Amazon Review

According to Steven R. Covey, to live with security and wisdom, and to have the power to take advantages of the opportunities that change creates, we need fairness, integrity, honesty and human dignity. Quite a tall order when you consider that most of us live our lives in a permanent state of flux, questioning our ideals and values and fighting a daily battle with the lack of self-confidence that stops us from taking risks of any kind. But, in The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, Covey manages to make it sound as if changing the way we look at ourselves and the world around us so that we can become more successful both personally and professionally an absolute doddle. He defines the "habits" as "the intersection of knowledge, skill and desire" and states that the "Seven Habits" of the title are not mutually exclusive, but rather when developed together help to form a well-rounded, sensitive, confident and effective human being.

As with many self-help books, much of what you read here is based on basic common sense and can at times be irritatingly obvious. However, what Covey manages to do so successfully is to break down the barriers which prevent all of us from taking a long hard look at ourselves, and then gradually introduces new rules which allow us to move first from dependence to independence and then towards the ultimate goal of interdependence. But of course, the only real way to test the value of The 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-- is to work on them. This book is as good as any place to start on the road to self-awareness and self-improvement in the workplace and in the home without becoming too irritatingly smug and self-satisfied. --Susan Harrison

Twenty-five years after it first appeared, the wisdom of The 7 Habits is more relevant than ever. On an individual level, people are burning out, and on a collective level we are burning up the planet. So Dr. Covey s emphasis on self-renewal and his understanding that leadership and creativity require us to tap into our own physical, mental, and spiritual resources are exactly what we need now. --Arianna Huffington"

This is a fantastic read for any professional, it is broken down into 7 main sections which help you to concentrate more on the bigger picture and become more effective rather than getting bogged down with short term problems.

It's quite a read, although very much worth it and the kind of book you can read multiple times over the years to harness and refresh you skills

I first read this book some 18 years ago when I joined the company I am still at today. Over the years I've thought to re-read but never have until now. I have the paperback edition with lots of notes in but wanted a version to read on my iPad, as that goes with me most places. I therefore got this Kindle edition on the kindle app - and the two together are fantastic. It's a good book anyway, but I only got part way through last time. It's given me some enduring models and ways of thinking. Re-reading it now is producing a whole new set of insights which is creating the opportunity for me to make significant changes in my life and the way I go about things.

I would highly recommend this book, not as a one off read, but as a manual for living a more satisfied, fulfilling life through taking control of our own responses to the challenges we find in the world.

I first read this as a new, green sales person trying to be better. I got bits of it, but it largely went over my head at the time.

14 years later, trying my best to be better and to help a team be better, I re read this book, and it has just clicked. I'm starting it again right away, to start actual action this time.

The CD is brilliant - a total must for a framework to structure life effectively - however the supplier [outside the UK] simply packed it in a Jiffy Bag and the case was crushed. This is a no brainer situation and very frustrating.
