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.

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.

If you regularly already read these types of self-improvement books and have had leadership experience, this isn't going to profoundly change your life. It will most likely just reaffirm your current habits and serve as a reminder. Still, I enjoyed listening to his CDs.

This is a must have for anyone in a leadership position. Easy to listen to in the car on your way to work. I would recommend the CD version for ease of understanding. I would also recommend this for people who are not in leadership positions as it will help you with your family, friends, and everyday life.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by, Stephen R. R. Covey I read the book seven habits of highly effective people and this book has taught me the necessary principles of personality change & how to bring effectiveness in personal life & how to bring efficiency at work. It mainly revolves around transforming personality from Dependence to Independence and from Independence to Interdependence, which is the reality of Life. Stephen Covey very well describes it in this book through personal & real examples, and by practical examples to do for own satisfaction. Its wonderful.. Virtually every aspect of your life is determined by habits and this book clearly shows you how to acquire the habits that have made so many people successful. If you want to change your life, change your habits. I recommend the 7 Principles To Become Your Own Superhero and that I would be able to share this gift with my friends, family. 7 Habits¿ remarkably well however, it isn't the only book you should read if you seek to improve but it is important to read this book.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People By Stephen R. Covey In this book Dr. Covey advances a theory for solving personal and professional problems, through a structured process of what he terms ¿Habits¿ or steps. The author formats this ¿handbook¿ of sorts in four parts, developing in often redundant and tedious detail, a roadmap for conscious control over personal change to manage realty. The central premise is rather simple: approach or live life from the inside out. The author gives a great deal of space, through a maze of Blakian charts, to sensitizing oneself to negative responses to public (interdependent) and private (independent) stimuli toward an inward revelation (private victory). Some 340 pages later, he reveals that he discovered, while on vacation in Hawaii, that there is a ¿gap between stimulus and response¿ which we must observe, engage heightened awareness to, in order to rid ourselves of the ¿negative scripting¿ inculcated into our bones by our parents and all those nasty, negative ancestors. This reader found Dr. Covey¿s characterization of this all-important inner process (¿living from the inside out¿) to, in large parts, belie the theory by over rationalizing a process that is premised as natural. For example, Dr. Covey instructs that we must learn not to control our observations of daily stimuli, lest we respect the negative, scripted responses we have inherited, yet he encourages us to analyze the ¿space between the stimulus and response¿ in order to become personally victorious over change, realty, relationships, and, in short, life as we knew it. It¿s all so ¿holistic,¿ ¿integrated,¿ it¿s so beautiful and ultimately habitual. Permit me here, totally in keeping with the Covian spirit of alluding to great authors and thinkers of the 20th century, to capsulate my thoughts about this book with a quote from a leader who was certainly a ¿transition person¿ as phrased by Anwar Sadat. In reviewing the galleys for one volume of his book The History of the English Peoples, Sir Winston Churchill wrote back to the editor¿s instructive corrections of sentences ending with a preposition: ¿This is an errant pedantry up with which I will not put. ¿ Certainly, there must be some truth to the revelation that we control both our bad relationships and our good ones-whether with loved ones, others, or ourselves. So noted, Dr. Covey. I found the book interesting, unoriginal, far too much for such a simple and rather ancient process of the human condition, and overall too mechanical. The Covian ¿correct principles¿ and ¿natural laws¿ offer more philosophical and unnecessarily religious proof than the pudding for such a simple palate as mine. I prefer meat and potatoes, anyway. Simple girl.

This book was a publishing phenomenon in the early 1990s, and it deserved to be. Stephen R. Covey managed to repackage an ethical and moral tradition thousands of years in development and make it meaningful to a late twentieth century, secular audience. Most of what you find in this book you will find in Aristotle, Cicero, Benedict, Tillotson and their heirs. Covey adds a few references to psychology, a twentieth century science, and many to Viktor Frankl, a sage of the Holocaust. Covey wraps the mix in a distinctively American can-do program of easy-looking steps calling, mostly, for self-discipline. The result is a quite worthwhile, useful manual for self-improvement. We believe most readers can learn something useful from this book, though some will find the style too familiar and easy-going, and the prescriptions easier to agree with than to act upon, much less adopt as habits.

'This and 'Mizraim Principles' are just about the only 'life-tickets' you'd ever need!' This work has stood the test of time, and is well-worth every one of its stars. It should be required reading for the secular world, along with 'The Mizraim Principles' for the Christian world. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

When I read this book, my life was a mess. My business was not making any money, I didn't have a relationship, and I was unhappy. I started working on myself from the inside out, as Dr. Covey suggests, and my life changed. I treat my customers better and I have a wonderful person to share my life with. This is a great book.
