Steven R Covey's bestselling The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People was a landmark book in the world of self-help publishing as it introduced readers to a concept of life, both personally and professional, which encourages subtle and steady changes in the way people deal with the world around them. In The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Families, Covey takes those same habits--be proactive, begin with the end in mind, put first things first, think "win/win", seek first to understand and then to be understood, synergise, sharpen the saw--and transposes them onto possibly one of the most complex and confusing relationships that a human being is ever likely to encounter: the family. When you bear in mind that whereas we have at least some opportunity for choosing our friends, our lovers and, to a certain extent, our work colleagues, we have little or no choice in the matter when it comes to our families, so trying to apply the "Seven Habits", which may have already helped to improve other aspects of your life, to this particular arena is no mean feat. However, with his customary aplomb and insight, Covey forces his readers to look in the mirror and face up to the consequences of their actions in this most delicate of areas, and comes out with a formula that will gradually help to move even the most dysfunctional of families through the stages of simple survival to a sense of stability, on to success and finally, and most importantly, to significance.
Of course, the recognition of problems and desire to change are the most important things, but once those issues have themselves been confronted then it is unlikely that you will find a more thorough self-help programme to set you on your path. --Susan Harrison

If you have young kids like me, I recommend a perfect complement 'how-to book' with Covey's ... called "The Pocket Parent." This little book is loaded with compassion and humor along with quick read insights and skills that are completely in line with Covey's principles. It specifically offers the exact words that parents can use in each situation to communicate more effectively with their kids. The book trouble-shoots most of the problem behaviors my husband and I deal with daily-such as Angry outbursts, Bedtime, Mealtime and Clean-up refusals, Tantrums, Disrespectful attitude, the "Gimmes", Morning "Crazies," Whining, Sibling fights and many more, while maintaining the dignity of both parent and child. These 2 books (one more theoretical and spiritual, the other more "hands on" and practical) have changed our lives.Read more ›
