    This book changed how I worked and how I set goals. It isn't the feel-good self-help book it appears. Read again before going back to work in January 2014. I think it's fitting that the first time I read this, I was in grad school and planning for the future, and that I would read ...

    I think the sign of a great book is when, right inside the cover there is a pull out brochure that encourages you to order more of the authors products - that's some quality shit when you see that. But the book itself, well it has charts: flow charts, boxed charts, circle charts, up...

    Oh my Gawd, how much did I hate this one. We had to read this the summer before a freshman college Intro to Business Class - perhaps I read it at the wrong age? When Steven Covey starts talking about his kid mowing the lawn and the motivation behind it...ugh! Needless to say, I onl...

    Ever since I worked at the bookstore at Virginia Tech, I would watch the douchebag* business major undergrads buy this book for their classes and look down upon them, and the book by association, as, well, douchebags. *This is not to say that all undergrad business majors are douche...

    I would like to make clear that David Hasselhoff's appearance in this review should in no way be deemed to imply that I endorse or support his career in any way whatsoever.Thank you for your understanding. FIVE "PRACTICAL" HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE First, a few co...

    This book explains 7 principles that make a person more effective personally and professionally. Covey shows how a principle-centered, character-based life helps you build the healthy relationships that are key to an effective life. This classic is well worth reading for its perspectiv...

    - Hon, did you sleep okay? You look kinda weird. - Well, I don't know how to say this... - Yes? - I had this dream where I talked with God. - Was She black? - No, I'm serious! I did! It was, like, utterly real. It was the most real thing that's ever happened to me. Th...

    This was the book that made Stephen Covey at familiar name in the workplace in the 80?s and 90?s. We were asked to read this in relation to a company-wide training on the same in the mid 80?s and my friends from other companies were also required to undergo the same training. The...

    One of the most-highlighted books on Kindle, proving that human beings thrive on snappy buzz-quotes written by middle managers like David Brent who partake of the music of M People and Steely Dan Kool & The Gang, and whose souls were long ago vacuumed out in a boardroom somewhere d...

    This book was just alright. I was slightly disappointed as I have had this book recommended to me by countless people so I did expect better. I felt it could have been condensed to a quarter of its size easily.The book was also written in the 80s and I could easily tell (personally, I ...

    This is my husband's favorite book. Obviously he is more effective than I am. Dividing my life into squares, writing in those squares the things I have to do, then doing the "most important" may make me effective, but is that my best life? Choosing to do the things that I want ...

    One of the most disappointing experiences of my life was going to Columbia University in hopes of an education -- by which I mean being taught how to deal with people, and my own emotional needs, and make plans for my future. This was in the mid-eighties. Well, the books I had to read ...

    I'm not able to rate this fairly as a reader coming to it in 2017. This was one of the first "personal development" books, and the other 4 thousand books I've read on the topic all borrow from it heavily. The thing is, they borrow from it, and then make it better in every way: more int...

    This was recommended reading following on from a course and I found it to be an odd mix of the homely and the disturbing. On the whole it's probably the dogmatic air of absolute certainty that I find disturbing, that and the way he describes how he reduced his son to tears over keep...

    Undoubtedly, this one is one of the qualified sort of psychological books. If you feel confused working out your life issues and having problem get them organized you can resort to this book for figuring out what is best to do. I liked the last part most which is about the great effect...

    I bought The Seven Habits at a yard sale for $1 with little knowledge of its contents. Years later, when my life dipped to a low ebb of meaning and motivation, I picked it off the shelf in hopes of finding a spark. Inside I found wisdom, compassion, a direct approach and a love of huma...

    I read only the first twenty pages of this book, and that was enough to make me want to gouge out my own eyeballs. It is so repetitive and the author just gives all these ridiculous, impossible analogies that you're supposed to relate to or learn something from. He goes on for pages ab...

    It took me months to finish the book, as I kept practicing and re-read the habits from time to time. Besides, the book's contents is very compact that requires full focus to absorb all the ideas. But it's worth. Remind me of principles in life, giving practical guides on how to change ...

    Holy cow, this is a book people either hate or they think it's great. There were so many one's. I didn't read the book so I didn't see all the charts. I listened to this in my car and so it was just the writing bits. What I really enjoy about this book is these habits he describes ...

    I had to read this book for a professional development seminar. Then, I re-read it again, for personal reasons. It?s a book that is rich and dense, but worth the time and energy. The first notion that struck me was ?the fundamental shift of perception?, which changes our persp...

    I found this book a bit condescending and with too much of a religious feel to it. It also felt a little insincere and manipulative. I remember that everyone was reading it and swearing by it and that the author must have made millions on seminars and the like, but I found it too close...

    An okay book if you don't know how to manage your life it's probably really helpful but if you've thought about how to make yourself more productive or effective a lot of it's intuitive. Also like a lot of these books can only tell you things you have to make the changes yourself which...

    I don't think any of this is something I can actually implement and live with. This was how I felt while reading - 1. Be proactive? Yeah sure, just tell me how. 2. Begin with the end in mind? Helpful. 3. Put first things first? Well, I need someone to get my priorities in or...

    Principles This is one of those seminal pieces of work that everyone should read. It is not a business book, it is not a marriage help book, it is not a parenting book and it is not a friendship book. It is a book about YOU in a holistic context. It is about causing you to think about...
