3.0 out of 5 stars Bit too American in style for a Brit
I bought this due to Stephen Covey appearing on the cover, but he has not actually done much about this book except a few comments.

(TOP 1000 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
Since 1922, Reader's Digest has offered its readers uplifting stories and wise insights, spiced with gentle humor. In this anthology, David K. Hatch has collected some of the best of these stories and quotations, with added commentary from inspirational writer Stephen R. Covey. Their book provides numerous examples of ordinary people living principled lives. Without fanfare, quietly and nobly, these unrecognized heroes make the world a better place. They demonstrate what conviction, charity and goodness really mean. Although many of the anecdotes are saccharine and superficial, getAbstract believes that even the most exhausted workers and jaded managers will discover words of inspiration in this book.
