あらすじ・解説

Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new foreword and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant and answer some of the most common questions he has received over the past 15 years.

This audio edition is the first ever unabridged recording of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

I don't understand these other reviews

Too religious? Irrational? Morality? What book are these people reading?

Does the author mention religion? Yes. He clearly states that he believes in God. That takes up approximately 2 sentences in the entire book (though he says a little more in the afterword). He also mentions that all enduring religions AS WELL AS all enduring philosophical systems agree on certain principles of human maturity and interaction, and those are the principles he bases the book on. But is The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg religious, or even spiritual? Because that's by far the primary principle in the book.

Now, I guess you could say some parts talk about morality, but not in the sense of "you must love your neighbor" or whatever. And yes, the part about being honest could be seen as morality, but considering the whole point is that honesty is a requirement for having people trust you, it strikes me that many of these negative reviews may be written by people who wanted a quick fix, a set of numerical steps on how to be successful.

But that is not what this book is about. The point of this book is that you will never be content in your life if you are looking for contentment OUTSIDE OF your life. It all has to come from within -- that is, your character, who you are. There's nothing moral about that. There's nothing religious about that. But there's also nothing easy about it. This book is work. Lifelong work. And a lot of people simply are not ready for the implications. The first time I read it I didn't realize how far away from the objective I was. But as I've grown and reread the book, I've discovered how deep it goes.

Of course, none of this is scientific. None of it is rational. That isn't the point. We aren't solving sudoku or splitting atoms. We are dealing with human emotions, and there's nothing rational about emotions. But there can be a solid approach to controlling our lives, and that's what this book is all about.

I just wish they'd hired a professional to read it.

A true guide for life

This is one of my top ten books of all time for lifelong contemplation.

Key themes of Proactivity; Setting and following priorities; Re-scripting according to principles; Win-Win; Listening to understand others; Synergy; and Renewal are fundamental, timeless and universal.

Dr. Covey's approach is unequalled in breadth and depth, while being entirely accessible to any human being. Everything he writes complements everything I've learned in life, while laboring to uproot any weeds that have grown in my internal garden. Having Dr. Covey read the material to me personally... it's the icing on the cake!

I read "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" when it first appeared decades ago; read it a second time five years later; and now, thanks to Audible, I've begun a profound study and contemplation of the material, that would have otherwise been too tedious to handle, given my other time commitments, as well as the fact that, since my work is about 90% in front of the computer, my eyes tire quickly before printed material in my non-work time.

I organize my listening in two ways: listening in the logical, step by step, chapter by chapter method on the one hand, imagining myself attending a 7 Habits seminar or class; and listening for hours at a time as I lie down to rest/relax/sleep on the other. The result is I end up hearing the material over and over, provoking thoughts and contemplations about where I am in life, where I want to go, and what I need to do to get there. I expect the process to last about six months. My goal from the reading: A complete paradigm re-adjustment for life.

This book has my highest recommendation for any person anywhere.

I did not expect to like this book

I really did not expect to like this book. I generally find the self help genre weak and I expected this title to be one more christian based positive thinking book. There is a tiny bit of faith-based stuff in the afterward, but it strives to be any-god-will-do. Mostly it is detailed, ordered, steps to, over time, improve your effectiveness.

The Seven Habits (plus the new eighth one) are:
Be Pro-Active, Set Goals, Prioritize, Think Win-Win, Listen, Synergize, Maintain, & Inspire
This list seems a bit trite, but the author takes care to build each concept upon another. It is more realistic than most self-help books and does not promise a quick fix, or riches, or power, it instead suggests an effective pattern for somewhat steady improvement. This system goes beyond having a "open mindset" to having an "abundance mindset". This does not mean an abundance of stuff, but noticing that many situations are not zero-sum, and that win-win net-positive situations are often, if not almost always, possible.

Of course doing all the things the author suggests is non-trivial, but they are generally good suggestions for making progress once you are committed to change.

The writing and narration is quite clear, folksy, and pleasant, and far from the exuberance of some books in this genre. Some may find the folksiness a bit slow and boring, try speeding it up.

BTW - some reviews mention chapter ordering issues that seem to have been fixed.

