I was recently shopping online for the 7 Habits books for my children. I found these and was pleasantly surprised by what looked like an extremely good deal on your website so I placed an order. The books arrived in a timely fashion. What I did not realize when I place the order is that these weren't the actual books, they were watch pocket-sized miniatures containing only extremely limited excerpts from the original text. Discovering this, I planned to send them back. When I looked at my sales receipt I noticed what I had actually been charged. The books were $4.95 each and I ordered 4 of them for about $20. The shipping and handling charge was $24.45. These are TINY books. There was an additional $1.81 tax for a grand total of $46.06. I recognize that I should've been more vigilant, but I also recognize that when dealing with a respected company, such as yours, a customer shouldn't be placed in such a position and there should be a reasonable course for resolution. Needless to say, this was a "LOSE/WIN" situation. I am deeply disappointed.

I have read this book numerous times and come away convicted to work harder at being more effective every time I read it. I think that the content and principles in this book are, for the most part, spot on and very helpful. The deficit that this book carries is that these are seven habits for a very specific personality group and mindset. If you are a flighty, creative type save yourself the frustration of trying to cram yourself into a different shaped mold. Read it once, figure out a personal application, and then turn it into paper mache.

In these days, a lot of people are wondering what Mormons' religious beliefs lead to as a philosophy of life. Read Covey. Wholesome, motivating, inspiring.

Much of the advice is good. Unfortunately it is couched in sexist, dated, annoying terms that make me want to fling the book at the author's head, even when I agree with him. Which I don't, always; some of this also is personality-dependent, and isn't going to work for my style. The author appears to believe that's my fault.

I got this book about 15 years ago as a gift from a publisher, lend it to a friend who lost it and brought a new copy for me. Still, I didn't touch it until I am searching for important answers to life this year.In summary, the author believes that to be truly effective, our center of life must be based on timeless principles, because money, church, friends, family, work, pleasure or even self are inconsistent and unreliable. If you depend on these insecured sources as your center, you will end up reacting according to their ever changing action upon you. You feel good only when these factors are in good conditions.In time management, there are quadrants:1. Important and Urgent (Deadline-driven projects)2. Important but Not Urgent (Relationship building)3. Not Important but Urgent (Phone calls)4. Not Important and Not Urgent (Pleasant activities)We always end up busy in Quadrant 1 and 3 because these are urgents. Yet to be truly effective, we need to invest time in the important Quadrant 2 activities. In fact, by investing in Quadrant 2, we are preparing ourselves to handle future Quadrant 1 activities. For example, if we invest in building up our knowledge and upgrading our skills (Quadrant 2 activities), we can avoid making ignorance mistakes that will lead us into handling Quadrant 1 activities such as correcting those mistakes.The author gave a very good example :-Suppose you were to come upon someone in the woods working feverishly to saw down a tree and asked him "What are you doing? You look exhausted!". He replied "Can't you see? I'm sawing down this tree for over five hours!". You suggested him to take a break and sharpen that saw, but he replied "I don't have time to sharpen the saw, I'm too busy sawing!"Sharpening the saw is Quadrant 2 activity that will prepare you to work more effectively in sawing down that tree, which is a Quadrant 1 activity.

One of my favorite non-fiction books

A great book on how to live the good life. The principles really get to the heart of the human experience and go beyond quick and easy measures to increase one's productivity. If you want to maintain a happy, peaceful balanced life in an increasingly chaotic world, then this book is for you.

I don't normally read self-help books, partly because I didn't need any help, but after I picked up The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People and read through it, I realized it wasn't all just self-help.In Seven Habits, Covey doesn't give a feel-good panacea for all your troubles. Instead, he introduces habits that you must develop if you want to improve your interpersonal skills.The habits themselves make sense, but applying them to your daily life is the challenge. Though, if you're applying them just to be more effective, and not to actually be a better person, you're missing the point.Recommended for business managers and others who wish to make people feel good in their presence.

Excellent book which really makes you feel positive and like you can become a better, more organised and happier person.

What can I say. This is the classic book on leading an effective life.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change was a groundbreaker when it was first published in 1990, and it continues to be a business bestseller with more than 10 million copies sold. Stephen Covey, an internationally respected leadership authority, realizes that true success encompasses a balance of personal and professional effectiveness, so this book is a manual for performing better in both arenas. His anecdotes are as frequently from family situations as from business challenges. Before you can adopt the seven habits, you'll need to accomplish what Covey calls a "paradigm shift"--a change in perception and interpretation of how the world works. Covey takes you through this change, which affects how you perceive and act regarding productivity, time management, positive thinking, developing your "proactive muscles" (acting with initiative rather than reacting), and much more.

The best time management system and certainly the most publicized. There's no big secret in what Covey has to say, it's how he says it that makes it worth while.
AlexTheHunn on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This is a highly effective book for getting your life turned around and on a path toward professional and personal success. This is certainly no a cure-all; no promised panacea here. You have to make a sincere and sustained effort. You have to apply what Covey teaches. But even failed attempts, even imperfect applications should result in improvement.

All the pages of the Fireside Edition has turned yellow, as it was printed on low quality paper, while the Barnes and Noble receipt, from 9/30/1994 remains pearly white. The book is base upon religion, which is finally mentioned, in the last page of the last chapter, quite deceptive, from someone advocating living a Principle-Centered paradigm. Bought this book, from a Barnes and Noble Book store, eon ago, and left it unread, until a recent de-cluttering initiiative. Better late than never.

                    GREAT: I enjoyed the book.I believe it is very important think to have read at the some point in my life.

This book contains a few useful recommendations. The only problem is that if you’re not naturally inclined to behave the way “highly effective people” do, it’s going to be really difficult to use the author’s advice. There’s one book that’s been recently published, Secret Techniques for Controlling Sadness, Anger, Fear, Anxiety, and Other Emotions by Vlad Koros, and it teaches how to adjust any character traits that don’t let you behave the way you want or need. In my opinion, these two book work very well together, if you’re serious about changing your habits for better.
