An OK follow-up to an unbeatable book,

This review is from: Living the 7 Habits: Stories of Courage and Inspiration (Hardcover)
It would be no exaggeration to say that "The Seven Habits" changed my life, and continues to do so. Every time I return to it, I find new insights and renewed inspiration.
This probably means I was expecting a bit too much from "Living the Seven Habits"! "Living the Seven Habits" is ... OK. It consists of various personal stories of people who have incorporated the seven habits into their lives, and the positive effects this has had. For the most part, I found these stories rather trite; the wonderful thing about the original book was that its insights were so universal. The personalization should have made those thoughts even more meaningful but instead left me cold.
Perhaps the most useful section is the Q&A session with Stephen Covey at the end, where he talks about further insights he has gained in the past 10 years.
To anyone who hasn't read any of Covey's work I would say: don't start here. Read "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" and come to this book if you then feel you'd benefit from a more personalised approach.