Change your Life

If you really want to change your life for the better, read this book. I would suggest not listening to this in the car, but in the quiet of your home and make notes as you do. You will truly change the way you go through life and the way you understand other people.

Excellent Insights

This book provides excellent insights into dealing with others through
introspection. It touches on Victor Frankel and others who provide examples of how to turn adversity into assets. This book is not a traditional self help book, but a companion to guide the listener into ones self.

The Best Book I've ever read!

This book is Amazing, if your real with yourself and listen to what he is saying it will have an impact on you, for life, for the good. It has changed my life as well as my thinking of it. I'm 23 and I thank God I heard this before I got old and set in my thinking. I would honestly have to say this has to be one of the best books I've ever read!! I wouldn't trade anything for it! Thanks

Great principles for life

These are great principles to learn for life, but it could be delivered in a different more direct method that will not take 14 hours

The real deal...

Sadly this book is contrarian to a lot of what goes on in our society. Thus I constantly have to "try" to practice these principles. But the trying is worth it. I have used this book as a standard for turning around the cultures of two manufacturing plants after I was hired from the outside. Those turn-arounds were only accomplished because the principles in this book work and because, if patiently applied, they give a management team a common vocabularly for they way they treat each other and their associates. My only function was to act as catalyst and insist that these principles be practiced. After a couple of years, in both cases the stress levels were way down, the morale was way up, and the performance was beyond anything known before and certainly beyond expectation. In my current assisgnment we're saving over $3M per year (450 people) and the roots of that accomplishment are in this book. It's a book to listen to, to absorb, and to go back to over and over again. An annual tuneup by listening to this program, is typical of those who REALLY try to adopt the 7 Habits (and model them). It's tough to be a perfect practitioner. One can only read and try...

Out of Order!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Hey, this is a good book to digest. However, Part 1, was out of order. Here I am listening along to the intro, and all of a sudden it told me I was in the last chapter. Highly confusing.

Once I got to the meat of the 7 Habit Sandwich, it was really good info that I'd like to take home and work on. Stephen Covey has great information, however, his delivery was a little dry, and I would find myself in a daze. Better to listen to on a long walk than on a long commute.

Has The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People turned you off from other books in this genre?

Nope.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His delivery was dry.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Several things, especially about the time management.

Any additional comments?

I don't know how to fix it, or if it has happened to anyone else, but it downloaded out of order. So watch out for that.

Timeless Book

In rebuilding our civilisation we need to reclaim the True North principles that made it great. These are based on natural laws that are embodied in human nature.

Key amongst these is recognising people as persons who are ends in themselves and understanding that ultimately we are responsible for our own lives.

In this masterpiece, the Late Stephen Covey takes us through the journey of personal transformation from the inside out. Starting with accepting responsibility for that which we can influence, we design our lives and learn to achieve a private victory. We then learn to engage with others on a win-win basis, learning to understand them and ensure we're understood so that we can build better solutions together.

Last of all, we need to constantly renew ourselves. This is an excellent book.

Meh...didn't leave me all that impressed

Quite frankly, I wasn't blown away by this book. I dont think Covey presented anything life changing and as he admits within this book - he didn't actually invent anything. Maybe my opinion would be different if I read/listened to this when I was younger and still finding my place in the world. None the less, the principles covered are important life skills and everyone should learn them from somewhere - which may or may not be this book.

What Covey did do well was arrange the principals into an easy to understand framework and relate it to every day life. On some occasions though, I feel he made far to much explanation and the end product could have been a much shorter piece of work while still maintaining its effectiveness. If you dont want to listen to 13 hours of this, Covey summarizes the content on his website, freely available to read through in about 20 minutes.

It came off as a little preachy in parts and while Covey is free to have one, religion doesn't really need to be in this book and all of these principles are 100% achievable without it.

I found Covey's reading to be top-notch though. His voice tone wasn't dreary, was clear and even calming, and I could easily listen to him narrate other of his works. The only thing annoying in the presentation was that awful little jingle/harmony they played between sections.

Too much examples made me drift away

I didn't like that it wasn't straight to the point. The book kept providing too many examples and it made me as a reader drift away and get distracted. I was really looking forward to reading this book based on the number of reviews. I finished it but it was painful.
