to be an "effective" person - but what...

1.0 out of 5 stars Vastly overrated pablum, 23 April 1997
By A Customer
Mormon bromides, old saws. Why all the hype? Work hard. Follow the Golden Rule. You mustoughtshould plan ahead. Duh. It's also a very individualistic, self-centered book. The only worthwhile part is the calendar, but even that lost its appeal when it was marketed in office supply stores as a Big Deal That Will Revolutionize Your Life.

Buy a Bible instead. Cultivate a hobby. Volunteer. Any of these will do you infinitely more good than this mush.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book to read more than once, 28 Nov 1999
By 
S. James (England) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (Paperback)
This book is packed with valuable information on how to improve your life, in many ways. The book is rather like the skills described; not something that you can absorb and integrate in a short space of time. This book needs reading and re-reading, and the information needs practicing, and re-practicing. This is a classic, and definitely worth reading and more importantly, using.

2.0 out of 5 stars A chaotic, misunderstood read, 14 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Having been recommended this book by a dear friend in India, I couldn't wait to get stuck in to my copy. I found it an incredibly haphazard book, and one that I wanted to grasp the purpose of, but was unable to due to the way it was written. However, saying all that, I will attempt to read it again, I appreciate it is no "quick fix" - but how many years should I devote to reading it?
I shall certainly read Stephen Covey's other books, as I respect what he is trying to communicate - but maybe in a simpler form next time - please!
