    A call to action

    I bought this book because my child attends A.B Combs, the school Dr. Covey discusses the most in this book. I fell in LOVE with this school when we toured it in 2007. The energy that you can feel in this school is amazing. Everything he describes about this school is based in reality. I volunteer regularly in the school, and I can see that the children and teachers work so well together. The 7 habits theme is woven into the curriculum, not just taught separately as a subject. I've continued to send my child to this school even though my neighborhood school is consistently among the top schools academically, and Combs is a loooong drive. The reason is simple: Teaching 7 habits to children works wonders. <BR/><BR/>For all the other parents and educators, this book is a call to action. Given all the moral failings of today's political and business leaders, it is imperative that our children be taught responsibility and character ethics. I am glad Dr. Covey wrote this book, and the timing of the release of this book couldn't be better.

    Audio book rating**

    This is a review of the AUDIO BOOK only!

    I am a huge Stephen Covey fan. Don't get me wrong.

    HOWEVER, this audio book is completely useless.

    Do not purchase this in audio book format.

    Half of the audio is a review of the 7 habits. Fabulous. Except I've already read the 7 habits and have been working to incorporate that into my life.

    The other half of the audio is success stories of schools who've integrated "The Leader in Me" into their curriculum.

    I had a hard time trying to pull any meat from these bones. Chances are you will, too.

    Do yourself a favor and purchase the actual book or the ebook.

    The audio book is a waste of everyone's time.

    By the way, the reason I purchased it in audio book format was that I was going on a long road trip and wanted something to listen to in the car. Big mistake. The audio is only a couple hours long and really unhelpful.

    Highly Recommend this book!

    I really enjoyed reading this book! I felt that it was a quick easy and engaging read.
    I share what I learned from this book with anyone who will take the time to listen. I've even engaged my child's school principal and the school system administrator for teaching and learning in the hope that they will implement a program like this in our school system from elementary through high school.
